"Mind Contorted" as written by and Daniel Johnson....
G C G
I've been through some (hard?), but I'm feeling so much better
G C G
& I'm standing in your yard, I could be there forever
Em C Am D
& I know if you saw me now, you would be quite perplexed
Em C Am D
& I know if you saw me now, your mind would be contorted
G
But I love you.
C G
Everytime I think of you, the sun shines brightly on my soul
C D
But there's something missing, part of you-part of the whole.

(the rest of the song follows the pattern above)

I cried a million tears-filled an ocean with my sorrow
& if I had my way, I'd be up to see ya tomorrow

& I know if you saw me now, you would be much perplexed
& I know if you saw me now, your mind would be contorted.
But I love you.

Everytime I think of you, I feel like writing a song
& if I could win your heart, I never thought it'd take so awful long.
& I wished upon a star-hoped that we could get together
I'll be standing in your yard-we could be there forever.

& I know if you saw me now, you would be much perplexed
& I know if you saw me now, your mind would be contorted
& I know if you saw me now, you would be much perplexed
& I know if you saw me now, your mind would be contorted.
But I love you.

    General CommentNo comments? I love this song, so catchy and awesome. Anyone know if there's a no live version of this song? The only one I have it on the Frankenstein Love album.

    General CommentA studio version can be found on Fun.

    Also there is an awesome cover version by Major Matt Mason USA on the "I killed the monster"-Tribute album.

    My InterpretationMost likely my favourite song of his, at the moment. It's a beautiful open letter to Laurie Allen, explaining that he loves her and although all this time has past he can't get over what he missed out on, he still wishes they could be together and she's still the inspiration to his songs. Despite the fact he wishes to see her, he knows after all he's been through and how he's changed physically and mentally, she'd be perplexed at what she saw if they met again and her mind would be contorted as to what to think about him and how to engage him.
