Skeeter Davis – I Look Up lyrics

I take myself to places where we didn't go
I surround myself with faces that we didn't know
I think this way I'll leave our past behind
Then I look up and see you on my mind.

I tell my friends that now I'm really over you
I say I'll find a new love but I never do
For even with somebody else I find
I look up and see you on my mind.

I see you on my mind so real I can feel you
And I reach up to hold you close so you will stay
But then I realize that I just see your memory
And a dream of love that just won't go away.

I make my heart a promise that I'll soon forget
But if there is a way I haven't found it yet
And even after death I'll bet I'll find
I'll look up and see you on my mind.

Yes, I'll look up and see you on my mind...
