Lyrics
Bouncing off your wall
Pathways of my mind
Are on their way
Another way
For today

Ohho

You want me to see you
I can not see you
You want me to come for you
I can not come for you
You want an assignment
I see no concession

Shall I hang my head with yours and be blue
Send away laughter
And spend all my time, com'on darling
Thinking about you
Don't you know there are things I can't do

My mind is on its way
Another way
For today

Ohho

My spirit is so foreign
You want silence
My spirit Is taking flight
But baby you wanna cry tonight

Shall I hang my head with yours
Send away laughter and fun
And spend all my time
Thinking about you
Only about you
Don't you know there are things
That I can't do
My mind is on its way
Another way
For today
Heyheyy....
