: Could anybody please explain the meaning of DuranDuran's song title, Come Undone.
: Thanks

It means to (be)come undone--as in falling apart at the seams from a breakup, divorce or maybe even losing your job.

Come Undone - 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)

Oh, it'll take a little time,
Might take a little crime
To come undone now

(PRECHORUS)
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

(CHORUS)
Who do you need, who do you love
When you come undone
(repeat)
(Verse 2)

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 all right
To come undone now
