Mostly You

I wrote this song last week. It reminded me of The Kinks’ “Too Much On My Mind,” at least lyrically, so I added the harpsichord. Just a little something to pass the time.

I didn’t get much sleep last night
There’s too much on my mind

Mostly you
Mostly you
Mostly you but other things too

Like ugliness is so cheap
And beauty is so deep
But mostly you
Mostly you
Mostly you but other things too
A love I can’t disguise
Is burning in my eyes
For mostly you
Mostly you
Mostly you but other things too
