Nightingale
Jackson Browne
I'm hangin' on to my peace of mind, I just don't know.
I'm hangin' on to those good times, baby, just want to let them roll.
I'm gonna make it to the light and joy, I'll tell you why:
I got a woman who can take me there, the apple of my eye.

Oo-o-o-oh, I just don't know, no no no no,
no-o-o-oh, I love her so.

Don't let me see that mornin' paper 'cause I don't need those dues.
It's just the same old murder movie but they call it the news.
I tell you what would be some story and what would set me free
is if the's am e thing happened to everybody that just happened to me.

Oo-o-o-oh, I just don't know, no no no no,
no-o-o-oh, I'll never let her go.

And every time I hear somebody sneakin' up behind,
whoa, I turn around but I still hear that sound
and just when I'm abouut to lose my mind

Here comes my baby singin' like a nightingale,
comin' my way down along that devastation trail.
We'll tell the Lord above she's got a brand of love
that cannot fail.

I'm hangin' on to my peace of mind and that's no lie.
I'm hangin' on to my special friend, the apple of my eye,
the apple of my eye, my inspiration too.
She's got a lead on my heart and my soul and she knows just what to do.

O-o-o oo-o-o-oh, I just don't know, no no no no,
no-o-o-oh, I get so low and my mind's about to go
but wait a minute

Here comes my baby singin' like a nightingale,
comin' my way down along that devastation trail.
We'll let the fires burn and let the floods return,
we will prevail

Hangin' on to my peace of mind,
I just don't know.
