I Bumped Into You


Goin’ through my head
Before I closed my eyes
To fall asleep in my bed
When out of the darkness
Jumped a surprise


Forgot the thought goodbye
Years ago we were through
But just before I closed my eyes
I bumped into you


You ever lay there
In the dark thinkin’


Wish I could send you
Last thought of night
Memri’ before you wake
Together as one
Before mornin’ light


Forgot the thought goodbye
Years ago we were through
But just before I closed my eyes
I bumped into you


Phillip Brown
