Liner Notes: 

KC Chad says: There are about a bazillion other things I should be doing right now, but I had to get a quick write in.
So, I can be a bit of an oxymoron. Complicated, but simple. How many like grasping at straws while someone is waiting for you to figure it out? Not me--just end my misery and tell me. In that way, I'm simple.

I am a sensitive gal and I can identify with a lot of emotion that people have. I can even help them talk it out sometimes, but I am no mind reader. Unfortunately, when you know someone fairly well, they think you know EVERYTHING and they can get mad at you when you don't. They expect you to figure it out. The drawbacks of being a sensitive type--you're never allowed to be off duty in expressing your care and people misinterpret your sensitivity as mind reading and if you take yourself off duty due to mental fatigue, they think you're mad at them when you're not. That's sort of the inspiration for this song.

Roel says: Hey KC, thank you for collaborating!
I'm terribly sorry that I'm so late with the upload, and the mistakes that are still in the recording. If you like our song, let me know, so I can make a better recording.

Lyrics: 

No Mind Reader
By Kc Chad © 2019

I’m accustomed to reading the signs
But I’m not able to read your mind
I could guess and I might suspect
But knowing what you’re thinking isn’t my gift.

I’m no mind reader
No people’s seer
If you’ve got something bugging you
You’re gonna have to speak it.

I don’t like these, “you should know” games
I can see your dark emotion
But I don’t drink mind reading potions
Don’t lead me somewhere, then leave me alone

I’m no mind reader
No people’s seer
If you’ve got something bugging you
You’re gonna have to speak it.

What the heck is going on?
Where is this all coming from?
Was it something I said?
Something I did?
Someone else, something else, just a plain foul mood?

(Solo)

If I had to guess, I could be wrong
Five perchance why’s with nothing to go on
My lob could be in left outer field
Possibilities, like a ball running wild

I’m no mind reader
No people’s seer
If you’ve got something bugging you
You’re gonna have to speak it.

I’m no mind reader
No people’s seer
If you’ve got something bugging you, Oh oh,
You’re gonna have to speak it.

Yes, I can totally identify with this. Drives me NUTS when people expect me to just 'know' what's going on when I don't...

Oh, how I know how this feels! KC, I love your lyrics of "No Mind reader". It seems I had put music to them shortly after you posted them, but forgot to let you know and ask if you were okay with that. So I believe you are no mind reader. Wink I had to enter parts of the lyrics in the search field to find your song back. So happy I found it back. And here's my humble request of you're ok with us collaborating on this fine rebellious song. Smile
