"On My Mind" as written by Bernard Joseph Fanning, Darren Stuart Middleton, John Andrew Collins, Ian David Haug and Jonathan Robert Coghill....
Baby I've got you on my mind
Honey you won't ever know
How much i need ya by my side,
Promise you won't ever go
I won't take no from you this time
Cos baby I've got you on my mind
And honey I gotta show just what i can do
Cos I think I know what you're going through

I Hope you feel it the way I feel it
Hope you feel it the way i feel it too
I feel it too

So if I had this all my way
Honey you won't ever know
I'd be there to every night and day,
Promise you I'll never go
I won't hold back from you this time

'Cos baby I got you on my mind
Honey I gotta show ya just what I can do
'Cos I think I know, what you're going through
Hope you feel it the way I feel it
Hope you feel it the way I feel it too

Cos baby I got you on my mind
I won't take no from you this time
How much I need ya by my side

Babe I got ya on my mind
Yeah on my mind

I tell you I won't wait for another day
My heart died when you lose the chains (x2)

Cos honey I got you I got you on my mind
(x3)
I got you I got you on my mind
Yeah honey I gotta show

    General CommentOk its starting to piss me off how little people comment on Powderfinger songs. In my opinion they have been one of the greatest Australian bands. They actually put feeling into what they write, and do it when they play as well. This song isnt as good as Love Your Way but its still up there

    General Commentthis song introduced me to powderfinger, I was working In Darwin cleaning campers (hey I was backpacking and needed some money) this song was often on the radio, and pulled me trough that shit job. So I bought the album and saw them live when they toured trough Europe, and even chatted with Ian and JC after the show. Such a great band, nice guys, glad I discovered Powderfinger!

    General CommentThis song reminds me of when you're in love with someone and you just can't get them out of your head :)

    General CommentPaintPastel is spot on "madness and obsession". I heard Bernard read about a stalker and decided it would be cool to write a song from their perspective. I really like it as on first listen it sounds like a love song, but really the narrator is a bit sick.
