State Of Mind

you almost didn't come in time
you almost didn't raise the blind
you almost left me in the dark
but almost is a state of mind
state of mind

we almost lost our masterpiece
we almost left the work unsigned
we almost left an empty canvas
but almost is a state of mind
state of mind

without a moment's hesitation
strip off the uncertainty
it's off the deep end
to be free

I almost stripped the threads of fortune
I almost let this coil unwind
I almost crossed the wires of circumstance
but almost is a state of mind
state of mind
