Lyrics

1. It's not an easy thing to look at life
From where I'm standing,
It's hard when you've been hurt to find your way.
I try and carry on and sometimes feel
That I'm succeeding,
And then I think of love and yesterday.

Refrain. So excuse me for being such a drag on you,
I'm so much in love and I'm still mad on you,
Everywhere I go and everything I do
Is with you on my mind.
Yes, I know that I'll never have you back again,
And even if I could it wouldn't be the same,
Everyone I know says it's such a shame
And I'm so unkind, but they must be blind -
It's only you on my mind.

2. To see the children play brings me right down
And starts me crying,
I know that's very wrong, but it's the pain.
You'll think that I'm all tears, but that's not true,
It's just this feeling -
If life can hurt me once it could again.

Refrain. So excuse me for being such a drag on you,
I'm so much in love and I'm still mad on you,
Everywhere I go and everything I do
Is with you on my mind.
Yes, I know that I'll never have you back again,
And even if I could it wouldn't be the same,
Everyone I know says it's such a shame
And I'm so unkind, but they must be blind -
Its only you on my mind.

Refrain. So excuse me for being such a drag on you, etc...
