How would you say "pour your heart out" in Japanese? Is there a phrase for this?

As in "I poured my heart and soul out to you".

    Could you give an example how would you like to use this phrase?

I'm not sure there is an exact match, but these come close:

  • ありのままの自分を見せる
    show my true, bare self
  • 自分をさらけ出す
    lay myself bare
  • 気持ちを包み隠さず話す
    confess my true feelings

I hesitate to use the word 心, especially if you plan on saying this to someone in real life. But if you don't mind sounding like a maudlin love song, you can replace the 自分 or 気持ち in the above phrases with .
