Shes Come Undone

SHE’S COME UNDONE
(Siedah Garrett, Michael Herring)

“This song is about an ex-friend who became spiteful when she realized my life exceeded her expectations for it. I think our responsibility is to shine as bright as we can, and not shrink because of someone else’s limited ideas about who we are and what we can accomplish.”

She thought I was all in need
She thought she could rescue me
She saw an opportunity
She thought I was under control
Without a clever thought of my own
She thought she could slow down my roll
And now she sees I’m livin’ beyond her expectations
Knows every car I drive and that I reside on the west side
She’s come undone
All of a sudden I’m having too much fun
She’s finally come undone
Another suit is in contempt
‘Cause I refuse to be pimped
She’s come undone, da, da, di-da, da
She saw that I could truly fly
She thought she controlled how high
She clipped my wings in flight
She thought she knew who I was
She thought I wouldn’t be much more
She thought that I’d had enough
But now she knows I’m livin’ beyond her expectations
Knows every car I drive, and that I reside on the west side

She’s come undone
All of a sudden, I’m having too much fun
She’s finally come undone
Another suit is in contempt
‘Cause I refuse to be pimped
Is she just afraid of who I am
Is my light a bit too bright for hers to shine
Does she think that I really give a damn
When I know the choice is be her friend
Or live a happy life, no ma’am
She’s come undone, da, da, di-da, da
