  You Were On My Mind
  (by Terry Hollahan)
 
  I took some time and made my way back to my home town
I drove the streets where as a child I used to run around
Saw the house where I was raised, trees that I once climbed
I looked around and you were on my mind

I drove past the school that tried to teach me right from wrong
And later on the place where I tried so hard to belong
I dropped into the grocery store I worked at for a time
And everywhere you were on my mind

I spent a lot of time just wishing I was someone else
Went through a lot of people in the search to find myself
I had my time of needing you, but there was nothing you could do
I guess we just ran out of time

I pulled into a vacant lot, stopped and parked the car
Reached into the backseat and pulled out this old guitar
As the sun was going down I sat and wrote these lines
And through it all you were on my mind

I spent a lot of time just wishing I was someone else
Went through a lot of people in the search to find myself
I had my time of needing you, but there was nothing you could do
I guess we both ran out of time

I pulled into the driveway late last night, slipped through the door
And found my youngest child curled up and sleeping on the floor
I picked him up and as his head fell gently into mine
I looked at him and you were on my mind
I looked at him and you were on my mind
