I Think I'm Paranoid Lyrics

You can look, but you can't touch
I don't think I like you much
Heaven knows what a girl can do
Heaven knows what you've got to prove

I think I'm paranoid
And complicated
I think I'm paranoid
Manipulated

Bend me, break me
Any way you need me
All I want is you
Bend me, break me
Breaking down is easy
All I want is you

I fall down just to give you a thrill
Prop me up with another pill
If I should fail, if I should fold
I nailed my faith to the sticking pole

I think I'm paranoid
Manipulated
I think I'm paranoid
And complicated

Bend me, break me
Any way you need me
All I want is you
Bend me, break me
Breaking down is easy
All I want is you
Ahhh

I think I'm paranoid

Bend me, break me
Any way you need me
All I want is you
Bend me, break me
Breaking down is easy
All I want is you

Steal me, deal me
Any way you heal me
Maim me, take me
You can never change me

Love me, like me
Go ahead and fight me
Please me, tease me
Go ahead and leave me

Bend me, break me
Any way you need me
As long as I want you, baby
It's alright
Bend me, break me
Any way you need me
As long as I want you, baby
It's alright

"It's about the music business. There's a line: 'If I feel down, prop me up with another pill' which came from a bad day on the road when an associate told Shirley to take a pill to settle down. It didn't work."

This song seriously is my anthem. i think its about her wanting attention from guys and she changes the way she is and lets them think that they can change her to fit their preferances, but in reality its all an act and she can never be changed inside "maim me, take me you can never change me".. she cant REALLY be changed inside, she just puts on an act 4 them so they want her (hence her thinking shes paranoid)

I don't know how you can think this song is about a guy. This song is about drugs! I thought that was pretty obvious. Here, I'll decypher it:

"you CAN (not can't) look but you can't touch i don't think i like you much heaven knows what a girl can do heaven knows what you've got to prove"

Sometimes drugs will make you high to the point where you feel on top of the world, like you can accomplish anything, and that you're hot and irresistable.

"i think i'm paranoid and complicated i think i'm paranoid MANIPULATED (not manipulate it) bend me,break me anyway you need me all i want is you bend me break me breaking down is easy all i want is you"

Weed makes you paranoid, anyone who's done it knows that. She's giving in to the high, the drug, telling it to change her (momentarily).

"i fall down just to give you a thrill prop me up with another pill if i should fail, if i should fold i nailed my faith to the stiking pole"

She's addressing the person she's getting high with. Many times while getting high with someone, we'll say something like "Oh man, I hope I don't pass out or trip badly. If I do, call soandso, their number is in my phone" or something to that nature. She's saying Cool, let's get hugh some more and if something bad happens, here's what to do.

Then she goes into the different and various reactions one can have to drugs:

"steal me, deal me,anyway you heal me maim me, take me you can never change me love me like me, come ahead and fight me please me tease me, go ahead and leave me bend me break me, anyway you need me as long as i want you baby it's all right"

I used to play Gran Turismo 2 for hours every day and this song was part of the soundtrack... I will never get it out of my head, accompanied of images of me slamming a 700hp Nissan Skyline into the barrier at seattle circuit. Awesome song.

gran tourismo.....brings me back

"Prop me up with another pill"!This line has to do with a real incident taking place while touring!Shirley wasn't feeling OK and a record-label guy offered her a pill to get her back on her feet!There is a wee bit "music-business-offence" in the song but it's not all about it
