Always On My Mind Quotes by Elvis Presley, Anna Journey, Willie Nelson, B. B. King, John Debney and many others.
Maybe I didn’t treat you Quite as good as I should have Maybe I didn’t love you Quite as often as I could have Little things I should have said and done I just never took the time You were always on my mind You were always on my mind
I’m a compulsive enjamber. I’m drawn to half-meanings created by the line, so that’s definitely an element of craft that’s always on my mind. And I’m a big devotee of the short line, of couplets and tercets, and of irregular stanzas with lots of white space. I’ve got to give the dense language room to breathe!
Little things I should have said and done I just never took the time You were always on my mind
I don’t have a favorite song that I’ve written. But I do have a favorite song: ‘Always on My Mind,’ the Willie Nelson version. If I could sing it like he do, I would sing it every night. I like the story it tells.
Melodies and ideas are always on my mind and always coming to me. I’m very thankful for that because if I didn’t have whatever that is, that craziness, that openness, maybe, I don’t think I’d be able to do what I really love to do, which is write great melodies and at least try to write great melodies.
