I Live In My Own Mind



In My Own Mind

I get up in the morning
I drink a cup of coffee
I look out of the window
I try to get it started
I turn it all over
Plow it all under
I plant 'em in the springtime
Pick 'em in the summer

I live in my own mind
Ain't nothin but a good time
No rain just the sunshine
Out here in my own mind
I live where I can breathe
Ain't nothin but a cool breeze
Nobody that it won't please
Out here where you can breathe

Randy and Danny Ray
They'll show back up any day
That's one thing you can count on
But sometime's they'll be long gone
I'd rather be hunting
Hooked on fishing
I read it on their t-shirts
And if you don't believe it

I live in my own mind
Ain't nothin but a good time
No rain just the sunshine
Out here in my own mind
I live where I can breathe
Ain't nothin but a cool breeze
Nobody that it won't please
Out here where you can breathe

Hardwood floor creakin'
Bedroom door squeakin'
She's standing in the kitchen
I thought she was still sleepin'
Kiss her on the forehead
Asked her how she slept
She says, 'honey it's so early,
We probably shouldn't speak yet'

I live in my own mind
Ain't nothin but a good time
No rain just the sunshine
Out here in my own mind
I live where I can breathe
Ain't nothin but a cool breeze
Nobody that it won't please
Out here where you can breathe

~ Performed by Lyle Lovett ~

(from the album, My Baby Don't Tolerate)
