Music by elton johnLyrics by gary osborneReleased as a uk b-side in 1984I’m a simple man with a simple dreamIn a far from simple timeAnd I payed the price of the road I choseBut at least the choice was mineAnd the times I get the feelingThat the journey’s end is nearBut I prefer to die with my head held highThan to live my life in fearI’m a simple man from a time gone byGrowing cold and old aloneThere’s a time to run and a time to hideAnd a time to head for homeTo forgive and be forgivenIf it’s the last thing I can doThen in death’s release I may find the peaceThat in life I never knew’cause I’m a simple man with a simple dreamI may never see come true
