I tried to think about rainbows
when it gets bad
you got to think about something
to keep from going mad
I tried to think about big fat roses
when the ship starts going down
but my head is wicked jealous
don't want to talk about it right now

Chorus:
long distance
don't talk about ex-girlfriends
don't talk about you with out me
don't talk about your past

in my head
it's only in my head
in my head
it's only in my head

there’s just something about you
that gets me in a twist
and sometimes I think
that cupid is just taking a piss
it only takes one word or idea
to send me in real deep
so if you think you're clever
use the right words when you talk to me

repeat chorus

in my head
it's only in my head
in my head
it's only in my head

I really think I have a problem
I really can’t control myself
why do I get so suspicious?
do you want someone else?

cause everybody wants everybody else
everybody wants everybody else
everybody wants everybody else

only in my head...
it's only my head

in my head
it's only in my head
in my head
it's only in my head

repeat chorus

lets talk about the future
lets talk about the wedding
lets talk about Gwen Stefani
let's talk about how much you like me
and all that

in my head
it's only in my head
in my head
it's only in my head

    General CommentI didn't really like this song until I saw them live. A lot of the new No Doubt is better live.

    General CommentI simply love this song
    Specially the "everybody wants everybody else" that really shows her "craziness"

    General CommentI definitely like No Doubt's older stuff better, although I really love Return Of Saturn. This album is great as well, but you have to like this style of music. I'm glad that my music style is eclectic, so I can like all of No Doubt's stuff :) This is my first time hearing this song, just now. It's pretty cool.

    General Commentthis is simply about jealousy, the jealousy that we don't talk about, the things that we can stupidly get jealous about. When your loved one or someone you crush on talks about who they like, when your girlfriend blushes at another guy, when your girlfriend just talks to another guy. When your girlfriend talks about the future and does not mention you. THe dumb little things that you let eat you up inside, and why, cause it is only in your head.

    General CommentThis song is pretty obvious - as are most of No Doubt's songs. I have felt the same way (as what this song is about). Some topics of conversation can ruin the mood.

    General CommentThis song is my theme song.
    "in my head
    it's only in my head
    in my head
    it's only in my head " to me means that whatever is making me jealous isn't actually a problem and i'm only making it a problem in my head.

    Anyway, i love this song <3

    General CommentThis song is definitely about jealously about your significant other's past. Its about how they can say something to ruin your mood and how it just in your head. Sometimes when you find out something about there past it can put you in a real bad mood and you get jealous. You only want to think about your present and future time with that person.
