"Always On My Mind" as written by Johnny Christopher, Wayne Carson and Mark James....
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
Satisfied

Little things that I should have said and done
I never took the time
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
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should
Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could
Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely lonely times
I guess I never told you
I am so happy that you're mine

    General CommentThis song says:
    I treated you like crap, but I still love you.
    I put my work, my friends, myself above you, but I still love you.
    I dont romance you anymore, or say "I love you", but I still love you.
    So now that you are going to leave me, I am asking for a 2nd chance.... because I still love you.

    General CommentWonderful, a simply wonderful version of old Elvis song. Now if only I could get it out of my head.

    General CommentA decent remake of the Willie Nelson song.
    "Were"-past tense. That is not much of a "present". :P

    General CommentGiven the movie clip that it part of the video too, there seems to be a fairly open gay element to this.
