You know sometimes I can’t get to sleep at night
I can’t quiet my heart or my mind
I toss and turn, I ache and burn
I get caught in the passing of time

It’s like too many miles, too many heartaches
Too much that needs to be done
Yes and too many sidewalks, too many people
Too many hours done

What’s on your mind
What’s on my mind
Is really quite the same
I’ve been working so hard
And I’m ready to play
I know just the right game

What’s on your mind
Is what’s on my mind
That’s the way it’s gonna be
I’m gonna find me a place I can hide
I want you right next to me

On I’ve never seen a more beautiful day
It’s my favorite time of year
The colors are changing, she’s rearranging
And I’m so glad to be here

I’ve been up and around, I’ve been lost, I’ve been found
I’ve seen love face to face in my dreams
And the things that I know and the things that I show
Are not always just what they seem

What’s on your mind
Is what’s on my mind
It’s just that way
It’s like catching a ride
On a beautiful river
Let it carry us all away

What’s on your mind
And what’s on my mind
Is really nothing new
I want to get you alone
I want to make you my own
Baby, I want to make love with you

What’s on your mind
And what’s on my mind
Is really quite the same
I’ve been working so hard
And I’m ready to play
Baby, I know just the right game

What’s on your mind
And what’s on my mind
Is really nothing new
I want to get you alone
I want to make you my own
Baby, I want to make love with you
