"Paranoid" as written by Dexter Mills, Jeffrey N Bhasker, Scott ...
Why are you so paranoid
Don't be so paranoid
Don't be so
Baby, don't worry about it
Lady, don't even think about it
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong things
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong things
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong things
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong things

Tell me right now
You really wanna spend your whole life alone?
A little time out might do you good, might do us good
Before we be done for good
Cause I could make it good I could make it hood
I can make you come I can make you go
I can make you high I can make you fly
Make you touch the sky hey maybe so
All of the time
You be up in mine checking through my cell phone baby no
You wanna kill the vibe on another night
Here's another fight oh here we go

Baby don't worry about it
Lady we'll go out to the floor
Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you
Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you

All of the time
You wanna complain about the nights alone
So now you're here with me
Show some gratitude leave the attitude way back at home
Yea you see em look
Baby let em look give us cold looks cause we look cold
Yea you heard about all the word of mouth
Don't worry about what we can't control
All the talk in the world lost in the world
Till you finally let that thing go
You wanna check in to the heartbreak hotel
But sorry we're closed

Baby don't worry about it
Lady we'll go out to the floor
Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you
Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you

Baby don't worry about it
Lady don't even think about it
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong thing
You worry bout the wrong thing, the wrong thing
You worry bout the wrong thing, the wrong thing
You worry bout the wrong thing

Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you
Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you

Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you
Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you

    General Commentjesus, this song is sick. got it on repeat all day at work...i can't stop!

    especially love that first verse:

    Tell me right now, you really wanna spend your whole life alone
    A little timeout might might do you good might do us good before we meet up for good
    Cuz I can make it good, I can make it hood, I can make you come, I can make you go
    I can make you make you high, I can make you fly, I can make you touch the sky hey baby so,
    all of of the time you be up in my checking through my cell phone baby , no
    you wanna kill the vibe on another night, here's another fight oh here we go

    General CommentClearly reflective on his past relationship and the pain it caused him. It's rare an artist, much less a rapper reveals his emotions to this degree to public and gives us an in-depth look at where he is at right now in his life. The new-wave 80s sound was a little strange to me at first, but it has grown on me. Great song!

    My InterpretationUm, I´m going to proceed from my pov and the sitatuions me and the one I love is in. o this is only my interpretation of what this song is about. It could be wrong in some places.

    Why are you so paranoid?
    Don't be so paranoid.
    Don't be so (He feels that she sometimes can be paranoid just because she doesn’t feels like that is the right way of living life)

    Baby don't worry bout it
    Hey there don't even think about it
    You worry bout the wrong things
    The wrong things[x4] (He feels like she worries too much of what might happen in the heartbreak world, he wants to share his world with her)

    All of the time you really wanna spend your whole life alone? (He wonders how on earth she can handle herself so well alone, so he wants her to experience things that he experienced)
    A little time out might do you good, might do us good (He wants her to be a bit less independent and more codependents on him; ´cause he is used to that everyone is co-depended)
    'Fore we be done for good. (Until its running out of time for her being within their world)
    Cause I can make it good I can make it hood
    I can make you come I can make you go
    I can make it high I can make it fly
    Make you touch the sky
    Hey maybe so. (He wants to make her feel comfortable in his world, and he wants her to enjoy everything in the heartbreak world with him)

    All the time you be up in my
    Checking through my cellphone
    Baby no
    You wanna kill the vibe on another night? (This is not in a situation that we could be in... but I guess the singer is pointing out that she’s worried about him having other affairs)
    Here's another fight (They fight silently whether she would in heartbreak world or not)
    Oh here we go


    (Chorus)
    Baby don't worry bout it
    Lady we'll go out to the floor (He wants her to enjoy everything with him, he wants to learn her about things that he can do in his world)

    [Kid cudi]
    Anyway they don't know you like I do
    They'll never know you
    Anyway they don't know you like I do (He knows that his friends and other people will not fully get her as good as he does, but he feels that its just fine because he wants to be the one that cares most for her)

    (Verse 2)
    All of the time you wanna complain about the nights alone
    So now you're here with me
    Show some gratitude
    Leave the attitude way back at home (He wants her to feel gratitude towards him for taking her to his world ´cause if he notice that she doesn’t enjoy it as much as he does he feels a pressure to assure her that everything’s fine and deny the fact she isn’t enjoying herself)
    Yeah you see ´em look
    Baby let ´em look
    Give you cold looks ´cause we look cold
    Yeah you heard about all the word of mouth
    Don't worry about what we can't control
    All the talk in the world lost in the world (He wants her to compete with him against others ´cause that what you are supposed to do, he doesn’t wants her to care if people are talking about their relationship and his gangs that he hang out with, ´cause he knows that is a bit because of him that they are talking about it)
    'Til you finally let that thing go
    You wanna check into the heartbreak hotel
    But sorry we're closed. (He wants to say the she lose him and his world)


    (Chorus)
    Lady don't worry bout it
    Baby we'll go out to the floor (He wants her to enjoy everything with him, he wants to learn her about things that he can do in his world)


    [Kid cudi]
    Anyway they don't know you like I do
    They'll never know you
    Anyway they don't know you like I do (He knows that his friends and other people will not fully get her as good as he does, but he feels that its just fine because he wants to be the one that cares most for her)

    Baby don't worry bout it
    Lady don't even think about
    You worry bout the wrong things
    The wrong things[x3]
    You worry bout the wrong thing (He feels like she worries too much of what might happen in the heartbreak world, he wants to share his world with her)

    [Kid cudi]
    Anyway they don't know you like I do
    They'll never know you
    Anyway they don't know you like I do[x2]
    They'll never know you. (He knows that his friends and other people will not fully get her as good as he does, but he feels that its just fine because he wants to be the one that cares most for her)

    Well, srry if my english isn´t good enough.

    General CommentA song about breaking up with a girl for mistrust. In typical Kanye fashion, because he's so awesome.

    General CommentHey, great song, the other person singing though isn't Kid Cudi like Monreflections said, it's Mr. Hudson.
    Mr. Hudson was one of the support acts for KanYe's Glow In The Dark tour when it came to Ireland, I don't know about the other countries.
    Check out KanYe's other song with Mr. Hudson, 'Supernova'
    Its Amazing!!!!
    From KanYe's Biggest fan ;)

    General CommentThis song is obviously about a dude whose cheating on his lady all the time (which the rest of the record seems to confirm), but he's telling her to relax and not worry about it, because really it doesn't matter either way. People have affairs all the time and to be frank, digging deeper only makes it worse. At least that's the perspective the song takes and well, most therapists would probably agree. Hit it and quit it, people!
