Off My Mind 

- Cara Luft

40 miles from my home
40 miles on the blacktop rolling

I’m looking ahead
Those clouds are full, it’s like the sun is dead
Two months now since you’ve gone
Two months since you left me for her siren song
Oh yeah, it won’t be long til I will get you off of my mind
I’ll tell you now it won’t be long til I will get you off of my mind

Does she believe all the things you say?
Does she know that one day you’ll walk away?

Does she like where your heart has been
And that your soul is as black as sin?

Did you tell her that you can’t be trusted?
That your head’s in the clouds and your mind’s all busted?

Oh yeah, it won’t be long til I will get you off of my mind
I’ll tell you now it won’t be long til I will get you off of my mind

I won’t be the one who lies down quietly
And watches you get away
With doing all that you do best

Lyin’, cheatin’, Hurtin’, stealin’
Leaving your kids crying at their mother’s breast

I asked the Lord on high
If he’d come down and look you in the eye

Account for all the things you did
All the hearts you broke and the lies you said

He just cried and shook his head
He said the devil’s got you by the neck

Oh yeah, it won’t be long til I will get you off of my mind
I’ll tell you now it won’t be long til I will get you off of my mind

40 miles from my home
40 miles on the blacktop rolling

Sun is filling up the sky
Burning off this pain of mine
Go ahead now and play your games
I’m bowing out and I’m driving away
Oh yeah, it won’t be long til I will get you off of my mind
I’ll tell you now it won’t be long til I will get you off of my mind
