Wrong Thinking

This song is by Gerry Rafferty and appears on the album Over My Head (1994).

Is this a state that you can't control
Or don't you care who you're talking to
Each time when things get out of hand
Why it's the same thing you always do
You start to point out other people's mistakes
Sometimes you even show contempt
How come the way you exclude yourself
Can't you see that you're not exempt?

Wrong thinking gets the better of you
It only takes a moment or two
Comes stealin' like a thief in the night
Changes every little thing in sight
Wrong thinking gets the better of you.

Well it's the same old thing that happens
Every time you react that way
Tomorrow you'll want to forget
Everything you said today
But every time something reminds you
You play the same old game inside
Any excuse in the book will do
Everything can be justified.

Wrong thinking gets the better of you
It only takes a moment or two
Comes stealin' like a thief in the night
Changes every little thing in sight
Wrong thinking gets the better of you
Better of you. Gets the better of you.
