"I Don't Mind" as written by Ayak Thiik and Mark Smith....
Reality's a dream
A game in which I seem to never find out just what I am
I don't know if I'm an actor or ham
A shaman or sham but if you don't mind, I don't mind

I'm lost without a clue
So how can I undo the tangle of these webs I keep weaving?
I don't know if I should be believing
Deceptive perceiving but if you don't mind, I don't mind

I used to bet that you didn't care
But gambling never got me anywhere
Each time I used to feel so sure
Something about you made me doubt you more

How can you convince me
When everything I see just makes me feel you're putting me down
And if it's true, this pathetic clown'll keep hanging around
That's if you don't mind, I don't mind

I used to bet that you didn't care
But gambling never got me anywhere
Each time I used to be so sure
Something about you made me doubt you more

I even think you hate me when you call me on the phone
And sometimes when we go out, then I wish, I'd stayed at home
And when I'm dreaming or just lying in my bed
I think you've got it in for me, is it all in my head, is it in my head?

How can you convince me
When everything I see
Just makes me feel you're putting me down
And if it's true this pathetic clown'll keep hanging around
That's if you don't mind, I don't mind, I don't mind

    General CommentLow self esteem and paranoia. Not a good combination.

    General CommentThis is the first song that I've ever truly related to, and the first song where the lyrics have made sense to me a 100 % (well 99 % to be resonable). Anyway, to me this song describes just what I felt with my ex-boyfriend. The feeling that you're always wrong, and you don't dare to trust that you're actually loved by your partner (could be by a friend or someone else too, though). It's about not feeling worthy the persons love, and about bad selfasteem. You're getting mixed signals from your partner. Even when he or she makes an effort to show you their love, you can't really trust that gesture. It still feels like maybe their just being polite or something.
    I could go on for ages, but I'll show some selfdiciplin.

    Finally. I especially relate to the lines:

    "i even think you hate me
    when you call me on the phone
    and sometimes when we go out i wish i'd stayed at home
    and when i'm dreaming or just lying in my bed i think
    you've got it in for me
    is it all in my head
    is it in my head"

    General CommentI love this song. Really like the lyric "reality's a dream"

    Always thought that it was "something about you made me want you more"
