"Change Your Mind" as written by Brandon Flowers, Dave Brent Keuning, Mark August Stoermer and Ronnie Jr. Vannucci....
Racey days help me through the hopeless haze
But my, oh, my
Tragic eyes, I can't even recognize myself

So if the answer is no
Can I change your mind?

Out again, a siren screams at half-past ten
And you won't let go
While I ignore, that we both felt like this before
It starts to show

So if I had a chance
Would you let me know?

Why aren't you shaking?
Step back in time
Graciously taking
Oh, you're too kind

And if the answer is no
Can I change your mind?

We're all the same and love is blind
The sun is gone before it shines

And I said, if the answer is no
Can I change your mind?
If the answer is no
Can I change your mind?

    General CommentThis song is about the how crazy you feel when you're in love(Racy Days).
    It's about how this love has blown open your previously stale life(Hopeless haze)
    But she doesn't love you back, or at least you don't think she does, and you hurt inside(tragic eyes)
    You dream of asking her, and your not used to seeing yourself this way(can't even recognize)
    But you don't know what that answer will be, and if it's no, you'll do anything to make it yes(change your mind)

    You think she loves you too(we've felt like this before)
    But you're too scared to ask her, so you hide(while i ignore)
    But you wish that if you have a chance with her, she'd give some positive signal(if i have a chance)

    We're all the same
    and love can befall anyone of us at anytime(love is blind)
    But just as you fall in love and the sunlight begins to break through in your heart, it is cut back by the thought that she'd never have you(the sun is gone)

    And you just wish to ask her, and make sure her answer is yes, she loves you too(can I change your mind)

    this is what I think it means, I've felt like this before myself

    General CommentToo deep, some of you! I reckon its a song about two people who like each other but have never said anything and are scared to (him particularly). 'While I ignore, that we both felt like this before, it starts to show' - him saying that it has gone unsaid for a long time but now, he's betraying it by his actions and it's ruining things between them as mates (we've all been there). The the stuff about tragic eyes etc, he's talking about looking at his own reflection and not recognising himself because of what his feelings are doing to him.

    General CommentThis is a really good song. Maybe he wants a girl and she doesn't really want him for whatever reason and he wants to "change her mind" I can't believe no one commented on this!!

    General CommentThis song is definitely one of the many, many, many songs that describe me or how I feel. :-P I have a huge list of those that I won't post. But about the song itself, in my opinion, Jonesyfan got it right.
