Lyrics

play When I'm done with thinking,
play then I'm done with you.
play when I'm done with crying,
play then I'm done with you.
play when I feel so tired,
play then I'm done with you.
play everybody feels this way sometimes,
play everybody feels this way

play And I do.
play you can't hear it, but I do.
play you can't hear it, but I do.

play You're trying to convince me
play that what i've done's not right.
play I get so frustrated,
play I stay up every night.
play you ask me for an answer,
play and I'm so tired and I'm up in the air, I'm up in the air
play everybody feels this way sometimes,
play everybody feels this way

play And I do.
play you can't hear it, but I do.
play you can't hear it, but I'm feeling this way
play just because you say

play I will be ignored.
play I will be denied.
play I could be erased.
play I could be brushed aside.
play I will get scared,
play and I will get shoved down,
play but I feel like I do beause you push me around.

play I'm starting to ignore you,
play I've doubted you so long.
play I'm tired of over-thinking,
play I know you don't belong.
play now I'm asking questions,
play no one pushes me around.
play everybody feels this way sometimes,
play everybody feels this way

play And I do.
play you can't hear it, but I do.
play you don't seem angry, but I do.
play I do.

meaning Meaning

“”I Do” is a song that people often tell me they relate to as a relationship song, but it was written like a number of other songs I’ve heard have been written: about the record company asking for more music. When I felt like my record was done, they wanted to hear a single. And the song was, “You don’t hear it, but I do. When I’m done with thinking, then I’m done with you.” It’s like, you know what? I’m fed up with you. I was fed up with the record company. “When I’m done with crying, then I’m done with you.” And I was using some really straightforward lyrics, like “When I’m done with crying,” I wasn’t literally crying over the record company. But it just seemed really easy to sing, and I was trying to write something that was not so wordy, and not so poetic. Something that was really straightforward that people could understand when they heard it immediately. “Everybody feels this way sometime,” da da da da da, “I do. You don’t hear it, but I do.” Literally, the record company said they didn’t hear a single. And it was so annoying, because they had already told me they did, and then here they were coming back saying that they didn’t. I guess a relationship with a record company is somewhat of a relationship, although you put up with things with a record company that you would never put up with in a relationship. That’s what that song started as, but I’m sure I probably took things from real relationship issues.” Lisa Loeb
