Willie Nelson – Always On My MInd lyrics

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 was married for 21 wonderful years to my high school sweet heart. And every time I hear this song it makes me cry. In 1996 she was diagnosed w/liver cancer on her birthday. Seven months later she passed away. This song makes me ask the question. Did I do all that I could have done? Did I say the right things while she was battling for her life? She will always be on my mind.

    Willie Nelson was and is still one of my favorites. This song brings tears to my eyes because 4 1/2 years ago I lost my wife to cancer. After 52 years together I realized that I didn't appreciate her as much as I should have and also said and did things that she didn't deserve. My heart breaks every single day because I had to lose her before I realized that she was the best thing that ever happened to me. I just ask her for forgiveness daily and hope that she and the good Lord will forgive 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.

    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.

    This song completely sums up my entire marriage of over 9 years to my husband. For the past month or more, he has been talking about moving to Wyoming and getting away from here because he doesn't want to cause me any more pain. He has never really asked me to go, and he will be leaving our 9 and 6 year old children behind with me, with occasional summer visits and possible holiday visits. We have had everything planned out about a new home purchase for me, and he has been in contact with realtors in Wyoming. Now, just 2 days ago, he dedicated this song to me. I don't listen to Will Nelson, and I have never paid attention to the words until now. I have done nothing but cry when I am sitting alone or in bed alone, with the kids in bed and my husband watching tv or researching land online. I am so confused and wish I could just figure things out. If you find it in your heart to do so, please pray for me and my family that everthing sorts itself out very soon.
