"Simple Song" as written by and Jeffrey Steele Jesse Littleton....
Wake up here I go
Cram it all down my throat
Stomach so full that I wish I could choke

Seven a.m. my heads already in a spin
As soon as I'm out the door
Bam it hits me like a ton of those red bricks
Can't dig myself out of this highest ditch
This madness

I swear sometimes I can't tell
Which way is up
Which way is down
It's all up in my face
I need to push it away
Somebody push it away
So all I can hear
Is a simple song
Sing along now
La la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la
La la la la

Mid day sun beating on the concrete
Burning up my feet
To many cars in the street
The noise
The red
The green
It makes me wanna scream

Five o'clock knocks
Bumper on bumper on bumper
Horns honking
Nobody's looking
But everyone's talking
It's another day
On this highway

I swear sometimes I can't tell
Which way is up
Which way is down
It's all up in my face
I need to push it away
Somebody push it away
Cause all I wanna here
Is a simple song
Sing along now
La la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la
La la la la

Hey!

Sing along now
Sing along

What I'd give
To turn it off
And make it stop
Make it stop
Gotta make it stop
So all that I can here
Is a simple song oh

Sing along now
La la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la
La da da da

    General Commenti really like this song
    it's about how in the industry that she's in
    there is so much pressure and stress
    and sometimes you just need to step back
    and remember all the easy things.

    "cram it all down my throat, stomach so full, that i wish i could choke'"

    that's my favorite line it's so deep.

    General CommentI earned alot of respect for her after listening to this

    I can totally relate to this and i wish more ppl would come out with songs like this instead of sex drugs and stupid stuff

    When i wake up my mind instantly starts worrying fearing the worst and not believing in change. Im always so upbeat and I just with I can breathe simplicity and enjoy life without all the constant black.

    General CommentThis is describing the stressful rush of the entertainment business. The person involved...Miley, in this instance...is so caught up in the whole thing, she barely gets to direct herself or make any decisions. Sometimes she wishes she can just put the world at peace for a moment and hear a "simple song" to calm her down.

    General Commentwow her new albums great. like you can really tell its all her. not like 'oh i hope these songs get me on the radioooo!' like really people think so lowly of her because of those damn pictures. holy shit shes fifteen like don't expect her to act 35 and be mature enough to know whats right and wrong.

    General CommentI love this song, because of how so raw it is, the lyrics, and how there's pop/rock-ish in it, yet still really pretty piano. Love this song! It's like this everyday with me. I can't take it.
