every life is two minutes
lyrics|songsheet|recording|stereofield

it's always on my mind.
it's always on my mind.
you know i'm thinkin' all the time,
and it's always on my mind.

chorus:
think about it while you're in it,
you're lucky if you get twom minutes,
i'll tell you what i always think is true:
think about it when you hold me.
i know i always feel so lonely,
when i'm alone and far away from you.

clouds like mountains in the sky.
sun turns their silver linings gold.
some will always wonder why.
i've got to live before i'm old.

chorus
