You don't understand my feelings
You can't interpret my thoughts
You can't tell me what I'm thinking
But for years that's what you've sought

My mind is my own,
Leave it alone

You can't get inside my head
You can't go where I don't want to go
You can read hidden meanings in what I have said
But what's really inside doesn't show

My mind is my own,
Leave it alone

You can't see my mind is sacred
A sanctuary that only is mine
You can't see that the way to it is barred
Trying to break through is a crime

My mind is my own,
Leave it alone.

Who cares what's going on in my mind?
Who cares what my dreams are about?
Just what is it that you're trying to find?
Is it my words that you doubt?

My mind is my own,
Leave it alone.
