lyrics

Got a head of things to tell you
Got a good mind to do it, too
Got a will that will not be denied
So much time I’ve spent, so long content
To let ignorance be my guide
Come on, take a look
My mind’s an open book
Come and see what someone’s scribbled inside:
“Happiness, it’s clear, is happening here,
And happiness will abide.”

Is it heart or mind or body
Or all of the above?
O my love
That gets my pulse to racing,
Sets me sailing pole to pole?
O my soul

Tell your ma, tell your pa
Send them back to gape in awe
Tell my friends, too, I don’t care a bit
Tell the news, tell the world
You’re my It Girl
When I met you I said “that’s it”
Get the sitter on the phone
Get your red dress on
Got to get you into my hands
All true, all true
And all because you make me feel like a natural man

Didn’t know any better
Didn’t know any worse
Didn’t know what what was missing implied
And didn’t a deep, wide, high, long emptiness come
While I was otherwise occupied
So much time I spent, so long content
To be tumbling out of control
Into a big black hole
O my soul
O my soul
