In my mind...I'm on a journey.
In some distant land, where water flows.
The crashing waves, tumble all around me.
And gentle breezes all around me blows.

In the dying sun, the water glistens.
Like diamonds on, a bejeweled crown.
I lie on sand, as white as cotton.
It's paradise that I have found.

But I'm alone with just a memory,
of bygone days, like sweet,sweet wine.
When each new day, brought new awakeness,
And thoughts of you filled up my mind.

I gaze at stars, in the heavens shining,
and wonder where it all went wrong.
That gentle breeze, now makes me shiver,
and the birds near by, have lost their song.

Wish I could never end this journey.
But, I know I must go home.
I'm going to leave, behind your memory,
to be free of you, where ever I roam.

I look once more at the land I'm leaving.
The wind whispers, a sad goodbye.
The crashing waves says not to worry,
We'll wash away all the tears you cried.

I'm once again, back in my bedroom.
That distant land left far behind.
Now I know, I can't escape you.
You're still with me, you're on my mind!
