What Were You Thinking
Words and Music by Dave Laurence • From the album Every Lonesome Road

What were you thinking
when you woke up in my arms for the first time? (Oh yeah)
And what were you thinking
When you looked into my eyes and saw the sunrise?
Did it make you realize what I've tried to say so long,
The distance makes me weak, but you keep me strong.
Every day apart, no matter how I miss you,
You smile at me, and I just can't resist you.
What were you thinking when you woke up in my arms?
 
What were you thinking
when I told you I'd be leaving on the morrow? (Oh no)
And what were you thinking
When I said to keep my heart safe and protected?
Did you think I'd throw away everything you gave to me,
When my heart was wrapped in chains, you set it free.
So keep it here with you, no matter where you roam,
'cause anywhere you are, I wanna call it home.
What were you thinking when I told you I'd be leaving?
 
You and me, we've got a history
of walking when we oughta run
But it can be, I'm gonna make you see,
As long as I'm your only one.
 
You know what I'm thinking,
I wanna keep you 'round for a long time. (I do)
That's what I was thinking
When I took you in my arms for the first time.
No matter what happens, when it comes down to our hearts,
The love we have is greater than the sum of all the parts.
You may have thought you had me wrapped around your finger,
Well look down at your hand, then look up at the singer...
 
See what I'm thinking,
Yes, I'm in love with you.
That's what I'm thinking,
No matter what you do,
So what were you thinking,
when you told me that you loved me too?

When She Wanders In
Words and Music by Dave Laurence • From the album Analog Soul

When she wanders in, my head starts turning,
Just like it always used to do.
When she wanders in, my soul starts burning,
and I don’t know just what to do.
The answer should be easy,
she’s not mine anymore,
But the way she speaks when she calls my name,
I’m never really sure.
 
When she wanders in, my hands start shaking,
But I can’t really tell you why.
When she wanders in, my heart starts aching,
Just like the night we said goodbye.
I remember how it ended,
and old wounds open wide,
Then I see her face, and old feelings race,
that can’t be justified.
 
I wonder what would happen
if we had another try,
Would I be fool enough to forgive and forget,
or fool enough to fly?
 
When she wanders in, my heart stops beating
Just for a moment or two.
When she wanders in, my feet start retreating,
and all at once I have a clue.
Where once I used to wonder,
there’s no longer any doubt,
So I smile at her and I say hello,
then I turn and wander out.
 
When she wanders in, I lose my cool
When she wanders in, Lord, I’m just a fool,
When she wanders in.
