Information

  • This song is a cover of the ballad written by Mark James, Wayne Thompson & John Christopher Jr.. It is famously known for its cover versions by Elvis, the Pet Shop Boys and Willie Nelson.[1]
  • This song features Till Lindemann.
  • Ten years prior, Richard was asked by the label to contribute to a cover album. He chose this song as it was apparently the only one that was left.[2] The cover album eventually got canceled, but he kept the song since he had already done a lot of work on it. Richard, being impressed by Elvis' one-take vocal delivery, also planned to use the said vocal take and release that version of the song on the album Silent So Long.[3] But due to copyright reasons, Richard was not allowed to use Elvis' vocals. Richard began to think who also had a powerful voice like Elvis. His first thought was about doing the song with Iggy Pop. The idea of recording the song with Till came very late.[4].[5]
  • The drums on this song were played by Mikko Sirén.

Lyrics

Album version

1, 2, 3 yeah

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

(Mhm, yeah right)

Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine, ja
If I made you feel second best
Es tut mir leid, I was blind

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me
Tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me
One more chance to keep you satisfied
Satisfied

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

Tell me
Tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me
One more chance to keep you satisfied
Satisfied

I'll call you
