Song Description

To some, this is my masterpiece: A classic superbly-written song, beautifully arranged, recorded & sung. I make no excuses for saying that!

Story Behind the Song

He knows he made mistakes, and he lost her. He's full of regret & remorse, but still he can't stop thinking about her. In fact, he's re-living the times with her, even though he knows he can never have those times back. This is pure Despair.

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...

(Repeat to fade-out).
