If I was a simple man,
Would we still walk hand in hand?
And if I suddenly went blind,
Would you still look in my eyes?
What happens when I grow old?
And all my stories have been told?
Will your heart still race for me?
Or will it march to a new beat?
If I was a simple man

If I was a simple man,
I’d own no home, I’d own no land
Would you still stand by my side?
And would our flame still burn so bright?

Sometimes I wonder why,
I’m so full of these endless rhymes
About the way I feel inside
I wish I could just get a ride

If I was a simple man
And I could make you understand
There’d be no reason to think twice
You’d be my sun; you’d be my light
If I was a simple man…
If I was a simple man…

Sometimes I wonder why
I’m so full of these endless rhymes
About the way I feel inside
I wish…
Sometimes… (x 12)

    General CommentI guess in this song, Dallas is asking a girlfriend would she still be with him if all the things listed happened, or if he were all the things he suggests. He could possibly even be asking fans that 'love' his that if he weren't in a band, would they feel the same way about him. And also, he's asking how he comes up with all the lyrics that he writes.

    General CommentDallas a fairly famous person and talented at that. He is just asking-wheather it be a girl friend, friend, fans- if you would still feel the same way about him if he didn't have the fame. Maybe it's even more than just the fame.

    General CommentI'm confused.
    Not many people comment on Dallas Green lyrics, his writing ability...amazing.

    He writes from the heart and his voice...he sends shivers down my spine, his voice is so powerful.

    This song is obviously about about a relationship he is in, and he's asking the girl, "If I wasn't so talented, rich and famous, would you still be there?"

    General CommentI agree with you all... but in a way.. hes trying to show how he really feels.... maybe he wont never be able to hadle a relationship... he migh be somehow confused of what he really wants... too bad that the other half wont wait for so long....
