Off My Mind

Daniel Amos

Off My Mind
197? Words and Music by Terry Scott Taylor

I've been brought down far too long
Lost hope to life's violent crimes
I've been shot down, robbed, and hung
But in the grip of loneliness
You give me understanding
I try to walk away, but baby it ain't no use
I can't live without you


I can't get you off of my mind
I can't get you off of my mind
I tell myself I will in time,
but I can't get you off of my mind

I've held pity like my pride
So close, so dear, and yet so killing
Who is my friend, my comfort, and guide?
Well in the grip of bitterness, You are so undemanding
You give me room to breathe
There's no pressure here
But it's like I can't live without You


To give a heart is such a dangerous thing
You put it on the line, you're really taking your chances
I guess it's worth the fall
'Cause baby after all
What good is life if it's... it's lived without love?
But I'm giving my love and I'm taking my chances
