Judy Collins – Daddy, You've Been On My Mind lyrics

Perhaps it's the colour
Of the sun cut flat
And covering the crossroads
I'm standing at
Or maybe it's the weather
Or something like that
But daddy
You've been on my mind

I don't mean trouble
Please don't put me down
Don't get upset
I am not pleading or saying
"I can't forget you"
I do not walk the floor
Bowed down and bent
But yet, daddy
You've been on my mind

Even though
My mind is hazy
And my thoughts
They might be narrow
Where you been
Don't bother me
Nor bring me down
In sorrow
It don't even matter
Who you're waking
With tomorrow
You're just on my mind

I am not asking you
To say words
Like "yes" or "no"
Please understand me
I 'm not calling
For you to go
I'm just breathing
To myself
Pretending not
That I don't know
That daddy
You've been on my mind

When you wake up
In the morning
Look inside your mirror
Oh, you know
I won't be next to you
You know
I won't be near
I'd just be
Curious to know
If you can see
Yourself as clear
As someone
Who has had you
On her mind
As someone
Who has had you
On her mind
