Simple Pleasures

This song is by Basia and appears on the album The Sweetest Illusion (1994).

You don't have to be so strong
Don't move mountains for me
Don't slay a dragon
Every time you run back here
You are more than a knight in shining armour
Who would need a prince
Anyway I don't believe in fairy tales
Let's leave them for the dreamers
There is something much more real I'm after

Simple pleasures--bliss I finally found
In ordinary home-made treasures
On familiar ground
When I'm with you--the time's so precious
Hours flying past
We've got to take some long-term measures
So simple joy is here to last

Don't go yet
I'll be missing your smile,
Your gentle voice, so soothing
Very night and day I will long for the warmth
Of your embrace
So who would need a prince
Anyway I don't believe in fairy tales
Let's leave them for the dreamers
There is something much more real I'm after

Simple pleasures...
