General information

Written by: A. Lee, T. Balsamo and W. Boyd[1]

If You Don't Mind is an outtake from The Open Door.

In May 2007, a false intro appeared online, but it was confirmed on EvThreads that it is fake. This song is called "True" by Akira Yamaoka, and is included in BSO of the video game Silent Hill 2.

A promo CD containing this track [along with The Last Song I'm Wasting on You, Together Again with a longer intro, and four instrumentals (Instrumental 1, Instrumental 2, Instrumental 3 and Instrumental 4)], was put up for sale on eBay.[2] The seller of the promo was asked by "a representative of 110 Management" to withdraw the CD from sale, and the seller complied.

Evanescence performed If You Don't Mind live for the first time on October 4, 2012 in Porto Alegre, Brazil; the first show of their South American tour.[3] Amy opened the song by saying

Vin1.jpg I'm gonna do something different now; we've had this little song we've been wanting to share for about seven years now, and finally I got tired of waiting. I can't think of any place in the entire world where I'd rather play this song for the very first time; Brazil! This is called 'If You Don't Mind'. Vin2.jpg


The studio version of the song was leaked to YouTube on January 20, 2013.

It was officially released on the b-side album, Lost Whispers as part of The Ultimate Collection LP set, and then digitally released on February 17, 2017.

Lyrics

Where's the light
Killed my day
Lost in the dark of your ways
Wasting my energy, endlessly
on your sweet lie

And if you don't mind [you don't mind]
I would like to live the lie that I will survive [I will survive]
And if you don't mind [you don't mind]
I would love to slip away and leave your world behind [slip away and leave your world behind]

Insecure, I'm not so sure that [insecure, I'm not so sure that]
You're not just faking something [you're not just faking something]
Wasting our last day [Wasting our last day]
I can't take the pain, babe [I can't take the pain, babe]

And if you don't mind [and if you don't mind]
I would like to live the lie that I will survive [I will survive]
And if you don't mind [you don't mind]
I would love to slip away and leave it all behind

And if you don't mind
I would like to live the lie that I will survive
And if you don't mind [and if you don't mind]
If you don't mind [if you don't mind]
