Distracted

(a song about ADD)

You’re talking to me as I sit here today

But I do not hear any words that you say

It’s not that I don’t want to listen to you

It’s just that my mind is miles away


Preoccupied with what somebody said

I try but I can’t get them out of my head


I’m just distracted (it’s nothing I can control)

Yes I’m distracted (so don’t cast me in the role)

Of a person so simple who hasn’t a clue.

Forgive me I’m not trying to ignore you.


I fidget, I’m restless, I turn in my seat

I’m tapping the floor with the soles of my feet

You ask if I’m nervous, I say “not at all.”

It’s just that I hear another drummer’s beat.


But you are amazed by the things that I said

You wonder at what’s going on in my head


When I’m distracted (are you questioning me?)

Yes I’m distracted (is there more than you see?)

And maybe you’ll teach me a thing or two

But this time around I’m the one teaching you.


I’m not making excuses or looking for pity

I only want you to understand me

Though it may take some time I am willing to wait

After all, I’m the one who’s usually late


When I’m distracted (are you questioning me?)

Yes I’m distracted (is there more than you see?)

And maybe you’ll teach me a thing or two

But this time around I’m the one teaching you.
