Maybe I didn't treat you Quite as good as I should Maybe I didn't love you Quite as often as I could Little things I should have said and done I never took the time You were always on my mind You were always on my mind Maybe I didn't hold you All those lonely, lonely times And I guess I never told you I am so happy that you're mine If I made you feel second best I'm so sorry I was blind You were always on my mind You were always on my mind Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died Give me, One more chance to keep you satisfied You were always on my mind You were always on my mind
