The sun comes up 
I think about you
The coffee cup 
I think about you
I want you so 
It's like I'm losing my mind

The morning ends 
I think about you
I talk to friends
I think about you
And do they know?
It's like I'm losing my mind

All afternoon, doing every little chore 
The thought of you stays bright
Sometimes I stand in the middle of the floor 
Not going left
Not going right

I dim the lights
And think about you 
Spend sleepless nights
To think about you
You said you loved me 
Or were you just being kind
Or am I losing my mind?

I want you so 
It's like I'm losing my mind

Does no one know?
It's like I'm losing my mind

All afternoon, doing every little chore 
The thought of you stays bright
Sometimes I stand in the middle of the floor
Not going left
Not going right

I dim the lights
And think about you 
Spend sleepless nights
To think about you
You said you loved me 
Or were you just being kind! 
Or am I losing my mind?
