simple days

(by Nathan Angelo & Micah Dalton)

makin’ somethin’ out of nothin’

we would stop and sing / woah, woah

remember when our work it felt like play

we never felt the change

to be young and weighless falling

to just land and sing / woah, woah

there was time to spend and time to waste

but now the simple days are gone

 

oh the simple days / the simple days are gone

they’re gone

oh the simple days / the simple days are gone

baby, they’re gone / gone

 

lyin’ naked in the garden

and just cryin’ out / woah, woah

remember when our love it felt like play

the cruel and steady change

there’s no shape that I can place around the sound of this

woah, woah

how do I keep the fight? / how do I face

that the simple days are gone?

 

now I turn the page / in a book I think I’ve read

the words that come alive

are the words I’ve never said

I wanted to be sure about my simple ways

but now my simple days / oh the simple days are gone
