"Trusted" as written by and Benjamin Scott Folds....
It's funny I know
But I'm disappointed in you
I thought you could read my mind
But I came home early
And saw that a drawer'd been opened
Looks like you've been reading my diary instead

How does it feel to realize
You're all alone behind your eyes?
It seems to me if you can't trust
You can't be trusted

Caught in a dream
Picking up astral signals
Some of them psychic, you better watch what you think
Happens to be that everybody else's dreams are Freudian clues
You better watch what you dream

You want to see the other side
What's going on behind the eyes
Still it seems if you can't trust
You can't be trusted

Didn't you know we're as close as we can be?

The sun's coming up
She's pulled all the blankets over
Curled in a ball
Like she's hiding from me and
That's when I know
She's gonna be pissed when she wakes up
For terrible things I did to her in her dreams

You want to see the other side
What's going on behind the eyes
Still it seems if you can't trust
You can't be trusted

Didn't you know we're as close as we can be?

Hello.

    General CommentIt's sad to realize the person you really thougt understood you, and whom you completly trusted, was really just a paranoid fake.
    That's what it says to me, at least.

    General CommentIt seems like he's with a girl who has a case of paranoia or some other psychological problem.

    General CommentGod, I LOVE this song.
    "How does it feel to realize you're all alone behind your eyes?"
    It feels sucky, that's how it feels. like likethecomet said, you feel relievedf to find someone who loves you and knows you and trusts you, but then you find out that they doubt everything you do, and don't trust you at all.
    It sucks.

    General CommentI reckon this might be about a girl who thinks she is a bit of a medium/psychic or whatever. Maybe paranoid too?

    She claims to read minds, talks about astral signals, and even does that dream interpreting crap - (eg You're dreaming of a cow, it means you miss your mother in law)

    "You wanna see the other side" maybe she wants to read peoples' minds and stuff like that coz she doesn't trust people or is paranoid? "How does it feel to realise you're all alone behind your eyes?" Kinda like 'sorry dear, but there are no dead people giving you clues'.

    It mostly seems to fit to me. also the fact that she dreams of him doing terrible things to her and her getting really scared about it supports the paranoia hypothesy.

    General CommentI don't think either of the people in the song are psychic... I just think this is about a guy who feels like his relationship with his girlfriend is falling apart... maybe he has a dream about it and writes about it in his diary... anyway he realizes his girlfriend is really paranoid and doesn't trust him.

    General CommentAlso i think this song ties directly into "Landed".. the two songs have kind of the same feel to them and at the end of this song he says "Hello..." could be saying that to the person he's phoning in "Landed".

    General CommentIt's pretty obvious. It's about a person who can't trust anything, who digs through people's stuff to try to know the truth, paranoid to the point of beleiving that someone might beable to read their thoughts and see their dreams and also trust so little as to beleive that the version of someone they see in their dreams is what that person easily could be.

    Basically, they can't trust to an extreme and that makes them impossible to trust.
