Barbra Streisand – What's On My Mind lyrics
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh

I'm lying here awake
Photographs flash through my head
If only I could get some rest
I toss and turn instead
Oh I think of every child
How they should have the right to shine
Never lose their innocence
Each one born divine
Some trees learn to bend
That's how they survive
Maybe we must learn from them
To keep our hopes alive

Sometimes my eyes just want to cry
How did we come to this divide?
Is this God's creation?
One for all, but millions left behind
That's what's on my mind

The cries from distant shores
Fall on ears too deaf to care
How can people turn away
While lies pollute the air?
A wise men told us all
Only love can drive out hate
If we disregard his call
It could be too late

Sometimes my heart just wants to cry
How did we come to this divide?
Filled with frustration
One for all, but millions left behind
That's what's on my mind

And love can not exist alone
It must be shared, it must be shown
The next generation colorblind
That's what's on my mind

A new conversation
We must find
That's what's on my mind

What happened to just being kind?
That's what's on my mind
So much on my mind
My mind, so much on my mind

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
