“Only In My Mind”

This song started out as a groovy chord progression, as many of the songs I’ve written so far have. For some reason I felt it needed a slow, dreamy intro. I generally improvise and mumble a melody along with the chords until some words start coming out. Kinda like channeling. “Only In My Mind” came to me pretty quickly. I was thinking the song would be about a guy who’s secretly in love with a woman he desires, but it turned into more than that. If you check out the lyrics you’ll see that he’s delusional and bipolar. During the verses he’s talking like she’s in love with him but he’s not in love with her. He says, “I can see right through your girly flirty smile when you give me the time of day.” And then on the choruses he’s realizing that her affection for him is only is his mind and the girl wouldn’t give him the time of day. And he’s imagining that she’s giving his signals when in fact she’s “a million miles away” – it’s only in his mind.

I know you’re wondering if you’re on my mind
Your searching eyes give you away
I can see right through your girly flirty smile
When you give me the time of day

It’s oh oh oh oh only in my mind
I dream about you every night and I
Wanna make you mine
Girl you’ll never be lonely

I can always tell what’s on your mind
Everytime you glance my way
No need to speak to me baby
I can ready your mind
Even though you’re a million miles away

You’re oh oh oh oh only in my mind
I dream about you every night and I
Wanna make you mine
Girl you’ll never be lonely in my mind

You know I really want to believe in you now baby
And you know I really want to receive your love now baby
But the silly things you say
They push me away
Try to take you all the way

But you’re oh oh oh only in my mind
I think about you every time I lie
Down and close my eyes
Girl you’ll never be lonely

Only in my mind
I dream about you every night and I
Wanna make you mine
Girl you’ll never be lonely in my mind
Only in my mind
I think about you every time I lie
Down and close my eyes
Girl you’ll never be lonely
