The Weepies Simple Life

Can I get up in the moming

Put the kettle on

Make us some coffee, say “hey” to the sun…

Is it enough to write a song and sing it to the birds?

They’d hear just the tune

Not understand my love for words

But you would hear me and know

I want only this, I want to live

I want to live a simple life.

I dreamed you first

But not so real

And everyday since I’ve found you

Such moments we steal

Like little thieves, we rub our hands

We hold our hearts between them.

But will you hear me and know?

I want only this, I want to live

I want to live a simple life.

Move on, move on

Time is accelerating.

Drive on all night

Traffic lights and one-ways.

Move on, move on

Parking violations waiting

Turn off the car, breathe the air

Let’s stay here.

I’ll kiss you awake, and we’ll have time

To know our neighbors all by name

And every star at night.

We’ll weave our days together like waves

And particles of light.

I want only this, I want to live

I want to live a simple life.
