I'm going to explain this song in my perpetive of the song it could be varied as I link it to my past experiences also.Im going to explain it line my line.

Two people will of course have experiences im the past where a previous lover have broken their heart or hurt them.Shes now met a new person that's has a broken heart and she's say how "broken hearts are made for two" they can now be united and make one whole heart which is new and working again.She says she should even really be trying to get to know someone new or get anybody to love her again because she might mess up everything.Even though she knows she's hurt about other things and know she shouldn't be trying to love someone else she's going to do it anyways and is going to make this her favourite mistake.Shes crazy and hard to handle so if he decides to stay with her it's on him but she's warning him about it."Your so brave stone cold crazy for loving me" She's saying like wow all the downfalls about me you still want to get to know she's surprised as nobody really wants to really love her.Jhenè then mentions how if her lover wants to mess about and just use her then he should just leave and now even continue anything as she's had "scars on her heart" as in she's been hurt by previous lovers and she feels like there's no hope left but if he's ready to commit than it's fine by her because she'll be ready to love him.She then repeats the your so brave.The last line "I hope yu make it out alive" she knows she's hard to deal with and has all these trust issues because of what had happened to her but because he said he was willing to go through the battle of her she wishes him the best luck.

For me, the song is about a woman who is deeply love, and at some point in her relationship with her guy she messed up.
"I am not perfect
I would never let
You think I was more than this
As good as it gets"
She owns her mistakes and is wanting him to accept her....flaws and all.

She could've just left, but she can't because she knows she would be making a HUGE mistake by running away.
"I'll have one regret
You're something I cannot miss"
So what does she do? She goes all in, leaving herself vulnerable and bare.
"I'll have one regret
You're something I cannot miss"

She's at his mercy because regardless her heart has made a choice and there's no changing that.
Right now their relationship is in "limbo", but it's not because she's trying to figure out what she wants....she's "wading" [waiting] for him to make a choice. For her, the decision is made and she's all in!
"I will be wading
I will be wading
For you
I will be waiting
I will be waiting
Till I turn blue"

She's trying to get him to understand that the relationship that they have isn't going to last if it keeps going the way it has been. So, she starts off with giving him a mental visual of what their relationship/dealings with eachother could be.
"Picture me rolling
Out in the open, baby I know
That you would notice
You have been hoping I wouldn't go"
"Picture me rolling
Out in the open
With some other man I know
That you would notice
And you were hoping
Feelings wouldn't start to grow"

I guess you could take the doing as a plea or cry for him to go back to the love they used to have.
"Don't keep me waiting
I will turn blue"
