"On My Mind"

Time passes like a river
Sometimes angry and strong
Sometimes wired tired muddy mired
Like a worn out gospel song

Sometimes it takes me with it
Just carries me along
Sometimes it just leaves me behind
With nothing but you on my mind

On my mind
You’re on my mind

I am always out of tune with you
But still I play along
The same blue notes the same black words
The same sad song

So I try to sleep you off
Like a good trip gone wrong
But it seems even my dreams are on your side
Nothing but you on my mind

On my mind
You’re on my mind

I keep telling myself
Cut my losses let you go
Leave the baggage of your savage love
By the side of the road

But something in you holds me
Like two too strong arms
And I cling to the thing
That is doing me harm

Like an anchor ‘round my ankle
Like a pair of cement shoes
One size may not fit all
But what fits me is you

So I wave the white flag
Nothing left to do
But surrender to the one who robs me blind
Who else but you on my mind

On my mind
You’re on my mind
