Lyrics

In the Back of My Mind
By Fletcher Daniel

Verse #1:
I don't know how to start this 'cause I can't say "my dear"
I haven't gotten used to it and its been almost a year
But I hope your happy and life hasn't been a chore
And while I want you in my life you wouldn't recognize me anymore

Chorus:
I've been making endless efforts to get you off my mind
I keep my hands busy and I get drunk from time to time
No no matter how hard I try to get back in the light
You're always in the shadows in the back of my mind
In the back of my mind

Verse #2:
Since you've left I've been falling apart
With this book ever changing I've had to restart
I still get uneasy when I'm on your side of town
I've done my best to change my look my disguise may let me down

Chorus:
I've been making endless efforts to get you off my mind
I keep my hands busy and I get drunk from time to time
No no matter how hard I try to get back in the light
You're always in the shadows in the back of my mind
In the back of my mind

Verse #3:
Though its none of my business sometimes I still check in
If I run into someone who knows where you've been
You got a good head on your shoulders and I'm sure you'll make it far
And I'm still right where you left me if you have a change of heart

Chorus:
I've been making endless efforts to get you off my mind
I keep my hands busy and I get drunk from time to time
No no matter how hard I try to get back in the light
You're always in the shadows in the back of my mind
In the back of my mind
You're always in the shadows in the back of my mind
In the back of my mind
