mama, you’ve been on my mind lyrics – jeff buckley

perhaps it is the color of the sun cut flat
and coverin’ the crossroads i’m standing at
or maybe it’s the weather or something like that
but mama you’ve been on my mind

i mean no trouble, please don’t put me down, don’t get upset
i am not pleading or saying i can’t forget you
i do not face the floor bowed down and bent but yet
well mama you’ve been on my mind

even though my eyes are hazy and my thoughts they might be narrow
where you’ve been don’t bother me or bring me down in sorrow
i don’t even mind who you’ll be waking with tomorrow
but mama, you’re just on my mind

i am not askin’ you to say words like yes or no
please understand me, i have no place, i’m callin’ you alone
i’m just whispering to myself so i can pretend that i don’t know
mama you’re just on my mind, well mama you’re just on my mind

when you wake up in the mornin’ and baby you look inside your mirror
you know i won’t be next to, you know, i won’t be near
i’d just be curious to know if you can see yourself as clear
as someone who has had you on his mind

/ jeff buckley lyrics
