Obsessions – By Jeannie

What’s taken over my mind?
What’s taken over my body?
What’s taken over my sanity?
Where have I gone?

Think, think, think,
just one more time.
Do, do, do,
just one more time.

It hurts me,
it attacks me,
it won’t let me go.
Has a grip around my head,
which gets stronger and stronger,
whilst I get weaker and weaker.

Think, think, think,
just one more time.
Do, do, do,
just one more time.

Just one more time,
just check again.
just one time.
Then another and another and another………

How can I switch my brain off?
How can I stop this torture?
Let me go.
Let me relax.
Show me a way.

This way and that way,
just one more time.
My head is going to explode.
It can’t take any more,
but it just carries on.

Obsessions, compulsions,
the mind is going haywire.
I can’t think properly,
can’t act properly,
something else has taken over.
