I want a simple life – live it easy
Chuck it all and move to a better place
I put down the pen where I find it
Walk away

Is it too much to ask for a break here?
It’s outrageous to stop, and breathe the air
I’ve gone soft in a world that’s too hard
I don’t care

And people like to talk to me
All about simplicity and life
I don’t see it anywhere
Sometimes I think that it is not there

Open sleepy eyes I’m hoping that you’ll see
How simple life can be
Lay down your tired head
I’m hoping that you find
Simplicity and peace of mind

I want a simple life living easy
Punch the clock right between the eyes
I’ve been a slave to time and money
My whole life

How did it get so complicated?
How did it ever get so far away?
I need a telescope just to see
The good old days

And people like to talk to me
All about simplicity and life
I don’t see it anywhere
Sometimes I think that it is not there

Open sleepy eyes I’m hoping that you’ll see
How simple life can be
Lay down your tired head
I’m hoping that you’ll find
Simplicity and peace of mind

And all these little things
That get between, that drive us apart
Won’t mean anything
When we leave, once we start
Living again

And people like to talk to me
All about simplicity and life
I don’t see it anywhere
Sometimes I think that it is not there

Open sleepy eyes I’m hoping that you’ll see
How simple life can be
Lay down your tired head
I’m hoping that you’ll find
Simplicity and peace of mind

I want a simple life – live it easy
Chuck it all and move to a better place
I put down the pen where I find it
And walk away
