Never Get You Off My Mind

 

Your yellow summer dress

I thought you'd keep forever

'cause every step you took

seemed in the right direction

Your pale light complexion

the depth within your gaze

at first made me afraid

but now I know you better

 

'Cause every finer detail

every conversation

every memory in time

said I'll never get you off my mind

 

Under manufactured rain

your rose gold ring went down the drain

I could have held you there forever

naked and in pain

illusions in the clouds

and you spoke everything so proud

right before the darkness

I wrapped my world around your neck

 

'Cause every finer detail

every conversation

every memory in time

said I'll never get you off my mind

 

And I wouldn't take it back

not for anything I lack

we hardly need to speak

the breath within your cheeks

I'll know until my days are done

I'll always know you better

 

'Cause every minor detail

every conversation

every memory in time

said I'll never get you off my mind
