Lyrics: I aint losin my hope
I aint losin my faith
Cause I’m gonna get up baby
And fight through this pain
I wanna tell you
So do you mind?

I just found out
You’ve been cheatin’ on me
You’re gonna get your own in sweet time
Gonna make you see
I wanna show you
Do you mind?

I’ll say
I’m gonna break these chains
I’ll say
I'm like a loaded gun
Goin bang bang bang

So do you mind?
Do you mind?

You called me crazy
When I followed my heart
Now can’t you see baby
That you tore us apart?
And I wanna show you
Do you mind?

I need to make you see baby
I can put up a fight
I won’t control you
Just need to make it right
I wouldn’t tell a lie
So do you mind?

Gonna make you see
That I gotta be free
And I’m gonna say
I'm like a loaded gun
Goin bang bang bang

So do you mind?

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
