about

I wrote this song when I was about 17 and uploaded a version in a lower key in 2010. (The album cover is a picture of me two months after I turned 18.)

With a capo on the 6th fret, the chords for the verse are G,D,G,C and for the chorus are G,Am, G, Am, G, C, G, C, G.

This amazing album art is by Matt Nguyen!

lyrics

My ankles keep clicking
My ideas keep sticking
I wish that I had less time
But I'm tired and tested
My heart double-breasted
And I'm waiting to lose my mind

I'm loosely configured
And often delivered
In packages tied with twine
I'm easily dented
And partly demented
And I'm not even sure I'm mine

I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind that I mind
I don't mind that I mind
I don't mind

My fingers are cracking
My spirit is lacking
I wish I knew what to do
But I'm slowed up and mindless
Deliberately kindless
And I can't ever tell what's true

I'm heartlessly hopeful
And childishly woeful
My colors are tinged with blue
I know all my demons
Their names and their seasons
But I'm still getting used to you

I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind that I mind
I don't mind that I mind
I don't mind that I mind
I don't mind
