Such Simplicity

By Bruce Clifford

I remember when life was as simple as a word
I remember before all of this became a blur
I remember how easy it used to be
I remember how it was with you and me
Such simplicity

Do you remember running all over town
The endless Sundays that no longer come around
Do you remember being in another place in time
It's still there waiting if you look deep inside your mind

Such simplicity
It's how we used to be
Such simplicity

Once things become out of control
Once the chaos takes its hold
It's never the same when simple things end
It becomes less black and white and then you're no longer friends

I remember when life was as easy as a kite
I remember before the bottle and the fight
I remember what is still inside you and me
I remember all the things we used to see
Such simplicity

Do you remember the emotion and the view
The spontaneous reaction to everything we knew
Do you remember laughing and dancing to our song
There was a time when nothing could ever go wrong

Such simplicity
It's how we used to be
Such simplicity
