OUT OF HER MIND

I had my reasons when I told her
I don't want to get serious
And now I don't remember
What the reasons were
It seems so mysterious
A bird in the hand suited me okay
Till she up and flew away

She was moving up before I knew it
Moving on before I got it
Moving out before I even had a clue
And now that I'm out of her mind
I'm going out of my mind too

I missed her smile
It took a while to figure out
That my ship had sailed
The Coast Guard and Navy
Couldn't save me
It would all be an epic fail
There may be other fish in the sea
But they don't shine like her for me

She was moving up before I knew it
Moving on before I got it
Moving out before I even had a clue
And now that I'm out of her mind
I'm going out of my mind too

I had an alibi
For every time that I would
Ignore her and forget
Now I'm an expert witness
On disappointment and regret
The jury has returned
And that's when I learn
That the punishment fits the crime
I'm out of her mind and mine
At the very same time

She was moving up before I knew it
Moving on before I got it
Moving out before I even had a clue
And now that I'm out of her mind
I'm going out of my mind too

It took so long to see it
If I'm crazy then so be it
I would say a prayer for me if I were you
I'm out of her mind
And going out of my mind too

I'm out of her mind
I'm out of my mind
