"Simple As It Should Be" as written by and Harris/prettyman....
Put your hands to my hands
Put your knees to my knees
Put your eyes to my eyes
Come on baby compliment me

'Cause I don't think that we
Should ever feel the need to worry
Ever get ourselves in a hurry
You know I love you
I know you love me

So time will go
And we may be
Far apart I know
But as far as I can see
This is so good
There's no need for change
It's alright with me
It's as simple as it should be
Simple as it should be

And this love will build
Through flights and streets
In the end I predict
You'll get the very best of me

So put your lips to my lips
Why not go on and take all of it
And just run as fast as you can
Just cause you can

'Cause time will go
And we may be
Far apart I know
But as far as I can see
This is so good
There's no need for change
It's alright with me
It's as simple as it should be
Simple as it should be

I am almost 23
Confused with all the lines in between
They are dying to be read
Softly spoken simply said

Tell me do you believe
In the girl that is me
With her feet to your feet
Well that's all that I need

'Cause time will go
And we may be
Far apart I know
But as far as I can see
This is so good
There's no need for change
It's alright with me
It's as simple as it should be
Simple as it should be

    General Commenti think that this song is saying that even though there are so many other things that get in the way of our relationship, what it comes down to is that you and i love each other and there is nothing that can stand in the way between us. this could be a song about a long distance relationship: "far apart i know"

    General Commenti LOVE this song too... probably my favourite tristan prettyman one (: And just checking - in the first stanza it's "Come on baby, complement me" instead of "compliment" right?? Think that makes more sense... but like EVERY lyrics site i've been to besides this has had that, and even her official website... think it was a typo :S

    Lyric CorrectionI agree that it should be "complement" and not "compliment."

    It comes down to what it means. Is she saying "Come on baby, complete/match me" or "Come on baby, say something nice about me"?
