​As Long As I've Got You

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album In The Quiet Corners Of My Mind (1969).

Every day I'm hearing things that shouldn't be,
Seeing things around me that I shouldn't see,
Seems to me the world's a funny place,
A smile upon a face,
Can hide a friend or an enemy.

People run around trying to get everything,
Tryin' like mad not to miss out on anything,
But the things that are going on,
Are of little interest to me.

As long as I've got you, Girl,
As long as I've got you, Girl,
I know when I've got you,
Your tender love is all I need to see me through.

Doesn't really matter if you're rich or not,
They only seem to notice what you haven't got,
Seems to me that life has changed its pace,
It's turned into a race,
It's not the simple thing it ought to be, so,

Let them run around trying to get everything,
Let them do their best not to miss out on anything,
The things that are going on are of little interest to me.
