So I'm a little left of center
I'm a little out of tune
Some say I'm paranormal
So I just bend their spoon
Who wants to be ordinary
In a crazy, mixed-up world
I don't care what they're sayin'
As long as I'm your girl

Hey, you are on my side
And they, they just roll their eyes

You get me (you get me)
When nobody understands
You come and take the chance, baby
You get me
You look inside my wild mind (my mind)
Never knowing what you'll find (you'll find)
And still you want me all the time
Yeah, you do
Yeah, you get me (you get me)

So what if I see the sunshine
In the pouring rain (pouring rain)
Some people think I'm crazy
But you say it's okay
You've seen my secret garden (secret garden)
Where all of my flowers grow
In my imagination
Anything goes

I, I am all you want
And they, they just read me wrong

You get me
When nobody understands
You come and hold my hand, baby
You get me
You look inside my wild mind (my mind)
Never knowing what you'll find (you'll find)
But still you want me all the time
Yeah, you do
Yeah you get me (you get me)

Hey, you are on my side
And they, they just roll their eyes
Yeah, yeah, yeah

'Cause you get me (you get me)
When nobody understands
You come and take the chance, baby
You get me (you get me)
When none of the pieces fit
You make sense of it (You make sense of it)
'Cause you get me (ooh)
You look inside my wild mind (my mind)
Never knowing what you'll find
And still I want you all the time
Yeah, I do
'Cause you get me (you get me)
Oh, oh oh, yeah oh oh

    General CommentGreat song! It's like about how she is misunderstood but this person always gets what she's about.

    General Commenti love this song. it's a great song for people who never cease to put up with their weirdo friends (like me). it's just about someone who shows unconditional love for their friend and she wrote this song to say thank you

    General CommentThis song totally describes my relationship with my boyfriend, Chris. I feel misunderstood by everyone, but no matter what, he's always been there and stuck by me through everything. I love you sweetie.

    General Commentthis song to me is basically about someone who is acknowledging the fact that this guy still wants her even though at times she maybe a little weird. he loves her all the same.
