​The Simple Life

This song is by Eddie Levert & Gerald Levert and appears on the album Something to Talk About (2007).

It's so real to see, you don't have to be everything to everyone
Just be glad another day to see the sun
And you got a chance to take the wrongs and make them right
It's always 'bout the finer things in life
As long as you're breathing you can get up on your dream

And just remember, don't be hard on yourself
You best believe there'll be days it's gonna rain again
We all want the finer things we see with our eyes
We deny happiness we have inside
We all gotta try, try the simple life, the simple life

See, money and cars would do but three simple words ?I Love You?
Always seemed to brighten up a day, oh, yeah
And all the material gain, all the fortune and the fame
Don't take away the pain when somebody comes and says
?Oh, you've lost your best friend?
The money and the cars, they don't mean nothing

Just remember, don't be hard on yourself
You best believe there'll be days it's gonna rain, oh, yeah, yeah
We all want the finer things we see with our eyes
We deny the happiness we kept inside
Oh, we need to try, sometimes try the simple life, the simple life, oh

I'm not sayin' just settle
And just lay down and let the whole world run over you
You gotta do what you gotta do, oh

But don?t, don't be hard on yourself
You best believe there'll be days it's gonna rain, pouring down, down, down
We all want the finer things we see with our eyes
And we deny the happiness we have inside
Oh, sometimes we need to try, the simple, the simple, the simple life
The simple life
