Elisabeth Withers — Simple Things lyrics

Verse 1:
How do you explain this funny feeling deep inside
Makes me smile when I'm lonely - comforts me when I'm sad
(How do you) explain this sweet sweet smile on my face
That just keeps (getting better) with each passing day
For so (long) I didn't (know) I was searching in all the wrong places

Chorus:
(thinking if I) spent more money than I could
(if I) worked harder than I should
Always having friends to feel good (I'd be happier)
Loosing my breath in the hustle
Just stressin' over nuthin'
Forgetting the real joys that lie - in the simple things

Verse 2:
How do you explain when there's more month at the end (of
The money)
Your situations tells (you to worry) but you see the flowers in bloom
(How do you) explain the soft caress on your face
That tells you it'll get better with each passing day
For so (long) I did not know I was looking in all the wrong places

Chorus:
(thinking if I) played more games then I could
(if I) worried more then I should
Spinnin' my wheels with the lover that meant me no good
Loosing my breath in the hustle
Just stressin' over nuthin'
Forgetting the real pleasures that lie - in the simple things

Bridge:
The sun shining on my face - your strong embrace
Mama calling - daddy calling to see if I'm ok
The fresh air I breathe - enough food to eat
A warm place to sleep at night - are the simple things
