I have watched the time go by
I've risked it all for foolish pride
I've yearned for changes fate's denied
I gaze upon them still
Engaged in battle with my plans
Struggling to understand
What makes this simple man
Wander up that hill

Simple man what are you doing
Simple man what are you proving
You need a simple plan
Simple man

I dream the wind has pulled me free
Above it all above the sea
And looking down through blues and greens
I see a ship like me
Rocking to another’s song
The stars have proved the compass wrong
Will anyone be searching long
For a ship that looks like me

Simple man what are you doing
Simple man what are you proving
You need a simple plan
Simple man

What’s so complicated what’s so complicated
It’s just your life
It’s kind on over-rated not that sophisticated
Just change yourself and you’ll be all right

An empty hand lurks in the dark
To shove me back each time I start
If only I could disregard
The things that people say
And look at me I write this tale
Of woe is me while others sail
As both our silver linings pale
I’ll find another way

Simple man what are you doing
Simple man what are you proving
You need a simple plan
Simple man

I dream the wind has pulled me free
Above it all above the sea
And looking down through blues and greens
I see a ship like me
Rocking to another’s song
The stars have proved the compass wrong
Will anyone be searching long
For a ship that looks like me

Simple man what are you doing
Simple man what are you proving
You need a simple plan
Simple man

Simple man - what are you doing
Simple man - what are you proving
Simple man - simple man simple man
Simple man - simple man
