Words and music by Christopher Cross and Rob Meurer
The clock is screaming and it's time to go
The day is waiting and you're moving slow
News and weather on the radio

But your mind keeps driftin' away
Work is steady and your friends are good
You're going forward like you think you should
You'd put your heart into it if you could

But your mind keeps driftin' away
Look at your world through the windowpane
Embrace that secret thing that keeps you sane
You're always saying that you can't complain

But your mind keeps driftin' away
And your mind keeps driftin' away
The conversation turns to seeds you've sown
It gets you thinkin' 'bout someone you've known

She's always with you but she's still alone
And your mind keeps driftin' away
We make excuses but you know damn well
A dream's a story only you can tell

You've tasted heaven and you've been through hell
But your mind keeps driftin' away
And your mind keeps driftin' away
Another sunset another dawn

Hard to distinguish where the lines are drawn
Hard to imagine where the time has gone
You might discover you're where you belong
When your mind is driftin' away

And your mind keeps driftin' away
We make excuses but you know damn well
A dream's a story only you can tell
You've tasted heaven and you've been through hell

But your mind keeps driftin' away
And your mind keeps driftin' away
And your mind keeps driftin' away
