"A Simple Life" as written by and Philip James Selway....
Above the traffic noise and fights
Can you hear me?
I'm standing right next to you
As the crowds pour out on a cold, cold night
There's a place we can go
There's we both can hide
And we'll stay quite still
We won't make a sound
We'll turn out the lights
We'll turn out the lights
Then we'll leave and disappear into the night
We'll turn out the lights
We just want a simple life
We'll turn out the lights
Please turn out the lights

On down the road, we walk alone
Can you see me?
I'm scared that I'm losing you
As the crowds press on through the cold cold night
There's a place we can go
There's a place where we both can hide
And we'll stay quite still
We won't make a sound
We'll turn out the lights
We'll turn out the lights
Then we'll leave and disappear into the night
We'll turn out the lights
We just want a simple life
We'll turn out the lights
Please turn out the lights

All the vows we made, I'd make them all again
I gave my promise and the life we had is sacred
I wouldn't lie to you, I could not lie to you
Turn it up, we'll make some noise behind
So turn out the lights
Please turn out the lights
