Waltzing Through my Mind


Who gave you permission to keep hanging round my brain,

Stirring up those feelings that I thought I'd put away.

Giving me a reason to meet the coming day,

Yea, who gave you permission to keep hanging round my brain.


A little candle light and a little glass of wine,

Just a friendly gesture to help us pass the time.

Music on the stereo we thought would feel so fine,

But who gave you permission to keep waltzing through my mind.


The nights are short, the days are long and I have to compete.

With all those other dreamers rolling down life's busy streets.

It's three A.M. I'm awake, wishing you were here.

'Cause every time I close my eyes, you're whispering in my ear.


So who gave you permission to keep hanging round my brain.

Messing with these feelings that I thought I'd put away.

Giving me a reason to greet the coming day,

Yea, who gave you permission to keep hanging 'round my brain.


Well now your here I might as well relax and let you stay.

'Cause there ain't nothing I can do to chase these thoughts away.

I'll close my eyes, get some sleep life can be so kind.

And you've got my permission to keep waltzing through my mind.


Yea you've got my permission to keep hanging round my mind.

Stirring brand new feelings that'll never go away.

Giving me a reason to meet the coming day,

Oh, you've got my permission to keep waltzing through my brain.
