Perhaps it's the color of the sun cut flat
And covering the crossroads I'm standing at
Or maybe it's the weather or something like that
But daddy, you been on my mind

I don't mean trouble, please don't put me down, don't get upset
I am not pleading or saying, "I can't forget you"
I do not walk the floor bowed down and bent but yet
Daddy, you been on my mind

Even though my mind is hazy and my thoughts ,they might be narrow
Where you been don't bother me nor bring me down in sorrow
It don't even matter who you're waking with tomorrow
Daddy, you're just on my mind

I am not asking you to say words like yes or no
Please understand me, I'm not calling for you to go
I'm just breathing to myself, pretending not that I don't know
That daddy, you been on my mind

When you wake up in the morning, baby, look inside your mirror
Oh, you know I won't be next to you, you know I won't be near
I'd just be curious to know if you can see yourself as clear
As someone who has had you on her mind
As someone who has had you on her mind
