The Last Thing On My Mind Lyrics

It's a lesson too late for the learning, made of sand, made of sand
In the wink of an eye my soul is turnin', in your hand, in your hand

Are you going away, with no word of farewell
Will there be not a trace left behind
Oh I could've loved you better, didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

As we walk along my thoughts are tumblin', round and round, round & round
Underneath our feet is someplace rumblin', underground, underground

Are you going away, with no word of farewell
Will there be not a trace left behind
Oh I could've loved you better, didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

As I lie in my bed in the mornin' - without you, without you
Each song in my breast dies a-bornin'- without you, without you

Are you going away, with no word of farewell
Will there be not a trace left behind
Oh I could've loved you better, didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind

I've got reason a plenty for goin - this I know, this I know
The weeds have been steadily growin'- please don't go, please dont go

Are you going away, with no word of farewell
Will there be not a trace left behind
Oh I could've loved you better, didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind
