"Simple Song" as written by and Lyle Pearce Lovett....
It's a simple song for simple feeling
You see the moon and watch it rise
Across the continent the night bird sings
And somewhere someone hears its cry

So disillusioned
Keep your head down
If you do they'll never know
You'll have no answers to their questions
And they will have to let you go

And disenfranchised
Revolution
They'll take away by right what's yours
And make you martyrs of your own cause
When they don't know what cause it's for

And all deserted
Stand alerted
They'll love you when you're all alone
But you find a red rose in the morning light
You wait the night and find it gone

So hear my words with faith and passion
For what I say to you is true
And when you find the one you might become
Remember part of me is you

    General CommentI couldn't believe these lyrics weren't on here. Ridiculous.

    This is an incredibley poignant and beautiful song. His voice is so full of emotion, everytime I hear this I just feel flooded with it. The last verse, in particular the last two lines, hit me so hard.

    "And when you find the one, you might become

    Remeber part of me is you."

    People say Lyle Lovett, the artist, is ugly. But I think this is a great example of where beauty REALLY comes from. It is amazing how so much talent and beauty comes from inside someone who may not look like they posses it. I truely think that whatever beauty he may lack in looks he radiates in his personality and music.

    Incredible. So beautiful. Lyle Lovett is truely an amazing man.

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song.

    If I could only listen to one artist for the rest of my life, it would be Lyle. He covers so many genres and I never grow tired of his voice. Furthermore, I happen to think Lyle Lovett is a very good looking man. His genius is simply a bonus.

    General CommentThe most beautiful lyrics perfectly arranged and played. I love this song.
    The piano & cello are heavenly.
    I think Lyle Lovett and Jackson Browne are masters of writing something deeply personal with a universal connection...
