Piece of Mind

from by David Allen Slater

/

about

We've all had things in our lives that kept us up at night....this song is about that very subject and the resolutions made to deal with it.
(note the reference to the Coast to Coast AM Radio Show that I threw in there as my way of paying homage to Art Bell and George Noory as my way of saying thanks for keeping me company during so many sleepless nights in the past)

lyrics

PIECE OF MIND
Words and Music by David Allen Slater / BMI
Copyright © 2009 by David Allen Slater
Written on April 30th, 2009

I CAN'T SLEEP
BUT I'M DREAMIN' STILL
OF THE THINGS THAT I CAN'T FIND...YET
THOUGHTS ARE RACING
AS I TOSS AND TURN
TRYING TO LEAVE THIS PAST BEHIND...YEAH
ANOTHER MINUTE GONE
THE HOURS ROLL ALONG
WILL I FIND PEACE BEFORE THE MORNING...LIGHT
THE RADIO IT PLAYS
AS PEOPLE TALK AWAY
FROM COAST TO COAST INTO THE NIGHT...YEAH

CHORUS:
AS I LAY HERE
ALL ALONE AND SILENT
I WANNA STAY HERE
AND WASH AWAY THE PAIN
FROM MY LIFE
THIS IS MY BATTLE
AND I'VE GOT TO FIGHT
TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT
FOR MY OWN
PIECE OF MIND
WHOA OH OH...OH OH...

SOFTLY WHISPERING
I CAN HEAR THE TRUTH
AS IT CLAWS IT'S WAY INSIDE...YEAH
REALIZING NOW
THIS PART I PLAYED WAS FATE
BUT IT WON'T HAUNT ME ANYMORE...NO

CHORUS:
AND AS I LAY HERE
ALL ALONE AND SILENT
I WANNA STAY HERE
AND WASH AWAY THE PAIN
FROM MY LIFE
THIS IS MY BATTLE
AND I'VE GOT TO FIGHT
TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT
FOR MY OWN
PIECE OF MIND
WHOA OH OH...OH OH..OH OH...
