My Dilemma is one of my favorite songs from When the Sun Goes Down. It's a pop rock song, very similar to my music from my first record. It's about loving someone, but you're not really sure if that person is right for you.

– Selena in an interview with Little Angel

My Dilemma is a song performed by Selena Gomez & the Scene which appears as the eighth track on their third album, When the Sun Goes Down.

Background

This was written by the husband and wife duo of Antonina Armato and Tim James plus Karaoglu. Armato and James are co founders of the Rock Mafia record production/songwriting team, who have written for Selena since her debut album. Their contributions to her catalogue include the singles “Naturally” and “Love You Like a Love Song.” Selena discussed the song in an interview with Billboard magazine. She said: “‘My Dilemma' is my Kelly Clarkson kind of pop rock. You have to have a break up song. You have to have one of those songs about a boy that drives you crazy. It’s really just one of those songs that I can sing over and over and over again. I went into the studio three times to record that song and we did different things with it and we tried to re-record the bridge and rework the pre-choruses and it was just one of those songs I was addicted to.”

Lyrics

You make me so upset sometimes
I feel like I could lose my mind...
The conversation goes nowhere
Because you're never gonna take me there...

And I know, what I know
And I know you're no good for me
Yeah I know, what I know
And I know it's not meant to be

Here's my dilemma
One half of me wants ya
And the other half wants to forget
My-my-my dilemma
From the moment I met ya
I just can't get you out of my head

And I tell myself to run from you
But I find myself attracted to my dilemma,
My dilemma, it's you, it's you
Your eyes have told a thousand lies
But I believe them when they look in mine...
I heard the rumors but you won't come clean
I guess I'm hoping it's because of me...

And I know, what I know
And I know you're no good for me
Yeah I know, what I know
And I know it's not meant to be

Here's my dilemma
One half of me wants ya
And the other half wants to forget
My-my-my dilemma
From the moment I met ya
I just can't get you out of my head

And I tell myself to run from you
But I find myself attracted to my dilemma,
My dilemma, it's you, it's you
Woah, I could live without you
Your smile, your eyes
The way you make me feel inside
I could live without you
But I don't wanna
I don't wanna
Oh

Oh, you make me so upset sometimes

Here's my dilemma
One half of me wants ya
And the other half wants to forget
My-my-my dilemma
From the moment I met ya
I just can't get you out of my head
(Can't get you out of my)
And I tell myself to run from you
But I find myself attracted to my dilemma,
My dilemma, it's you, it's you

(It's you, it's you)
It's you, it's you, it's you, it's you (it's you...)
It's you, it's you, it's you

My-My-My Dilemma
