I Don't Mind

[Verse:]

You're the personification of a melody

A good one too

The kind that gets stuck in my head so often that I don't know what to do

But the lyrics that you represent they help me carry on

So I don't mind

You're the envisionment of a fairytale

The kind that makes me cry

And even though I think I'm too old for a children's book I get swept up in the plot line

But you bring me back to old memories of timeless afternoons

So I don't mind

 

[Chorus:]

I don’t mind all the trials and tribulations

I don’t mind feeling hopeless for a while

I don’t mind understanding that I won’t have consolation

Because sometimes a good reason’s hard to find

 

[Verse:]

You’re like a dreamer’s conversation

That goes late into the night

And even though I’ve got work in the morning I'm hypnotized by the moonlight

But your drunken words of encouragement gave me reasons to be alive

So I don't mind

You're like my great grandmother’s funeral

The way it ripped my family apart

And they tried so desperately to pick up the pieces but they didn't know quite where to start

But buried deep underneath all the sadness rose a peace in all their hearts

So I don't mind

 

[Chorus:]

I don’t mind all the lack of rhyme or reason

I don't mind all these lazy afternoons

I don’t mind understanding that my life may have its seasons

But I hope my spring is coming soon

 

[Chorus:]

I don’t mind analyzing details carefully

Even though the main idea’s in my face

I don’t mind understanding that I won’t have understanding

And sometimes I’m put back in my place

I don’t mind this profession of uncertainty

I don’t mind all the stumbles and the falls

I don’t mind understanding that this shit won’t be so easy

But chasing a dream is worth it all

So I don’t mind
