Miles Davis – It Never Entered My Mind lyrics

Once I laughed when I heard you saying
That I'd be playing solitaire
Uneasy in my easy chair
It never entered my mind.

And once you told me I was mistaken
That I'd awaken with the sun
And ordered orange juice for one.
It never entered my mind.

You had what I lack, myself
Now I even have to scratch my back myself.

Once you warned me that if you scorned me,
I'd say the maiden's prayer again
And wish that you were there again
To get into my hair again.
It never entered my mind.

It never entered my mind.

    This song is so amazinly nostalgic. It prompts the listener to recall missed opportunities to celebrate the loves of ones life. It is not at all a sad song because it brings back such wonderful memories. I couls listen to this song forever. Not sure if we will ever see the level of innovation meeting skillfull ability in jazz like we experience with the legends like miles, coltrane, bill evans, red garland, monk, parker, rollins, . Exceptional.
