Tom Cochrane - Vacation (In My Mind) Lyrics




Taking a vacation
Don't know what I'll find
Taking a vacation in my mind

Taking a vacation
Don't know what I'm gonna find there
Stuck some clothes in a sack
I'm slipping out the back door

Sit by the range
See the splendors of the Bronze Age
I'll be wild eyed and waiting
They got me there and well placed

Where are you
Where you are I will be
I am on a vacation
Only in my mind
Vacation

Taking a vacation
Don't know what I'll find
I'm taking a vacation
I'm self-hypnotized

Blue man swings to the beat
Over there she's got a weapon
We're going to kick it in the sand
Some guys are selling visas
They're trying to sell tickets to the promised land

People going to get there
I see it in my dreams
Saw people dancing, saw people moving
In the hot summer steam

Where you are
Where you are I will be
I am on vacation
Only in my mind
I can see you from here
I am on vacation
Vacation

Taking a vacation
I don't know what I'll find
I'll be taking a vacation
Don't know what we'll find
We're going to discover America
Take a train to Mecca
We'll be lying on the beach there
The old wise fool and me

Where you are
Where you are I will be
I am on vacation only in my mind
I can see you from here
I am on vacation
Where you are I will be
I can see you from here

Taking a vacation
Don't know what I'll find
We're taking a vacation only in our minds
No traffic and noise here, well a word to the wise
There's splendors of the Bronze Age
That's about my favorite drive

  10. Jeremy Romitti

    absolutely love the guitar solo near the end

    Vamsi krishna

    It is frigging amazing! I was riding with me earphones on and suddenly i was vibing crazy when the solo started

  11. pilosopo tasyo

    Someone ruined this song for me and i just wish i could reclaim it back

  12. Chestnut1895

    This song vaguely reminded me of "How Do I Breathe?" by Mario

  13. Kat Cecelia

    If Rex Orange County and Daniel Caesar had a baby

  14. Rax B

  21. Yunichan

    I like u

  22. Bob.e Harrison

    Saw him perform yesterday at Montreux Jazz, never heard him before then but you can bet that I'll be listening to nothing else for the next lifetime or two !

  23. SuYeolYam

    Please come to the Philippines, Tom! :)

  24. cashaiesha

    nice song

  25. Tyler Forest

    Isn't this simply, perfectly and absolutely "LOVELY" ? ...as the native English speaking people say (in a "lovely" way)... In French we do have a lots of thousands words to express things, but there's no equivalent of this one...
    Closest one would be "Adorable", "Amour", "Amoureusement", that would discribe this piece rather well. And would discribe who and what lovely Tom M. is, and gives. Amour to you Tom ;-)

  26. Nafasyah Agustiani

    This song matches what I feel right now. I played this song multiple times. thank you tom!

  27. Albar Juarva

    Playing this song under the night full of stars in Indonesia 🖤

  28. M Stokes

    ♥️♥️😍

  29. Chanelle Scantlebury

    There will never be words to describe how Tom Misch's music makes me feel

  30. Leixa

    listened to this song for the first time on a Wednesday
    listening to this on a Sunday because he's on my mind :/

  31. Teddy Homsy

    Glad this song is not as viral as it should be, so I can keep it to myself

  32. Andy Sanchez

    NOOOOOOOOOO WHERE'S THE ORIGINAL VERSIOIN???????????????

  33. Sweet Tea

    I like this

  34. Elijah Buscho

    Do you every write in the YouTube comments venting about some fucking girl? This fucking girl dude. I feel totally clueless. I feel like I've waited too long, but there's always the what if, you know? What if she's patient? I need a patient girl. Because I'm a fucking idiot. I could just be stupid, but she could be everything I need right now. And it's a decision of whether to let my doubts prevail or take a chance and put myself out there.

  35. 順家順嘎

    太喜歡了 MDFK

  36. Victoria Zimmer

  42. niccolo amarante

    And as the sun goes down
And the stars come out to play
I bet tomorrow I’ll be sleeping
Sleeping all day
And this fire I feel
Why is it burning so slowly?
I can’t stop thinking of you
Like the five pounds you owe me
    'Cause you’re on my mind
'Cause you’re on my mind
You’re all I can find
'Cause you’re on my mind

    niccolo amarante

    Please tell me that you feel the same
That we're on the same train
If you're a little bit late and miss it
That would be a great shame
I miss your sweet, sweet kisses and lovin’
When they were mine
When are you down?
Make sure I’m in town

    niccolo amarante

    All the colours they shine through
Night time, and I’m thinking of you
Each dawn of every day
You’re on my mind

  43. SuYeolYam

    You're On My Mind (Lyrics)

    [Verse 1]
    And as the sun goes down
    And the stars come out to play
    I bet tomorrow I’ll be sleeping
    I’ll be sleeping all day
    And this fire I feel
    Why is it burning so slowly?
    I can’t stop thinking of you
    Like the five pounds you owe me

    [Chorus]
    Cos you’re on my mind
    Cos you’re on my mind
    You’re all I can find
    Cos you’re on my mind

    [Verse 2]
    Please tell me that you feel the same
    That we're on the same train
    If you're a little bit late and miss it
    That would be a great shame
    I miss your sweet, sweet kisses and lovin’
    When they were mine
    When are you down?
    Make sure I’m in town

    [Chorus]
    Cos you’re on my mind
    Cos you’re on my mind
    You’re all I can find
    Cos you’re on my mind
    Cos you’re on my mind
    Cos you’re on my mind
    You’re all I can find
    Cos you’re on my mind

    [Bridge]
    All the colors they shine through
    Night time, and I’m thinking of you
    Each storm of every day
    You’re on my mind

    [Instrumental Solo]

    [Chorus]
    Cos you’re on my mind
    Cos you’re on my mind
    You’re all I can find
    Cos you’re on my mind
    Cos you’re on my mind
    Cos you’re on my mind
    You’re all I can find
    Cos you’re on my mind

    Lost my dad on the 10th of October 2018. We only found his body four days later. I played this song every day while we were searching for him. Couldn't play this song without tearing up. Today is the first day I can bear to listen to this song. Tom thank you for making music that provides an escape for the soul and a platform to fully appreciate life.

  75. { Ashlie }

    For anyone who doesn't know, "On my Mind" was (I believe) the original title that came out in 2015. He had since deleted it from soundcloud and basically most places in around the end of 2016 or early 2017. If you search up the original, you'll be just as pleased. Good sample usage and to this day, I can't pin point why Tom deleted the original.

  76. Esco

    This song is something else. I hope to get married to it, somebody. Better yet, ask Tom to come perform it.

  77. The CastaMan

    i discovered this artist right now. I'm...amazed. This guy needs to be known by the world. Please Tom, you need it.
