  • oh the simple days
    in a haze out on peaceful seas
    and you shook me out of my dungarees

    and it's true
    it's not a lie how time does fly
    especially in good company

    elevated by the view
    and i got myself so terribly unglued

    oh the simple days
    i'm amazed despite my strategies
    and there can't be many days like these

    so gimme gimme everything this dreadful life has got to adore
    they said i had enough but now i think i really need some more
    cause i like the sounds of my feet hitting the ground

    don't be so afraid you've got it made
    you're only 25 but johnny black and humbolt green
    made it worth the drive

    and it's not a lie
    because it's true youth is wasted on youth
    especially when you let it pass you by

    elevated by the view
    and i've got myself so totally confused

    gimme gimme everything this dreadful life has got to adore
    they said i had enough but now i think i really need some more
    cause i like the sounds of my feet hitting the ground

    everybody gets so wrapped around the variables
    but i was never very good at math at all
    everybody gets so wrapped around them and i guess that i would too
    i'm not in the mood

    gimme gimme everything this dreadful life has got to adore
    they said i had enough but now i think i really need some more
    gimme gimme everything this dreadful life has got to adore
    they said i had enough but now i think i really need some more
    gimme gimme everything this dreadful life has got to adore
    they said i had enough but now i think i really need some more
    cause i like the sound of my feet hitting the ground
    i like that sound
