How I Remember

sometimes you took my words
and made them something new
something borrowed, something blue
somehow both wrong and true

sometimes you took my smile
and turned it inside itself
made it beg and made it wealth
made it jump from the shelf

sometimes you took my hands
just to look them over
sometimes you took my eyes
just to glaze them over
but whenever I think back
that’s not how I remember you

sometimes you took my thoughts
and made your own the same
some were crazy, some were sane
we made it into a game

sometimes you took my mind
just to bowl me over
sometimes you took my heart
just to keel me over
but whenever I think back
that’s not how I remember–
you thought I’d never leave and so
you thought you could deceive me so
you’re left without me, freed from so
many wonderful times

sometimes you took my words
my mind…..

Out Of My Mind

I thought a lot
about what you said
about what you meant

if you came along
in another time
I still would’ve seen you
still would’ve loved you
but the time was wrong
oh, the time was wrong

will you come again
in another life
will you grace my world
with your smile
will it mean as much
as it does now?

and I hurt so bad
but it’s not the end of me this time
this time
this time

can’t get you out of my mind
why can’t I get you out of my mind
can I get you out of my mind
oh, my mind
out of my…..
can I get you out of my mind (x3)
been waiting too long
can I get you out of my mind
been waiting too long
waiting too long

life without you doesn’t mean a thing
doesn’t mean a thing

get out of my head
get out of my head
get out of my head

I’m not alone
I’m not alone
