"In My Mind" as written by Jeffrey E Reid, Mark J Beauchemin, John Allen and Mitchell Allan Scherr....
Make this moment last forever and a day
Watching you drive by
Not letting you drive away
Can you see me trying to wave you down tonight

'Cause I need to see you one more time
You'll always be there in my mind
In my dreams you can hide
And every night I'm gonna bring you back to life

They're in my mind
An angel bathed in light
Telling me everything's gonna be alright...
If I can fall asleep tonight

Lonely is the feeling I can't comprehend
So I'm skipping the last page to see how this will end
Have you ever felt so helpless
When the walls built to protect us

Suddenly are gone
And you hate everything that's breathing
The life you're used to cheating
Has finally caught on

    General CommentThis is about the band's original bassist, who died of cancer after the aming of this record. There is a line in the last chorus that says:

    "There in my mind, standing just to my right"

    This is where jeff normally stood on stage in relation to lead singer mitch.

    Personal song yes, but not anout a girl he wants to be with...just to set the record straight!

    General CommentI thought that he was talking about his wife. Though I guess it works both ways.
    He says:
    "Angel bathed in Light..."
    And I thought that that would be directed to a more feminine direction, wouldn't you say?

    General CommentIt's about the death of someone close to him. Look at the last two lines "a life you're used to cheating has finally caught on".

    I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH.

    General CommentThis is not about the original bass player, seeing as how he died in 2004 and this album was released in 2002. I believe he was still a member of the band when Tomorrow was released anyway.
