I've been stayin' up late
Just a thinkin' about
Ways to get you off my mind

I keep wanderin' around
Through all the lonely
Parts of town
To try and see
If I might could ever find
One last hope
That I could cling to
In case I make the break through
And finally get you off my mind

I tried givin' up dreamin'
But your memory kept schemin'
And found all kinda ways
To sneak back into my sleep

I finally quit talkin' to strangers
Out of fear there's always
The danger
They say hi, hello
Or somethin' else
You might'a said to me

I've been stayin' up late
Just a thinkin' about
Ways to get you off my mind

I keep wanderin' around
Through all the lonely
Parts of town
To try and see if I might
Could ever find
One last hope
That I could cling to
In case I make the break through
And finally get you off my mind

I swore to never
Get caught lookin'
At a single picture
That was tookin'
Of us or anywhere we ever went
Or ever even seen
I don't dare watch the news
Cause the wrecks
And the crashes
Can remind me too
That I used to ride around
And go places
In cars with you

I've been stayin' up late
Just a thinkin' about
Ways to get you off my mind

I keep stayin' up late
Just thinkin' about
Ways to get you off my mind
