Always on My Mind – Pet Shop Boys

Thanks for the prompt, Jim Adams from Inside Our Head with a challenge of finding a song with the word Human, Mind, or Think as part of the title. And right away this song comes to my mind. Enjoy it.

Maybe I didn’t treat you
quite as good as I should
Maybe I didn’t love you
quite as often as I could
Little things I should have said and done
I never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn’t hold you
all those lonely, lonely times
and I guess I never told you
I’m so happy that you’re mine
If I made you feel second-best
I’m so sorry I was blind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn’t died
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
satisfied

Little things I should have said and done
I never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn’t died
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
satisfied
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn’t treat you
quite as good as I should
Maybe I didn’t love you
quite as often as I could
Maybe I didn’t hold you
all those lonely, lonely times
and I guess I never told you
I’m so happy that you’re mine
Maybe I didn’t love you

    This is an interesting take of Willie Nelson’s song. The video was quite amusing.

      A very upbeat version, and very 80s of course. Check out the jazz version by Michael Buble too.

      There is a jazz version too by Michael Buble. But I think I like Pet Shop Boys’ version the best. Very upbeat.

  3. The man in this song admits that he didn’t always do the things he should have to show appreciation for his lady, but he never stopped thinking about her. Nice choice Erlyn Olivia and thanks for sharing your music.

      You’re right, Christine. There are many versions of this song. They are all enjoyable in their own way. A classic song to me.
