My mind's got a mind of its own It takes me out a walkin' when I'd rather stay at home Takes me out to parties when I'd rather be alone My mind's got a mind of its own
I've been doing things I thought I'd never do I've been getting into trouble without ever meaning to I'd as soon settle down but I'm right back up again I feel just like a leaf out in the wind.
(chorus) I seem to forget half the things I start I try to build a house and then I tear the place apart I freeze myself on fire and then I burn myself on ice I can't count to one without thinking twice
(chorus) I tell myself to do the things I should And then I get to thinkin' that them things ain't any good. I tell myself the truth but know I'm lying like a snake You can't walk on water at the bottom of a lake.
