Mind Of Its Own

(Dirk Merket)

Saw her face thru the counter-glass,
I was buying something for myself
Life's got a mind of its own
Hoping for a little smile, I was staling payment for a while Life's got a mind of its own
Never felt like this before,
I was dying just a little walking out the door
Life's got a mind of its own

And then we met, she was older,
She looked nice and that's what I told her
Life's got a mind of its own
Took her home and on the way,
We drank some booze and smoked a J.
Life's got a mind of its own
Gave me the strength I needed,
Made my move, and somehow succeeded
Life's got a mind of its own

And oh oh I should have known, I should have known
That no matter where I go, I walk alone
And oh oh I should have known, I should have known
That no matter what I do, or try to say to you...
Life's got a mind of its own

Years have gone; we both grew older,
But still remember what I told her
Life's got a mind of its own
Can't figure out what time has done,
I feel the same but my looks have gone
Life's got a mind of its own
Give me the strength I need,
To make my peace with the life I lead
Life's got a mind of its own

And oh oh I should have known, I should have known
That no matter where I go, I walk alone
And oh oh I should have known, I should have known
That no matter what I do, or try to say to you...
Life's got a mind of its own
