"Simple" as written by and Glen Phillips....
I’m complication, live wire down
I’m agitation, distorted sound
You’re celebration, a girl on a swing
Passion and patience, an unbroken ring
It’s simple, simple, simple
You’re simply all I need

I’m jagged rock, you waterfall
Your gentle touch, you wear me down
Till I am smooth, till I allow
Till I can bend, until I bow
It’s simple, simple, simple
You’re simply all I need

I’m jagged rock, you waterfall
Your gentle touch, you wear me down
Twilight sleep
I want to forget everything
These last years
Tear them away
I want to be simple again
Simple, simple, simple
You’re simply all I need
Simple
You’re simply all I need

    General CommentI think this is about life and marriage in particular getting complicated to the point where it is no longer simple as it was in the beginning. When it comes down to it "You’re simply all I need "
