who said you could read my mind?
discover the underestimated power of 17?
i'll hire a lawyer without a face
to sue for trespassing on private property

disengage yourself, please
forget who i am
let your misconceptions go
and fall for me again

who said you could change the rules?
makes them more suitable for your tastes?
good thing i never followed them to begin with
who said you could use your smile as a weapon?
you make me melt and i feel unsafe

disengage yourself, please
forget who i am
let your misconceptions go
and fall for me again

who said you could look at me like i'm open and see through?
i try to remind myself that i don't need you
who said you could play with me?
make me think twice about what i should say?
i'm really not in the mood to be self conscious today.

who said you could?
i never did.

Awesome title for the song, and terrific usage of repetition to drill your focus on emotion into my memory!

There is a very powerful sense of interrogation in these lyrics, and whoever this song is about has obviously left you with more questions than answers.

The chorus in this tune is DOPE. I can almost see some hard rock or metal band rocking this one right now...great work!

From one songwriter to another, this song is a classic, and I'm going to check out more of your stuff right away! PEACE.
