Simple Things

(Suzanne Buirgy)
I love the trees
I love the way their branches reach out for the sky
I love the way that they cover me when I'm walking by
Rustling in the breeze
I love the trees

And I love the birds
I love the way they just hang out on the telephone wires
I love listening to them talk back and forth like those old town criers
In their own special words
I love the birds

Everywhere
All around us
Someone going for that brass ring
I should know
Cause I get dizzy from trying to grab that shiny thing
Everyday
Somplace else to go
Always something happening
There's nothing wrong with complicated
But don't forget the simple things

I love the sea
I love the way it smells the first thing in the morning
I love the way it leaves its treasures without warning
Tides pulling at me
I love the sea

And I love the night
I love the bright and mysterious way the stars shimmer up there
I love knowing that the star I'm seeing might not even be there
It's just a trick of the light
I love the night

Everywhere
All around us
Someone going for that brass ring
I should know
Cause I get dizzy from trying to grab that shiny thing
Everyday
Somplace else to go
Always something happening
There's nothing wrong with complicated
But don't forget the simple things

I love your face
Love the way your eyes kind of crinkle when you laugh
I love every line and wrinkle that you have
There's nothing I would erase
I love your face

Everywhere
All around us
Someone going for that brass ring
I should know
Cause I get dizzy from trying to grab that shiny thing
Everyday
Somplace else to go
Always something happening
There's nothing wrong with complicated
But don't forget the simple things

I love the trees
I love the birds
I love the sea
I love the night
I love your face

The simple things
Don't forget the simple things
