The Lyrics:

SENTIMENTAL STATE OF MIND (by Dani) © Dani Lindroos 2014

Sentimental state of mind, I´m in a sentimental state of mind
´cause you´re gone, gone, gone away, I was left here behind
darling don´t know about you, but I miss you so and you know that´s true
sittin´here alone longin´for you, just for you !

You were always very kind darling, you were always very kind
that is why, why you´re on my mind, always on my mind
though you´re nowhere to find
so I´m yearnin ´all the time, yearnin´all the time, yearnin´all the time for you !

Sentimental state of mind, I´m in a sentimental state of mind
´cause you´re gone, gone, gone away, I was left here behind
dreamin´ dreamin´ alone, was it really that wrong
I think I´ll put it all down in my song, in my song

You were always very kind darling, you were always very kind
that is why, why you´re on my mind, always on my mind
though you´re nowhere to find
so I´m yearnin ´all the time, yearnin´all the time, yearnin´all the time for you
so I´m yearnin ´all the time, yearnin ´all the time, yearnin ´all the time for you
I´m in a sentimental state of mind………….

Cheers
Dani

Woooo. On this one Dani, I can close my eyes and I'm setting in a dark restaurant, my lady dressed in red, roses on a white table cloth, wine glasses - Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall come in through the front double doors ......

Cool stuff here on this song. Enjoyed it from start to finish.

Hi Dani
I have also been away for a while but hoping to catch up on some good listening. This was indeed a good laid back start. Hope your barbershop project goes well...

Hi, Charlie !:))


You are always so kind
Charlie ! :)) Maybe we´ve
both been there - in the dark
restaurant I mean - a good
description of the intended
mood ! Much obliged Charlie !!:))


Cheers

Hi, Mike !:))


I am truly glad this tune
made a pleasant surprise
for you ! :)) I know you like
jazzier music and I really wanted
to catch the mood of the
song - don´t sure if I managed
to do it, though - but at least
I tried my best !:))

Cheers
Dani

Hi, Guenter !:))


You are too kind as always
but I am truly glad if you
liked the tune even without
any harmony ! I did ponder on
putting some in at places but
I refrained from it as I
wanted to depict a lone jazz singer
singing in all by himself for
a few couples in a dark restaurant
(LOL) !!!:))

Cheers
Dani

Well, Rob and Anne-Marie !:))


This may be outside the
box, but sometimes it just
feels good to be there !:))
I love to sing jazz though
I´m not doin´it right ! (LOL)!
I should use less vibrato and
sing over the bars more than I do,
but nonetheless, I do thank
you for your kind comments !

Cheers
Dani

Hi, Josie !:))

....and thank you
for your most kind
words and well wishes !:))
I also hope that our preps
will work out well. I´ve
heard that we are expecting at
least two barbershop choruses
from Sweden, so it will be
a "helluva" singing weekend
with lots of groups ringing chords
all around !:))

Cheers
Dani
