Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
And maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have

If I made you feel second best
Girl I'm sorry I was blind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

And maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me,
Tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me, give me
One more chance to keep you satisfied
I'll keep you satisfied

    I have loved this woman for nearly 30 years. We broke up that long ago and she was always on my mind. We had a chance again almost 3 years ago but i was going through a divorce, lots of emotional stress, and my father died that year too. I thought things were starting to get better but she ended our remeeting earlier than i wanted (3 weeks before christmas). Love dies hard for me. She's still always on my mind.

    Sometimes it takes a person a long time to realize that he has let the only true love in his life slip away. Many years later this person realizes that the one true love has always been on his mind. Every day a thought about the lost love crosses his mind. You have always been on my mind.

    To me, it means that you should love the one you love with all your heart, and let them know it too. They aren't going to be around forever, so let them know how you feel, no matter the time or place. Only wish i had known this song before this... Happened to me...

    My grew up with my dad playing both the elvis and willie nelson versions of this song. Whenever he played it, he would sit on the sofa, close his eyes and it gave him peace. 18 years ago he passed away. I played it whenever i would think of him and it brings me peace. What a great song, god bless whoever wrote it and daddy i hope you have peace in heaven... Just know you're always on my mind
