[VERSE]
      Bb/C                      C
I was making my way through the wasteland
    Bb/C                  C
The road into town passes through
      Bb/C               C
I was changing the radio stations
        Bb/C          C
With my mind on you


[VERSE]
         Bb/C                     C
Oh, your friends call you 'Lily Paloma'
    Bb/C                        C
But that's not the way that you are
         Bb/C                C
It's too much of a gentle misnomer
      Bb             C
For a shooting star


[BRIDGE]
    F
But you and me, baby
          C                F     C
I saw you there, straight away I knew
        F
There's really no hiding
                 C              F     C
I tell you right now what we're gonna do
Eb                      F
We'll go collecting the days
Ab                   G
Putting the moments away


[CHORUS]
Bb            C
 You're on my mind
                  | Bb/C | C |
Like a song on the radio
Bb            C
 You're on my mind
                  | Bb/C | C |
Like a song on the radio

[VERSE]
    Bb/C                    C
I remember the first time I saw you
 Bb/C                     C
Alone in the dark, with a drink
       Bb/C                   C
With a candle flame burning before you
         Bb/C                 C
And your thoughts closed in


[VERSE]
         Bb/C                 C
You were staring out into the distance
    Bb/C                   C
Not seeming to hear what I said
    Bb/C                  C
Why did you put up such resistance
             Bb               C
Like all the lights were red


[BRIDGE]
    F
But you and me, baby
          C                F     C
I saw you there, straight away I knew
        F
There's really no hiding
                 C              F     C
I tell you right now what we're gonna do
Eb                      F
We'll go collecting the days
Ab                   G
Putting the moments away


[CHORUS]
Bb            C
 You're on my mind
                  | Bb/C | C |
Like a song on the radio
Bb            C
 You're on my mind
                  | Bb/C | C |
Like a song on the radio

[VERSE]
        Bb/C                      C
I don't know what it was that was painful
    Bb/C                         C
But sometimes it's there in your face
          Bb/C                        C
There are times when you just look disdainful
       Bb/C        C
Of the human race



[VERSE]
        Bb/C                  C
Ah, but then on the wings of emotion
   Bb/C                 C
We circle each other in flight
       Bb/C                    C
Till together we roll like the ocean
       Bb              C
In its bed at night


[BRIDGE]
    F
But you and me, baby
          C                F     C
I saw you there, straight away I knew
        F
There's really no hiding
                 C              F     C
I tell you right now what we're gonna do
Eb                      F
We'll go collecting the days
Ab                   G
Putting the moments away

Bb            C
 You're on my mind

Bb            C
 You're on my mind
                  | Bb/C | C |
Like a song on the radio


[OUTRO]
    Bb/C   C
Oh, woah 
            Bb/C   C
Song on the radio
    Bb/C   C
Oh, woah 
            Bb/C   C
Song on the radio
