  • In your message you said, you were goin' to bed
    But I'm not done with the night
    So I stayed up and read, but your words in my head
    Got me mixed up so I turned out the light

    And I don't know how to slow it down
    My mind's racin' from chasin' pirates

    Now an ambulance screams while the silliest things
    Are floppin' around in my brain
    And I try not to dream up impossible schemes
    That swim around, wanna drown me insane

    And I don't know how to slow it down
    Oh, my mind's racin' from chasin' pirates

    And I don't know how, to slow it down
    Oh, my mind's racin' from chasin' pirates

    My mind's racin' from chasin' pirates
    My mind's racin' from chasin' pirates Writer/s: Norah Jones

  • Doug Obujen from Eastridge Mall, San Jose, Calif.I just love Nora Jone's song, 'Chasing Pirates.'. She sings it so well, with honey-soft voice. It's absolutely memorizing.
    The only problem is, is that after you've listened to it acouple of times, it will still continue to play in your head for the rest of the afternoon. Ha!
    Her music vide, is, without a doubt, captivating. It has to go down as one of the cutest videos ever made!
