​In The Quiet Corners Of My Mind

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

The bird of youth had sung so sweetly by my side,
Then spread its wings to fly away,
And chase my footsteps down some old familiar road,
And trace the friends of yesterday.

Those strange bewildered songs that crept into my heart,
With just the mention of her name,
That first impatient love grew wild in me,
And left as quickly as it came.

In the quiet corners of my mind,
These are things I see,
In the quiet corners of my mind,
The treasured moments of my life,
Wait for me.

The city lights had shone much brighter for me then,
They drew me there to chase my dreams,
To find the world that I depended on,
Was not exactly what it seemed.

In the quiet corners of my mind,
These are things I see,
In the quiet corners of my mind,
The sadder moments of my life,
Wait for me.

I see a wiser man who realised at last,
That life held things that matter more,
Than all the riches I had once desired,
And all the dreams I'd waited for.

In the quiet corners of my mind,
These are things I see,
In the quiet corners of my mind,
The bitter sweetness of my life,
Waits for me.
