THOUGHTS OF YOU†††† †††††† words and music by Lenny Solomon

My eyeís stuck together;

Donít want to know the time, anyway.

Do I want to get up, no never;

Donít you tell me thereís a price to pay.

And itís such a gray day;

Gives me a chill, that runs through my bones.

Donít want to look in the mirror;

Iíd just wonder where my youth has flown.

I see you so clearly,

††††††††† I can almost reach out, and touch your face,

††††††††† Are you there, not really,

††††††††† So I keep these thoughts of you,

††††††††† I just keep these thoughts of you.

 

This road that Iíve traveled;

Sure is bumpy there can be no doubt.

It hasnít been narrow;

Thatís supposed to be, what life is all about.

Met plenty of people;

That I could talk with, just to pass the time.

But you and you only,

Could make my heart stop, flat on a dime.

I see you so clearly

††††††††† I can almost reach out, and touch your face,

††††††††† Are you there, not really,

††††††††† So I keep these thoughts of you,

††††††††† I just keep these thoughts of you.

 

Iíve got to get going;

Soon Iíll pack my things, take to the road.

Another day roaming;

Away from feelings that once overflowed.

High on the hillside;

Sun is sinking for its daily rest.

Iím standing here thinking;

Did I play it smart or just fail the test.

I see you so clearly,

††††††††† I can almost reach out, and touch your face,

††††††††† Are you there, not really,

††††††††† So I keep these thoughts of you,

††††††††† I just keep these thoughts of you.
