Always On My Mind – Michael Bublé


Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
Little things I should have said & done
I just never took the time

But 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'm so happy that you're mine
If I made you feel second best
Girl, I'm 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, give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied
Satisfied

Little things I should have said & done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
This last Thursday evening, Jimmy took me to a Michael Bublé concert at the Frank Erwin Center. This show was absolutely amazing! Michael Bublé has a phenomenal voice, he’s extremely funny, and he’s quite attractive. If you’ve never been to one, I highly recommend going! It was awesome!

Anyway, one of the songs Michael Bublé performed was this one. So fellow Texans, please don’t crucify me as if I committed some cardinal sin by not putting up Willie Nelson’s version of this song!

Every time I hear this song, it reminds me quite a bit about myself. Even though I’m pretty vocal about numerous things (and very articulate at that), I’ve always struggled considerably in affirming the way I feel about others, especially those who
I care about the most. I certainly don’t tell my family and friends enough that I care and love them. I do, very much so. I just don’t profess it to them the way they truly deserve.

As much as I do this to others, I know I give a good dose of this to Jimmy as well. I don’t tell him how much he means to me nearly enough. I don’t tell him enough how he’s the person who has been the most significant, positive influence in my life. I don’t tell him enough how he brightens my life. I don’t express to him sufficiently that I’m always excited to be in his presence and am grieved when I’m not. I don’t tell him enough how truly and deeply in love I am with him. I certainly don’t tell him adequately that he’s the best part of my life. I don’t tell him enough that he’s always on my mind!

That's because you are a JERK and won't let Jimmy hug you without holding his own eternal salvation over his head! LOL! Just kidding!! I kid, I kid. :P
