" out of sight, out of mind" in lyrics

The saying goes, 'out of sight, out of mind'
But I cannot fathom that notion
Because I will go on being a slave
To the whims of your heart
You knew how to clear up my thoughts
You gave me the truth that I had dreamed about

Luis Miguel - The Boat

Out of sight,
Out of mind...
Out of time
To decide.
Do we run?
Should I hide?

t.A.T.u. - 30 Minutes

You tell me: out of sight, out of mind
You tell that we forget the best
Despite the horizons,
I know she still loves me
This girl I had nicknamed:

Danyel Gérard - Butterfly

I saw you walk down the street
With some other girl
Always thought that I was the only one in your world
Baby can you tell me so
Out of sight out of mind ain't what love ought to be
And I hoped all the time that you'd be faithful to me

Vanessa Paradis - Be My Baby

Here's the thing, we started out friends
It was cool, but it was all pretend
Yeah, yeah, since you been gone

You're dedicated, you took the time
Wasn't long till I called you mine

Kelly Clarkson - Since U Been Gone

To sum it up, I'm presumed guilty
I'm writing to you with your photo on the table
Whenever I talk about the best times we lived
My fellow prisoners tell me, "out of sight, out of mind"

(chorus x2)

- Out of sight, out of mind

So how did you like Mars
The other side on the end of the world
Limit experiences at frontiers
I want you to tell me everything
I know it's not easy
Maybe we come from the same place

Madsen - Great that you are here again

You can hear me, I don't know what to tell you except I suffer
Except I feel stifled, trying in vain to get my second wind
You know, thays are too long without you and yeah, I want you next to me
It's true, we're out of sight, out of mind, your mail give me strength and warmth
my baby, my love, everyday desires help me make it through the days, behind the iron gates of this universe
I picture you here, lonely, in this yard, captive, with no way out, nobody hears your SOS

Kenza Farah - Tell me

Do you remember 10,000 hands at Elektrofaust*, suddenly backpackers play ghetto sounds
Yeah, suddenly the whole scene wanted to be G's and every rapper wanted to rhyme on Bushido's beats
I was wondering, I wanted a Track and you said it wouldn't work out because Aggro* gives a shit about Bunker
I was as sad as a little kid, it was unbelievable and it's true what they say: out of sight, out of mind
We didn't see each other for 2 years, then I came to Cologne to German Dream* but everything seemed clouded
Eko* didn't have the money to publish me, I lived like a bum, this dream makes you blind

Kay One - Bushido*

Start all over again? Explore a strange world?
Endure words, only read them in my thoughts?
Im sitting alone, dreaming awake in imagination

So many wishes I wish I could fulfill for all of them there
Should I say them loud? Don't wanna be ridiculous

Ewa Farna - Rain

You can't feel the heat until you hold your hand over the flame
You have to cross the line just to remember where it lays
You won't know your worth now, son, until you take a hit
And you won't find the beat until you lose yourself in it

That's why we won't back down

Rise Against - Satellite

I'm feeling out of bounds
Out of bounds
I'm running out of time
Out of time
I know there's no such thing
As either of them

Incubus - Adolescents

How long do I have to wait
To having you here with me
Under the Moonlight
Kiss your olive skin

How many years are to come?

Guarana - Night Awaken

Out of sight, out of mind,
We get used to anything,
But there are pains as such
That we keep them inside forever.
It's mad how much I've grown
And went on without you.

Amel Bent - Song For Daddy

If the pillow could talk
If the walls could talk (Mist A!)
What would be of me? Oh no! (Senor F!)
What would be of me? Oh no! (We back)
If the pillow could talk
If the walls could talk

Alexis Y Fido - Eyes That Can Not See

Give me a mic, Germany and, as long as I’m standing,
I’ll show you how it’s done
Just give me a song, Germany, and I’ll write you
10,000 hits; go out and fuck

I’ll write a hit for every bum out there

Bushido - Give Me a Mic, Germany

The sun which rises
And carresses the roof
And it’s Paris by day
The Seine which take a walk
And points me the way
And it’s Paris always

I'm crying your name
My lungs burning up
I'm drowning in noise
I've had enough

'Cause nothing's going like I've planned

Rasmus Nielsen - Sidetrack

Uncomfortable silence
I'll kill it if you want me to
I'm like ultra-violence
I'll kill it if you want me to
Out of sight, out of mind
I'm not the hurting kind

Green Day - Stop When The Red Light Flash

The street is cold - my heart is heavy
I run aimlessly to and fro
What, when to do - and how to begin?
You're no longer out of sight, out of mind
Constantly wondering:
"What would happen if I told you,

[Verse 1:]
Tonight's the night, the mood is right
Anything I choose he buys
I observe by his shoes and ties
He prefer the exclusive kind
Converse over booze and wine

We wanted to contort ourselves
Searched for syllables, for notes
Wandered off into distant worlds
What we were looking for was already there

We lost track of our goals

We can't be oblivious
We are not ignorant

Blood in our hearts
Blood on our hands

So now you're running
It's hard to see clearly
When I make you angry
You're stuck in the past
And now you're screaming
So can you forgive me?

I'd like to ask you a question
Hold the steering wheel for a sec...

Is the moon really there when no one looks up at the sky at night?
Did I really kill the child?

Is to tell myself that you return.

There are plenty of other potential partners [one is lost, 10 are found]
And out of sight, out of mind
But I don't want to forget you
Because my heart is a watch that's always giving the right time

Jacques Dutronc - Proverbs

I have no sorrow, I have no love
And this way I don't suffer from unpleasantness
With the entire world I hold hands
Since I don't play, I don't win or lose

I don't have much, and I don't have little

Shown up right on time

I would have given you it all

Oh, out of sight, out of mind
It doesn't mean you're not mine
The feeling goes on and on and on

The xx - Unfold

What happens to all the love of a love story?
What happens to all the warmth of a love story?

Out of mind.

A little dies.

Yes I know, I know, there's no one else for me
Yes I know, I know, there's no one else for me
Yes I know

Steve Lawrence - Yet I Know (Et pourtant)

So fresh
Ah man this is my joint (same as I ever been)
When I put this joint on, every time I wake up (same as I ever been)
Whatever I went through the day before or the night before (same as I ever been)
Just like wash away, you know?

Talib Kweli - My Favorite Song

I can't wait to see your brilliant face
Light up the room around the pillowcase
She said, "Can you come over to my LA place?
I got something to tell you and it just can't wait."
When I showed up you held the door in tears
Sat on the couch under the chandeliers.

Brace yourself, let it flow

Dancin' till the dawn

You were my friend with you
It always felt so right
We knew each other from the hood

Will it ever stop?
How will this all play out
Out of sight, out of mind

Out of joint, out of true,
out of love, out of the blue,
out of order, out of orbit, out of control,
out of touch, out of line,
out of sync and out of time,
out of gas, out of tread, out of road.

Peter Hammill - A Way Out

I know that absence might
Make the heart grow fonder
Or is it "out of sight,
out of mind" I wonder
And do you yearn for me
When the nights grow cold?

Sometimes you have to let go
To free fall away
I won't judge you anymore
'Cause sometimes I needed to
Free fall far away
Out of sight, out of mind

when it blinds you see 'em?
to rewind those nights
when my heart kept racing

out of mind

out of mind,"
As if it were only a year
Of no love
