Electric Light Orchestra - State Of Mind Lyrics




I was goin' round the world
I was lookin' for somewhere
I was searchin' for someone
Who was gonna take me there

Didn't want to do it 'cause I knew what I'd find
Your're Really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

I was thinkin' of the past
I was tryin' to rack my brain
I was looking at the future, looking at the future
I was tryin' to play the game

Didn't want to do it 'cause I knew what I'd find
You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

Sometimes you get lost
Sometimes you get found
In a state of mind
Sometimes you're too high
Sometimes you're too down
It's just a state of mind

Didn't want to do it 'cause I knew what I'd find
You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

Sometimes you get lost
Sometimes you get found
In a state of mind
Sometimes you're too high
Sometimes you're too down
It's just a state of mind

You think you know it all
Then you think that you know nothing
Can't dance, can't crawl, crawl
Maybe you better forget it

Didn't want to do it 'cause I knew what I'd find
You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

Didn't want to it 'cause I knew what I'd find
You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

Didn't want to it 'cause I knew what I'd find
You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

State of mind
It's a state of mind
State of mind
State of mind
State of mind
State of mind

Electric Light Orchestra State Of Mind Comments
  1. John Gowan

    Sometimes we get doing things that we cannot face the fact the times it’s a state of mind to me

  2. Peter Wesley Bastone

    Great song...shared to the Netshows Radio "Program 76" Playlist on youtube

  3. GA Duncan

    I love ELO Flashback,so I definitely like Zoom

  4. David Haney

    Man i love this song !!!!

  5. Godigentil97

    Kinda sounds like ghost buster theme at times.

  6. imjoeimjoe

    I hear a GLORIA/PETTY WOMAN thing going on

  7. Matthew Johnson

    Jeff didn't play a single tune from this or Time during his recent tour. In fact, didn't even play Do Ya! He's got so many good songs to choose from - only solution is ... Longer Concerts please!

    Gianni Cavallo

    great album I wish you would have done stranger on a quiet street

    John James

    Matthew Johnson coool dude comet Rock on bro

  8. Mario alberto Domínguez Acosta

    gran Maestro del Rock.
    Jeff Lynne el mas grande de todos los tiempos...

    Pablo Nisero

    Sino es el mas grande pasa raspando jajajaja :)

  9. Kelly02895

    Jeff Lynne....prime example as to why the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a sham.

    Mutt1961

    @Kelly02895 Couldn't agree more. Since sheer stupidity is so hard to understand, let's all not bother and just feel sorry for them instead... ;)

    Miguel Costa Brito

    He is now

    Jeff Dwyer

    The Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame is a joke! Rock'n'Roll is rebellion, not tuxedos and pomp and circumstances.

  10. Darticus the Great

    @kaledmasterme You don't think they did as well with this album? I think Zoom has some of their best songs!

    Darticus the Great

    +Darticus the Great Well, maybe not their best, but I think it's still rockin' :P

    prehistoric pigeon

    Darticus the Great I agree

  11. livpool Smith

    More than a hint of Pretty Woman about that riff.

    livpool Smith

    @waco nato I don't know that tune.

    1stSaintsFan

    @Volker Paulsen Me too!!! Netflix has a DVD on Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers with some cool footage & comments of his "Willbury" days and working with Jeff Lynne in the studio.

    Mark Anthony Lee

    I was goin' 'round the world
    I was looking for somewhere
    I was searchin' for someone
    Who was gonna take me there

    Didn't want to do it, 'cause I knew what I'd find
    You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

    I was thinkin' of the past
    I was tryin' to wrack my brain
    I was looking at the future
    I was trying to play the game

    Didn't want to do it, 'cause I knew what I'd find
    You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

    Sometimes you get lost
    Sometimes you get found
    In a state of mind
    Sometimes you're too high
    Sometimes you're too down
    It's just a state of mind

    Didn't want to do it, 'cause I knew what I'd find
    You're really only livin' in a state of mind, yeah

    Kent Brannon

    And take a listen to ELO's "State of Mind"

    Sarah Kinsey

    I saw him live this past summer, and he played Handle With Care with Dhani singing George's parts. I almost cried! I'm glad that Jeff is still thinking about his friends

  12. John Howell

    Ten years old and this album is still great -- every song a keeper! It's too bad the Zoom Tour was cancelled and the sales tanked. I love this album.
