"Simple And Clean" as written by and Hikaru Utada....
When you walk away
You don't hear me say please
Oh baby, don't go
Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight
It's hard to let it go

You're giving me too many things
Lately you're all I need
You smiled at me and said,

Don't get me wrong I love you
But does that mean I have to meet your father?
When we are older you'll understand
What I meant when I said no,
I don't think life is quite that simple

When you walk away
You don't hear me say please
Oh baby, don't go
Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight
It's hard to let it go

(So simple and clean, baby)

The daily things
(like this and that and what, what)
That keep us all busy
All confusing me
That's when you came to me and said,

Wish I could prove I love you
But does that mean I have to walk on water?
When we are older you'll understand
It's enough when I say so,
And maybe somethings are that simple

When you walk away
You don't hear me say please
Oh baby, don't go
Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight
It's hard to let it go

Hold me
Whatever lies beyond this morning
Is a little later on
Regardless of warnings the future doesn't scare me at all
Nothing's like before

When you walk away
You don't hear me say please
Oh baby, don't go
Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight
It's hard to let it go

Hold me
Whatever lies beyond this morning
Is a little later on
Regardless of warnings the future doesn't scare me at all
Nothing's like before

Hold me
Whatever lies beyond this morning
Is a little later on
Regardless of warnings the future doesn't scare me at all
Nothing's like before

    General CommentIn response to the above, I don't think she was too demanding at all. Maybe the guy THINKS she's too demanding, but in reality I think he's the one who is making things overly complicated.

    "You're giving me too many things" - he's showering her with presents, but all she wants is to be with him. "Don't get me wrong, I love you, but does that mean I have to meet your father?" She's just enjoying being with him, but he's already worrying about things like meeting her dad instead of enjoying her company too. In his mind, you meet someone, you pursue a relationship, you meet their parents and then marriage, but as she says life isn't that simple. But because she doesn't want presents and she's not worrying about him meeting her dad, he doesn't know how to prove his love for her. He thinks she's being demanding and that she wants him to walk on water, but that's not it. But in asking her these questions, he's not really proving his love for her at all, just worrying, so she says "it's enough when I say so."

    "Hold me
    Whatever lies beyond this morning
    Is a little later on
    Regardless of warnings the future doesn't scare me at all
    Nothing's like before "

    Again, she's not worried about what's in store for them later (whereas he probably is.) She's just happy in the moment and wants to be held.

    General CommentI am normally a pretty much punk and metal only type of person, but when i hear this song, i can feel my soul being torn to shreds. It makes me think of my far off love, and then of why i lover her so much. This song is definatly one makes me smile in a sad sort of way.
