Just thinking

Ah wis jist thinking
But then ah hid tae stoap
Ah wis jist thinking
Ah dae that an awfie lot
Ah wis jist thinking
Whilst staring intae space
Ah wis jist thinking
Ahm an awfie case
Ah maybe shouldnae think
But dont know whit tae dae
Ah maybe shouldnae think
Ah wont know whit tae say
So whits the point in thinking
If it just wastes ma day

Ahm gonnae stoap thinking
an get oan wi ma life
Ahm gonnae stoap thinking
It might help wae ma wife
Ahm gonnae stoap thinking
An see where it mibbe lead
Ahm gonnae stoap thinking
An try an keep the heid

Alternatively, you can visit the Media Links page and see a short visit done by BBC Radio Scotland for an interview I did there.
