"Losing My Mind" as written by and Rahsaan/heath Patterson....
The sun comes up, I think about you
The coffee cup, I think about you
I want you so, it's like I'm losing my mind

The morning ends, I think about you
I talk to friends and think about you
And do they know it's like I'm losing my mind

All afternoon doing every little chore
The thought of you stays bright
Sometimes I stand in the middle of the floor
Not going left, not going right

I dim the lights and think about you
Spend sleepless nights to think about you
You said you loved me, or were you just being kind
Or am I losing my mind

All afternoon doing every little chore
The thought of you stays bright
Sometimes I stand in the middle of the floor
Not going left, not going right

I dim the lights and think about you
Spend sleepless nights to think about you
You said you loved me, or were you just being kind
Or am I losing my mind

Or am I losing
Losing my mind

You said you loved me, or were you just being kind
Or am I losing my mind

Were you just being kind
Or am I losing my mind
Losing my mind
Losing my mind

    General CommentThis song is originally from the 1971 musical "Follies" written by Stephen Sondheim.

    Context: A former showgirl, Sally Durant Plummer, sees her past lover, Ben, at a reunion. Sally has married Ben's best friend, Buddy. Near the end of the show, she sings about her passion for Ben from the past and her obsession with him now. The song "expresses her preoccupation with Ben, her idealized lover...With infinite attention to detail, Sondheim leads Sally from sunrise to sleepless night, revealing that every second of her existence is defined by her longing...the number ...explores the extent to which she has lost herself in this make-believe world of undying desire." As originally staged, Sally comes onstage in a "clinging, beaded silver" dress, holding a microphone. She repeats her lines, reflecting "the paralysis about which she sings...the phrase 'It's like I'm losing my mind' occurs no less than six times."
