Come Undone Lyrics

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...

    It's one hell of a deep song that I personally believe was written for me and me alone.
    If I can make some allusions to Savage Garden's "I Knew I Loved You, my interpretation goes thus:
    My one and and only soulmate, my Bliss, my perfect (immaculate) beauty, the one I've finally dreamed into life, you've finally materialized before me (made breath and skin) in the exact form I've always envisioned.
    I've been waiting for you all along. I can clearly see "Home" elegantly emblazoned upon your angelic personality. In Celine's words, you're the place I call home.
    I know that it might sound more than a little crazy, but I've always sent you the special birthday message that I wrote (created) for you on each birthday you celebrate (which has been communicated to me as a result of the divine bond we share). Point of fact, I was created for you alone.
    For my protection, I've strenuously built the toughest defences around my heart over the years, but at the sight of you, I can't keep them from falling apart at the seams. And you've shattered them all into pieces.

    It's about taking drugs when a person get depressed. "Come undone" is getting high.
    "Mine immaculate dream made breath and skin"(Two ways of getting high, by smoking and needle thru the skin).
    "Signed with a home tattoo"(needle into the arm)
    "Might take a little crime to come undone"(having drugs is against the law)
    "Or the magic i'm feeding off your fingers"(friend giving the jab)
    "Lost in a snow filled sky"(high on cokein)

    It's about giving in and no matter what happens around you, it doesn't matter.

    I once heard Duran Duran in concert on Radio 1. When he introduced this song Simon LeBon said something along the lines of 'this is a song for everyone who's falling in love for the first time, cos when you come, you come undone'.

    I feel this song has too long been a mystery. I step by step cracked this song and I feel I have a good understanding. It's about INNOCENCE. Here is my line by line interpretation compare it to actual lyrics, it also makes sense because in the video it shows a child discovering lovers:

    My beautiful child
    I've been waiting for you
    You came here signed, with a kiss from your parents,
    The song happy birthday was created for just you

    (I can never keep myself together
    Will you be taking my heart to pieces?)

    Oh, it'll take a little time to get you undone,
    might take a little wrongdoing
    to get you undone

    (PRECHORUS)
    We'll try to ignore
    the obvious signs of saddness and happiness (ideas of love outside parental love)
    Hey child, stay innocent
    And make me cry for this world (leave parents behind to cry for childs growing up)

    (CHORUS)
    Who do you need, who do you love (Questions the “child” will ask)
    When you loose your innocence
    (repeat)

    (Verse 2)
    Words, I feel I remember
    I swear I've heard them before (parents love versus a lovers love)
    Chills, are they just a reaction
    Or are they magic I'm taking off your fingers

    (Can't ever keep from giving away my innocence
    Will you please take my heart to pieces?)

    Lost, in a snow filled sky, we'll make it alright (despite all the confusion we will be ok)
    To loose our innocence.
