I Just Want Her Off My Mind

I Just Want Her Off My Mind
(Flannery)

Can’t even fan the flames no more
haunt the halls and pace the floor
post it notes on the freezer door
eyes long gone head gone sore

Prescription pills a reading light
pray for rain wait for night
different rooms no time to fight
means everything’s gonna be alright

I just want her off my mind

Am I gonna be like him
wondering what might have been
then confessing all my sins
so I can do it all over again

I just want her off my mind

Off my mind where she belongs
in his arms and in his songs
I’m too old to sleep on through
dreams that bring me back to you

I just want her off my mind

Remembering just ain’t no good
when faced with doing what you should
what my Daddy never could
like old newspapers and firewood

I just want her off my mind

Off my mind like melted snow
no particular place to go
set on up and set on fire
rank depression and desire

I just want her off my mind
