"In My Own Mind" as written by and Lyle Lovett....
I get up in the morning
Drink a cup of coffee
I look out of the window
I try to get it started
I turn it all over
Plow it all under
I plant 'em in the springtime
Pick 'em in the summer

I live in my own mind
Ain't nothin but a good time
No rain just the sunshine
Out here in my own mind
I live where I can breathe
Ain't nothin but a cool breeze
Nobody that it won't please
Out here where I can breathe

Randy and Danny Ray
They'll show back up any day
That's one thing you can count on
But sometimes they'll be long gone
I'd rather be hunting
Hooked on fishing
I read it on their t-shirts
And if you don't believe it

I live in my own mind
Ain't nothin but a good time
No rain just the sunshine
Out here in my own mind
I live where I can breathe
Ain't nothin but a cool breeze
Nobody that it won't please
Out here where I can breathe

Hardwood floor creakin'
Bedroom door squeakin'
She's standing in the kitchen
I thought that she'd still be sleepin'
Kiss her on the forehead
Asked her how she slept
She says, 'honey, it's so early
Probably shouldn't speak yet'

I live in my own mind
Ain't nothin but a good time
No rain just the sunshine
Out here in my own mind
I live where I can breathe
Ain't nothin but a cool breeze
Nobody that it won't please
Out here where I can breathe

    General CommentThis song shows how down to earth he is. This is the perfect song for a summer day out in nature.

    General CommentTmo2199, you may be right, but I think the song is deeper than that. I just can't decide if he's singing about the man getting alzheimers, or the man is depressed/in denial about the deaths of Randy and Danny Ray. I'm probably overthinking it though. Love the song regardless.
