Always in My Head Lyrics

by India Arie

You're like a cool breeze on a summer's day

You're always in my head
You're always in my head

You're like a cool breeze on a summer's day
You are a river running through the desert plain
You are my shelter from the pouring rain
You were my comfort even before the pain

I can hear the sound of five drummers in the wind
Leaves blowing in the breeze, ring out like guitars
A tin can rolls across the gravel like a tambourine
I am but a vessel, so I sing because you are

In my head, you're always in my head
In my dream, you're always in my head
In my pain, you're always in my head
In my peace, you're always in my head

A rainbow of rhythm stretches across the sky
An airplane in the distance plays a beautiful cello line
It's no coincidence, it's in tune with the music in my ears
If you were a shoulder, you're where I would rest
But I am your vessel, so I hear you

In my head, you're always in my head
In my fears, you're always in my head
In my joy, you're always in my head
In my tears, you're always in my head

You're like a cool breeze on a summer's day
You are a river running through the desert plain
You been my shelter from the pouring rain
You were my comfort even before the pain
'Cause I hear you

In my head, you're always in my head
In my dream, you're always in my head
In my pain, you're always in my head
In my peace, you're always in my head
You're always in my head

In my head, you're always in my head
In my fears, you're always in my head
In my joy, you're always in my head
In my tears, you're always in my head

How could I live a day without music?
How could I live one day without you?
How could I live a day without music?
You're always in my head

Oh you are, you are love
You are, you are light
You are, you are joy
You are, you are peace
And I am, you are me
Oh, you're always in my head, in my head, in my head
