Duran Duran Come Undone Lyrics

Last updated: 06/12/2011 11:00:00 AM

(written by Duran Duran)

Mine, immaculate dream, made breath and skin, I've been waiting for you,
Signed, with a home tattoo, Happy birthday to you was created for you.

(Can't ever keep from falling apart.. At the seams)
(Can't I believe you're taking my heart.. to pieces)

Ahh, it'll take a little time, might take a little crime to come undone
Now we'll try to stay blind, to the hope and fear outside,
Hey child, stay wilder than the wind
And blow me in to cry.

Who do you need?
Who do you love?
When you come undone.


Words, playing me deja vu, Like a radio tune I swear I've heard before,
Chill, is it something real, Or the magic I'm feeding off your fingers

(Can't ever keep from falling apart.. at the seams)
(Can I believe you're taking my heart.. to pieces)

Lost, in a snow filled sky, we'll make it alright, to come undone,
Now we'll try to stay blind, to the hope and fear outside,
Hey child, stay wilder than the wind -
And blow me in to cry.

So short but makes you wonder and wonder.. | Reviewer: W76Meadow | 6/11/11

"Now we'll try to stay blind, to the hope and fear outside" -- To me.. it's a masque a protection.. you're trying to convince even yourselves that it doesn't play a part on our new try after we've come 'undone'.. from a past relation that ended badly.. that you're not putting a hard stop to your renewed feelings.. and yes I do agreed.. to come 'undone' is so different from person to person.. but this is only my humble opinion.. on the way that I perceive the lyrics.. I love this song..

Lyrics | Reviewer: Pete | 12/6/10

I think the singer is basically trying to say that everyone falls apart or "comes undone" and when that happens a lot of people are hurt because they don't have anyone to turn to. So in the song, the singer is trying to say that if the person he loves ever comes undone she shouldn't be afraid to turn to him because he will always be there and love her.

It just means that he will be there for his loved one no matter what.

beatiful song | Reviewer: Ginny | 4/7/10

the lyrics are written by the vocal Simon Le'Bon for his wife's birthday.
and I think what it's just basically trying to say is that when you come undone and are totally oblivious to what's going on around you,only then you can know who you really love and need.that is true it's not always bad to come undone even if it takes crime!

love that song | Reviewer: lambboo | 12/20/09

I always thought that this song was about a man falling in love with a teenage girl, ie 16 years old, hence hey child, and happy birthday to you was created for ya, to me meant maybe that was the first time they had sex, when she turned 16. Also it says -might take a crime, maybe they were having underage sex, I don't know. I t's definitely a alove song, but I think it's more about a sexual experience, maybe her first time, -come undone can be interpreted as losing control, or losing her virginity. I once read a story, called Pennington's Seventeenth Summer, and in it the girl loses her virginity in it, and she is crying after, UNDONE.

LAMBBOO AGAIN | Reviewer: LAMBBOO | 12/20/09

Just want to add a acorrection, if anybody cares, that book wqas called The Beethoven Medal, by K.M. Peyton.The first one in the series was called Penningtons Seventeenth Summer.R eallky good stories, suitable for young adults but I would enjoy reading again even though I'm alot older.

This is about loving someone but there was too much noise at the time, eg an ex-wife.
The person I loved was a wild beautiful child who was ready to settle down. Just took too much time for the previous relationship to come undone.
My mistake and regret!

Fish out of water | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/12/09

That is what this song is about. Like a girl dressed as a shiny fish, bound in chains is dropped in the water is totally suffocated and struggles to free herself to survive. Quite the same with someone who feels strongly for a same sex partner and wonders who he should love when he comes undone. Should he go for the conventionally sactioned or for the one he wants even if that causes crime.

Review the song Come Undone | Reviewer: Mahabub | 9/8/09

Well,i will try to describe my personal view about the song as it appears to me.
Mine, immaculate dream made breath and skin, I've been waiting for you. Well,it means to me, he finally found someone who came from his immaculate dream whom he's been waiting for.
signed,with a home tattoo, happy birthday to you was created for you. Provably, he signed her name in his heart as it will never erase or rub like tattoo and he would like to show his feelings to her birthday or simply he singed a tattoo to show at her birthday.
Can't ever keep from falling apart at the seams,can't believe you're taking my heart to pieces? well this is from another vocal and it could have totally two different meanings like it could be his another thinking from another mood or it could be a response from his lover and i believe that it's a response from her lover as she's telling, she assured him as she is previously experienced of being apart so don't need to be worried and she still believe that he's taking her heart it means she loves him too.
oh,it'll take a little time,might take a little crime to come undone means to me,yet the feeling is so strong and it will take some time or he needs to do some crime to control his feeling for time being .
We'll try to stay blind to the hope and fear outside,it means to me,he's telling that they should be neither hopeful nor the fearsome of there love.
hay child,stay wilder then the wind and blow me in to cry,it means to me,he's telling her to stay against the wind even be wilder then it which kills their love and make him cry.
who do you need,who do you love when you come undone,well,who do we need when it's hard time?we need someone we really love,believe or we can depend.
words,playing me deja vu like a radio tune i swear i've heard before.Chill,is it something real or the magic i'm feeding off your fingers.well,here he's in contradictions as every radio tells the same like every girls tell the same too and he knows it totally but again he told his self nothing couldn't be so real if it wasn't true yet his feeling is growing stronger every moment by her control.
lost,in a snow filled sky,we'll make it alright to come undone now, here it says,he's dreaming of some dream place where he would make it real someday yet reality doesn't support now thus he try to control his feelings. well i've tried by best :-) bye.

fooling ourselves | Reviewer: priet | 4/27/09

Well, from my very inner point of view, to understando this song there are two clue parts:
1. the chorus
2. when the girl sings

This music is really suggestive as well, and also I might be mixing my experience for the interpretation, but just see:
I think thet he's pretending to feel something because he wants to fall in love, but he suddenly realises that he´s fooling himself "we'll try to stay blind"... and the girl starts complaining when she knows what's really happening "can't I believe you're taking my heart to pieces". So he gives up just in the chorus: "who do you need? who do you love? when you come undone", like justifying his insensitivity and apologising for trying to pretend some affection. But it's completely true: when you're hurt you can't fall in love again until you close all cicles, the thing is that you can hurt other people without intention...

Undone after a breakup! | Reviewer: Gianna | 4/8/09

You understand this song when You COME UNDONE yourself!! I came to know the meanings when i was looking for something which could reflect what was happening in my heart, after a breakup .. and then this song told me everything!!!
