At a party where you caught me in too long a stare;
In a circle where you worked it with beauty to spare;
It was later when I left there when I realized;
That I might be the last thing on your mind.

If there are others like the others whose company you keep;
Or maybe just one but a good one who sings you to sleep;
As you lie there with your dreams near, don't be surprised;
That I might be the last thing on your mind.

I could wonder what secrets you keep, and hope that one might be me, and I could pray that someday you might be mine, or I might be, the last thing on your mind

When you're older, many years gone and time's running out;
And you look back at a good life lived well throughout;
I could be there in the thin air if not by your side;
But I might be the last thing on your mind.
