Losing My Mind
(Markus Rill)

I was born in a small town, that’s a fact
my Daddy used to take me fishing, I remember that
and I remember every name of everybody in my graduation class
and forty years ago, me and Amy making out in the grass

But when Amy asks me “what did you do yesterday?”
I look at my sweet Amy and I don’t know what to say
my body still is nimble but I can’t win this race with time
‘cause I’m losing, I’m losing my mind

Next to my bathroom mirror I posted a note
“brush your teeth, shave and wash your face and then you’re good to go”
might seem funny to you but it ain’t funny to me
‘cause every day I can feel I’m fading by another degree

When Amy asks me “what did you do yesterday?”
I look at my sweet Amy and I don’t know what to say
my body still is nimble but I can’t win this race with time
‘cause I’m losing, I’m losing my mind

I can still write the way I used to always write
I can still think the way I used to think, least on a good day
but I’m not the same, my mind has changed
I’m trying to hold on but I can feel it slipping away

So when Amy asks me “what have you been doing all day?”
I look at my sweet Amy and I ain’t got a thing to say
my body still is nimble but I can’t win this race with time
‘cause I’m losing, I’m losing my mind
