A Satisfied Mind

(female half here)

A few years ago, I discovered Jeff Buckley’s music. When the series “Dead Zone” started, the theme music caught my interest as much if not more than the series itself. There was just something about it that struck me. But it was not credited at the end of the show. In searching, I found that it was a Jeff Buckley piece.

Of course, I had to run out and get some of his music. I found the CD “Sketches for My Girlfriend the Drunk”, which contained the song they used as the theme. It also contained the song, “Satisfied Mind” ‒ and those lyrics are so simple and true, I have to share. It says so much about what is important in life, above all else. And also, I think represents well what we all hope to find ……

Satisfied Mind

---Jeff Buckley

(J.Hayes/J.Rhodes)

How many times have you heard someone say,
"If I had money, I would do things my way."
But little they know, that it's so hard to find
one rich man in ten, with a satisfied mind.

money can't buy back all your youth when you're old,
a friend when you're lonely, or peace to your soul.
The wealthiest person, is a pauper at times
compared to the man with a satisfied mind.

When my life is over and my time has run out,
my friends and my loved ones, I will leave there's no doubt.
But one thing's for certain, when it comes my time,
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind.
But one thing's for certain, when it comes my time,
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind mind mind, mind mind,
satisfied mind.
