Tom Paxton – Last Thing On My Mind lyrics

Last thing on my mind
(Tom Paxton)
It's a lesson too late for the learnin'
Made of sand, made of sand
In the wink of an eye my soul is turnin'
In your hand, in your hand.
Are you going away with no word of farewell
Will there be not a trace left behind
Well, I could have loved you better
Didn't mean to be unkind
You know that was the last thing on my mind.
As we walk on, my thoughts keep tumblin'
Round and round, round and round
Underneath our feet the subways rumblin'
Underground, underground
As I lie in my bed in the mornin'
Without you, without you.
Every song in my breast lies a bornin'
Without you, without you.
You've got reasons a-plenty for goin'
This I know, this I know.
For the weeds have been steadily growin'
Please don't go, please don't go.

    Show love to they who bless your life. Because you never know, how soon they can be taken away.
    Let the little petty things, "like weeds agrowin" be pulled up, and forgotten.
    Forgive and be forgiven.
    Don't let someone go to their graves with some little grievance left unforgiven by you. You'll live to regret it if you do.
    Learn that our most precious treasures here on earth are not money, houses, land, cars, etc, but each other.
