From the recording My Own Little World


The Back of My Mind

Verse 1
I don’t mean to seem like I am so unkind
I just need to be left all alone sometimes
To be alone sometimes x 2

Thoughts and feelings race around inside my head
All the things I wish that I had done or said
I wish I’d done instead
It sucks inside my head

I find
You’re in the back of my mind
The back of my mind
Is where I still find you

It’s dark
Deep in the depths of my heart
The depths of my heart
Are where I will (must) start over

Verse 2
Memories of all the things we used to share
All of that is ruined now and you don’t care
But did you ever care? x 2

When you left you took away my peace of mind
I can’t seem to find a way to just unwind
and tame this monkey mind
and tame this monkey mind

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
Please don’t be alarmed if I am hard to find
I just need to go and be alone sometimes
To be alone sometimes x 2
