She's On My Mind

Album: Under Grey Skies (2017)
  • I've seen a lot of pretty faces
    Ain't nobody like you
    And I've never had a love like
    The one we knew
    Tell me why I had to play the clown
    Always messing around
    I can't stop thinking how I let you down, down, down

    She's on my mind, she's on my mind
    She's on my mind, she's on my mind
    I can't sleep at night
    'Cause she ain't by my side
    She's on my mind, she's on my mind
    She's on my mind, she's on my mind
    I can't sleep at night
    'Cause she ain't by my side

    My friends say that she's a keeper
    But I let her go
    Didn't know how much I need her
    'Til I was on my own
    I've been drinking but the truth won't drown
    No, the truth won't drown
    Bad medicine won't go down, down, down

    She's on my mind, she's on my mind
    She's on my mind, she's on my mind
    I can't sleep at night
    'Cause she ain't by my side
    She's on my mind, she's on my mind
    She's on my mind, she's on my mind
    I can't sleep at night
    'Cause she ain't by my side

    Ooh, the cover's over
    If I could dream I'd hold you
    Can't stop thinking
    Am I even on your mind?
    Now, the nights are colder
    Miss you on my shoulder
    Miss you there on my cheek
    Every night

    She's on my mind, she's on my mind
    She's on my mind, she's on my mind
    I can't sleep at night
    'Cause she ain't by my side

    She's on my mind, she's on my mind
    She's on my mind, she's on my mind
    I can't sleep at night
    'Cause she ain't by my side

    Ooh, the cover's over
    Miss you on my shoulder
    Miss you there on my cheek
    Every night
    I can't sleep at night
    'Cause she ain't by my side Writer/s: Benjamin Hudson, John Paul Cooper, Jon Cobbe Hume, Teemu Brunila
