I've been losing my mind
I've been living a lie
I've been running away for so long
I try to put on a face
And cover my heart
But I'm needing it now so bad

[Chorus]
I don't know how I feel
Maybe I'm mad, or maybe I'm proud
Can't find the truth, can't speak my mind
Don't know what I say, I'm just thinking out loud
Thinking out loud

No, no I can't explain
What's happened to me
I feel like I'm right and wrong
Inside everything's upside down
Everything's spinning around
And it's freaking me out

[Chorus]

If only for a day
I could be free
I bet you'd feel the same
If you were me
I'm gonna spit it out
Just let go

I've been losing my mind
I've been living a lie
I've been running away for so long

I don't know how I feel
Maybe I'm mad, or maybe I'm proud
Can't find the truth, can't speak my mind
I don't know what I say, I'm just thinking out loud

    I guess so.. especially this part..
    I've been losing my mind
    I've been living a lie
    I've been running away for so long
    I try to put on a face
    And cover my heart
    But I'm needing it now so bad

    I don't know how I feel
    Maybe I'm mad, or maybe I'm proud
    Can't find the truth, can't speak my mind
    Don't know what I say, I'm just thinking out loud

    And I'm sad as my bf kept listening to this song over & over again..

    Makes me wonder why.. =(

    She can't forget him, but she doesn't know why. She feels like she might be "mad", or "proud"... in reality, I think she needs (wants) to get back together with him. Or, yeah, get over him. Just two options essentially.

    This song seems so simple but it is full of endless meanings too- a wealth of emotions just literally boiling under the surface. Love can be really sucky at times, and this is one of those times where you feel lucky that you are not involved in it (me, I think;)).
