  • 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 I believe you're taking my heart to pieces?

    Ah, 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

    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

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

    Who do you need?
    Who do you love?
    When you come undone (can't ever keep from falling apart)

    Who do you need?
    Who do you love?
    When you come undone (can't ever keep from falling apart)

    Who do you need?
    Who do you love? (Can't ever keep from falling apart)
    Who do you love?
    When you come undone Writer/s: John Nigel Taylor, Nick Rhodes, Simon Lebon, Warren Cuccurulo

  • Chris from AmericaNicole Marie Lenz is the girl in the shark tank in the Come Undone video, i looked at her face and her birthday, she would be a teenager
    and Tessa Niles would be 35, and Tessa Niles doesn't look anything like the girl in the shark tank, but Nicole Marie Lenz does, so it's her not Tessa
  • Helena from United KingdomThis song to me is so mysteriously beautiful. The way I interpret this in my mind is love for someone who's gone a bit off the rails, a bit unhinged, come undone, and that someone needs love from a dedicated lover, to guide them through their pain. "who do you need, who do you love, when you come undone?"
  • John from South DakotaDoes anybody know what the name of the actress in the 'Come Undone' video is? NOT the video with the fish tank, the other video with the model walking around the apartment, and out in some social setting, also out in an open field. I can't find anything as to who that beautiful lady is.
