The Simple Things

Baby, it’s the simple things 
That are truly dear to me 
Please don’t complicate my time 
Or I’ll be gone without a trace 
Trying to find my true meaning 
I listen to your empty rhetoric 
Romancing me 
Enticing me 
Trying to get to what’s sacred to me 
Unless you can open my mind 
Show me that you follow God 
We’ll be but another situation 
Not worth the words or ink 
I only want the simple things 
Complexities don’t fit me
