"Around My Head" as written by Matt Shultz, Brad Shultz, Jared Champion, Daniel Tichenor and Lincoln Parish....
Ooh, oh

I don't know why I got these feelings, yeah,
I just can't seem to get away from
Can you dig it?

You may never see it
No, you will find it falling off my tongue
I take it down town, finally lose it

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ah ah ah ah
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ah ah ah ah

I don't think it's very nice
To walk around my head all night
You got me tangled like a braid, tied-twisted
I don't think it's fair
Do you-oh?
You-oh?

Are you on the flip side?
You know I took the long way round
Cos all I really am is a homemade elevator

Blinded by your sunshine, put you on a plane to Paris
Lay my cards down on the table

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ah ah ah ah
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ah ah ah ah

I don't think it's very nice
To walk around my head all night
You got me tangled like a braid, tied-twisted
I don't think it's fair

Can't find a reason for these feelings-
Got enough of them
This guy he told me,
Said he's gonna send me something lovely

But even still at times I wonder
What you're thinking of me
You're prob'ly sure I lost my mind,
Oh mind, Oh mind, Oh mind, Oh mind

I don't think it's very nice
To walk around my head all night
You got me tangled like a braid, tied-twisted
I don't think it's fair

I don't think it's very polite
To walk around my head all night
You got me tangled like a braid, tied-twisted
I don't think it's fair

Ah ooh!

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ah ah ah ah
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ah ah ah ah

Oh!

    Lyric CorrectionThese lyrics are wrong.

    Here are the actual ones(directly from the packet):

    I don't know why
    I got these feelings yeah
    I just can't seem to
    Get away from
    Can you dig it

    But you may never see it
    no
    you won't find it falling off my tongue
    I'll tuck it down
    Until I finally lose it

    ohh ohh ohh ohh ah ah ah ah

    I don't think its very nice to
    walk around my head all night you
    got me tangled like a bread tie twisted
    i don't thinks its fair
    Do you?

    Out here on the flip side
    You know I took the long way Round
    cause all i really am is
    a home-made
    elevator

    Blinded by your sunshine
    Put you on a plane to old paris
    I laid cards down
    on the table

    ohh ohh ohh ohh ah ah ah ah

    I don't think its very nice to
    walk around my head all night you
    got me tangled like a bread tie twisted
    i don't thinks its fair

    Cant find a reason for these feelings
    clouding up above me
    Cause God he told me, he said he's gonna
    send me something lovely
    But even still I sit at times I wonder what
    You're thinking of me
    You're Probably sure I lost my mind oh mind
    oh mind oh mind oh mind

    I don't think it's very nice to
    walk around my head all night you
    got me tangled like a bread tie twisted
    I don't thinks it's fair

    oh oh oh oh ah ah ah ah ah

    Song MeaningThis song is in no way about his drug addiction. He's past that point in his life. This song is actually about his current love, who is from France. (They met when Matt and everyone lived in the UK).

    "Blinded by your sunshine,
    Put you on a plane to old Paris.
    Laid my cards down,
    on the table."

    He basically was really worried that she wouldn't be as fond of him as he is for her. They're from different cultures and interpret things differently. She is also quite different from him, but they still have much common ground.

    "Can't find a reason for these feelings,
    clouding up above me
    'Cause God He told me, He said He's gonna
    send me something lovely.
    But even still I sit at times I wonder what
    You're thinking of me
    You're probably sure I lost my mind oh mind
    oh mind oh mind oh mind."

    Again, here is his worry about the whole thing. But I'm happy to report that she accepted his love and is a solid part of his life.

    General CommentA personal favorite of mine from this new album, Around my Head is quite outright about it's meaning. Though I doubt anyone needs me to say it: Around My Head is a song about being lovestruck, having love for a person just out of reach.

    General CommentThis song is clearly influenced by The Pixies... Not a bad band to take notes from. Amazing song.

    General CommentObviously about him having very strong feelings for someone and it really bothers him.

    (You will never see it
    You won't find it falling of my tounge)

    This line suggests he probably knows he's in love with the person but denies it and he won't tell the person.

    The Chorus tells us he just wants to forget about the person and his feelings. Maybe he's ashamed or the feelings or maybe he knows the person dislikes him.


    Can't find a reason for these feelings-
    Got enough of them
    This guy he told me,
    Said he's gonna send me something lovely

    But even still at times I wonder
    What you're thinking of me
    You're probably sure I lost my mind,
    Oh mind, Oh mind, Oh mind, Oh mind

    He doesn't want to admit but he cares about what the person thinks about him and he hates it.

    My OpinionCan people stop saying their songs are about drugs. Stop trying to find hidden drug references in their songs because it ruins a beautiful song. Just because he admitted to taking drugs in his personal life does not automatically mean his songs are about drugs. You idiots just can't believe someone can write such amazing lyrics that you can't understand because you are stupid. So instead of admitting you don't understand them or trying harder to come up with a meaning that is actually well thought out you say their lyrics are about drugs. just my opinion, I’m probably wrong maybe I’m just a innocent naive 15 year old girl who does not understand many drug and sex references and maybe their songs are about drugs. But I like to believe their songs are not. :) by the way i think it is "red tie twisty"

    General CommentI agree. This song is really good. I love how he sings in the beginning, reminiscent of Tom Petty. And the Ohh Ohh Ahhh Ahhh reminds me of that Billy Joel song.Great CD.

    Song MeaningI dissagree.

    I've read about Matt's former Heroine addiction, and I think this song is about that. It's about hurting your loved ones with your habit and feeling guilty about it.

    "I don't think it's very nice to
    Walk around my head all night"

    The singer can't enjoy his drugs because his trips are being flooded with thoughts of his loved ones and how he's hurting them

    "Can't find a reason for these feelings-
    Got enough of them"

    Well, first off, it's "coming up around me" instead of "got enough of them". and it means the singer is confused as to why he feel so guilty now when before he was able to indulge his habit without a second thought about those around him.

    "This guy he told me,
    Said he's gonna send me something lovely"

    His dealer. 'nuff said.

    "But even still at times I wonder
    What you're thinking of me
    You're prob'ly sure I lost my mind,
    Oh mind, Oh mind, Oh mind, Oh mind"

    Again, reffering to his guilty thoughts.

    But still, it could work with the "lovestruck" theory most people initially think too. Either way, I love the song. One of the best on the new album, and I love how he sings just after the bridge.
