Somewhere inside me
Something is hiding
Something I never knew
If I'm open and honest
Keeping my promise
Someday I'll see this through

I can't hear anything
Listening, I'm listening
I need the space to move
Breaking through to something new
I need the chance to feel something real, something real
Everything I know is spinning out of control

So, so, so tell me where do we go
There is a burning that's inside of my soul, and it shows
We all want something more than just a simple life
Hey, hey, so give me something to say
I had the words but then I through 'em away, and you know
We all want something more than just a simple life

If I walk in a straight line
Wait for the right time
How can I know for sure
They'll tell you how to get by
Just put your life on standby
And in the end you hope that you were right

So believe what you want
No, you're not who you thought
The more you fake the harder you fall

So, so, so tell me where do we go
There is a burning inside of my soul, and it shows
We all want something more than just a simple life
Hey, hey, so give me something to say
I wanted nothing and I gave it all, gave it all away
We all want something more than just a simple life

    General CommentThis song seems so fun, like something you'd "rock out" or dance to. I love the sound of it.

    General Commentit's pretty basic, but i really do think this song is just about how everyone wants the perfect life full of stories to tell, friends made, and love had
