"On My Mind" as written by Cyrus William Bolooki, Chad Everett Gilbert, Ian R. Grushka, Stephen Lee Klein and Jordan I. Pundik....
Let's make a date out of the cinema
Then stay out till early in the morning
I always like it cause we take it slow
While everyone around us seems so hurried

It feels familiar, cause I've been here before
When your words
Swept the ground right from under me
Remember when you were so insecure
Now you can't get your hands up off of me

But the time we spent was so short
Can't believe it's time to go again
You're always on my mind, all the time
On my mind, believe it

Can we pick it up where you left off
When you said you'll never get over me
I'll take for granted every roll off your tongue
Cause you're screaming out all your honesty

You know it's time,
You see the bags at the door
I'm minutes away from departing
In exchange for a few last words
Will never be enough for me

    General CommentI love this song. It makes me think of summer for some reason. I feel it's about a guya nd girl who had such a solid relationship and when he is on the road he is always thinking of her. He can't get enough of her. Such a good song.

    General CommentI think the song is about two people who made a connection that really affected one another. Though the time spent was short, it was all that was needed to know. It was enough for the one person to know that they wanted to be with the other but I think the other person, the narrator, was unsure at first. They might have had other obligations or couldn’t reciprocate the feelings for whatever reason but now she/he is telling them that they are always on their mind, and to believe it even though it may seem hard because before they couldn’t and thus ended up apart.

    “Can we pick it up where you left off
    When you said you'll never get over me
    I'll take for granted every roll off your tongue
    Cause you're screaming out all your honesty”

    Now they are asking the person not to forget the feelings they expressed before. I think the last two lines above mean that he will pay attention to what she is saying because she’s being serious about their love, screaming out all her honesty. Maybe she had to ‘scream’...be loud because she felt it was the only way to reach this person that they want/wanted but now he’s I think trying to get her to come back to the place she was once at with him. It seems he is almost getting depressed now at the thought that he may have lost her and the last two lines I think he does a good job at screaming out his honesty. If I’m interpreting this right, he’s saying like it’ll never be enough...I’ve been taken when your word swept the ground right from under me. Her words really made an impact on him and now he realizes he is not okay with saying goodbye, he needs her.
