Think Too Much

ŠPaul Simon, released on Hearts and Bones, 1983

.

They say that the left side of the brain

Controls the right

They say that the right side

Has to work hard all night

Maybe I think too much for my own good

Some people say so

Other people say no no

The fact is

You don't think as much as you could

hmmm

I had a childhood that was mercifully brief

I grew up in a state of disbelief

I started to think too much

When I was twelve going on thirteen

Me and the girls from St. Augustine

Up in the mezzanine

Thinking about God

Maybe I think too much

Maybe I think too much

Maybe I think too much

Maybe I think too much

Have you ever experienced a period of grace

When your brain just takes a seat behind your face

And the world begins The Elephant Dance

Everything's funny

Everyone's sunny

You take out your money

And walk down the road

That leads me to the girl I love

The girl I'm always thinking of

But maybe I think too much

And I ought to just hold her

Stop trying to mold her

Maybe blindfold her

And take her away

Maybe I think too much

Maybe I think too much

Maybe I think too much

Maybe I think too much
