"Love Paranoia" as written by and Kevin Parker....
I may not be as honest as I ought to be now
When the walls go up, I said it didn't worry me
But it hit me and I cannot hold it in
I can just be paranoid, don't quell the desire to love
What was really going on, does it really fucking matter?
Baby is all you can ask me, ok, fair play here we go

I've heard those words before
Are you sure it was nothing
Cause it made me feel like dying inside
And I was insecure, but it's pure
Didn't notice until I was in love for real
And my feels gonna cross the line
Just to find what your type is
If only I could reach your mind
Oh I'd be fine, I'd be normal
Now's my time, gonna do it
And suddenly I'm the phony one
The only one with a problem
True love it bringing it out of me
The worst of me, and I know now
Do you remember the time we were
The time we were by the ocean
I didn't care if it was day or night
We were right where I wanted
Girl I'm sorry, babe I'm really really sorry

    General CommentJonJon, I'm pretty sure this song is pretty much about jealousy.

    To me it sounds like his lover has done something to make him unsure whether all of her love belongs to him (my guess would be that she talked to another guy, maybe an ex with unresolved issues) Sounds like when he asks her what is going on she says "does it really fucking matter"

    Which of course sounds like there really is something else going on, which spins him into a spiral of paranoia. In short his extreme feelings of love for her drive him crazy and make him insecure.
