From the recording Harlequin Goodnight
Sometimes my Mind
Sometimes my mind is a big bully
Always grabbing this moment from my hands
Never satisfied, never truly willing
How it got so stubborn I refuse to understand.
I’ve got a friend who calls me on the road
Sings me songs and asks me how I’m doing.
I’ve got a friend who makes light of my load
She builds me up when I’m in ruins,
She builds me up when I’m in ruins.
Yellow flowers, a rusty red tin roof,
It’s a waking dream, I’m living proof.
Will I make ends meet? Will I meet my end?
If I meet my maker will he like my friends?
I’ve got a friend who calls me when she’s sad.
Says she needs some one to make her smile.
I’ve got a friend who never calls me back
And he’s still my friend though it’s been a while,
Yeah it sure has been a while.
Sometimes my mind
Is an army general stomping around making demands.
Though it tries it’s never fully able
To lay down that sword and give up command,
To ditch the chore of making plans,
To stop keeping score with every glance,
To dare the floor and really dance.
