​State Of Mind

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

Yes there was a time,
I thought that love was something deep inside,
Something more or less within ourselves,
That couldn't be denied,
And I thought anything could happen,
Our tomorrows could be gone,
But the feelings deep inside us would go on.

I suppose I must have heard the tale,
A thousand times before,
Of this love that comes to each of us,
To last forever more,
And so it's really no surprise,
After hearing how it ought to be,
That I really thought you'd go on wanting me.

Now I see your love was just a game,
I'll go on living just the same,
There's nothing else for me to do,
Now I'll have the sense to save my time,
I'll leave my foolish days behind,
'Cause loving you has made me wiser,
Made me stop to realise, and,
Now I see it very clearly,
Love is just a state of mind.

I used to think I'd always have you standing by my side,
'Cause I thought the feelings in you,
Were too strong to be denied,
And I thought anything could happen,
Our tomorrows could be gone,
But the feelings deep inside us would go on.

Now I see your love was just a lie,
I'll go on living till I die,
Perhaps I'll even get to like it,
Now I'll light my lamp and drink my wine,
I'll leave my foolish days behind,
'Cause loving you has made me wiser,
Made me stop to realise, and,
Now I see it very clearly,
Love is just a state of mind.

Now I see your love was just a game,
I'll go on living just the same,
'Cause loving you has made me wiser,
Made me stop to realise, and,
Now I see it very clearly,
Love is just a state of mind.

Now I know your love was nothing,
But a lie and I'll tell you why,
Now I've got the sense to realise,
What was there before my eyes.
