The last thing on my mind (Video*)

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

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

You've got reasons a-plenty for going,
|: this I know :|
For the weeds have been steadily growing
|: Please don't go :|



As we walk on, my thoughts are a-tumbling
|: round and round :|
Underneath our feet the subway's rumbling
|: underground :|


As I lie in my bed in the morning
|: without you :|
Each song in my breast dies a born-in
|: without you :|


That was the last thing on my mind!

*Beim Liveauftritt fehlt leider die 3. Strophe.
