Roy Clark – Love Is Just A State Of Mind lyrics

I'll stay with you if you say stay
But I must leave you when I must
I'll stay as long as we can last
And leave when laughter turns to rust.

The day the fireworks fail to flash
And mental light refuse to shine
We'll know it's time for someone else
For love is just a state of mind.

If you can say it like it is
And if I like to hear it said
I'll carve your image on my heart
And make sure that your soul is fed.

But one day the words break step
And if one ego lags behind
You column left, I'll column right
For love is just a state of mind.

Keep yourself but give me room
I want some place to think aloud
And if you can your chain will reach
From ocean floor to shining cloud.

When the shackles feel too tight
Or when restrictions start to blind
It's time to breathe instead of choke
For love is just a state of mind.

If my words are worry things
And if I make your mouth turn down
Then take your apprehensive love
And leave me now without a sound.

But if you take me as I am
And love me one day at a time
I may stay a thousand years
For love is just a state of mind.

For love is just a state of mind...
