Last Thing On My Mind Is Regret

Words and Music by Phil Odgers


If I could write a song for you

make every wrong right for you

If I could write a tune that would change the world

If I put pen to paper now,

not save it for later

If I could pass this test I’d fix this mess


But I sit here crack another beer, I ponder and I fret

I write these words, cross them out again, light another cigarette

I know that all the good things in my head I’m going to forget

and the last thing on my mind --- is regret


I took all those golden years from you

blood and sweat and tears from you

Your ma was right when she first clapped eyes me

Cos, she said I wasn’t right for you

you weren’t right for me she knew

But somehow, we saw it through


But I sit here crack another beer, I ponder and I fret

I write these words, cross them out again, light another cigarette

I know that all the good things in my head I’m going to forget

and the last thing on my mind --- is regret


If I could write a song for you

make every wrong right for you

If I could write a tune that would change the world

If I put pen to paper now,

not save it for later

Now if I could pass this test I’d fix this mess


But I sit here crack another beer, I ponder and I fret

Write these words, and I cross em out again, light another cigarette

I know that all the good things in my head I never will forget

and the last thing on my mind is regret
