Speak My Mind – Written by Scott Simons

With a foot out the door
And one in my way
You’re leaving me home
For another work day

I’d follow you out
But you keep my in so
I’m watching you leave
With my nose on the window

I could just sleep all day
Just to stay up at night
And keep you awake

If I could speak my mind
I’d go out on a limb
And say with a sigh
I’m the only one who sees you when you think you’re by yourself

If I’m too much to carry
Then put me down gently
If I’m too much to carry
Then put me down gently

I’ve been your pillow
For an after-work nap
And how many shrinks
Curl up in your lap

Friends come and go but I’m still here
Have you forgotten me?
My curiosity’s killing me….(Eight left to go…)

If I’m too much to carry
Then put me down gently
If I’m too much to carry
Then put me down gently
Don’t worry at all for me

I’ve always landed on my feet
So if you’re gone
At least leave the TV on
Re-runs

I could just sleep all day
Just to stay up at night
And keep you awake

If I could speak my mind
I’d go out on a limb
And say with a sigh
I’m the only one who sees you when you think you’re by yourself
(by yourself, by yourself)

If I’m too much to carry
Then put me down gently
If I’m too much to carry

Just put me down gently
Just put me down gently (If I could speak my mind)
Just put me down gently (If I could speak my mind)
Just put me down gently
