​Simplicity

This song is by Tim Curry and appears on the album Simplicity (1981) and on the compilation album The Best of Tim Curry (1989).

I try every way I know to tell you
I run down all my clever ways
Every smart, forever phrase
How'm I going get a
Hack out another love letter
But you deserve better babe
The hardest thing for me
Is true simplicity
But it's the only thing
That's good enough for you

Every day I wake up later
I'm afraid to face the sun
I want to hide from everyone
Memory is bitter
Tell myself I'm no quitter
But the gold no longer glitters babe
The hardest thing for me
Is true simplicity
But it's the only thing
That's good enough for you

Blood in a bucket
No rhyme, mainline, sunshine
And it's the nearest
This boy's been to joy
And I do believe
I shall believe
I shall be free
On the day you say you need me
Need me
Need me
Yeah ...

I push the doorknob to the booze
I might try out for the blues
Aching and lonely
What does it take to telephone me?
I'm much too close to breaking
But I do believe
I shall believe
I shall be free
On the day you say you need me
Need me
Need me
Yeah ...

The hardest thing for me
Is true simplicity
It's the only thing
That's good enough for you
The hardest thing for me
Is true simplicity
It's the only thing
That's good enough for you
Yeah, Yeah ...
