"Simple Life" as written by Tobias Erik Karlsson and Chad Wolfinbarger....
An everlasting cigarette and that's all you want
Waiting for a bus to take you back home
Cause Tuesday came too soon, Wednesday left you feeling used
Oh tomorrow, at least you hope it's warm

Don't you want to live a simple life?
You pray for a change before you turn out the lights
Your burn a bridge every time it feels right
Oh you don't want to forget where you're from

So tired of feeling cheap, you're always in need
Innocent, at least that's what you think
You got two beasts to kill, so empty your gun
Oh good intention, they weren't enough

Don't you want to live a simple life?
You pray for a change before you turn out the lights
You burn a bridge every time it feels right
Don't want to forget where you're from?
Don't want to forget where you're from?

You just want to live a simple life?
You pray for a change before you turn out the lights
You burn a bridge every time it feels right
Oh don't want to forget where you're from

You just want to live a simple life?
You pray for a change before you turn out the lights
You burn a bridge every time it feels right
Don't want to forget where you're from?
Don't want to forget where you're from?
Don't want to forget where you're from?

    General CommentWhere's the love for Carolina Liar? It's as if they invaded my brain and stole my thoughts with this song. I recently finished college and i'm back in my small hometown, working a job I hate. I don't want much, but I want more than this, and more times than not, I just wanna forget were i'm from.

    General Comment'Cause Tuesday came too soon
    Wednesday left you feeling used
    Oh, tomorrow you hope at least it's warm

    These lines, are amazing. Its funny how it seems two days can be so bad, however one little thing like the weather being warm can make you happy. I smile every time i hear it.

    I <3 Carolina Liar
