Lyrics

Keepin It Simple copyright 2007
Mike Lacey

[stripped down, minimal drums; chunky rhythm]
World's going crazy, pushed to the brink
Fightin it daily, can drive you to drink
Everyone's rushin', wherever they go
Must be important, I don't wanna know


Energy burning to worry and fret, keeps delaying goals that you set


Bridge 1
With the gauntlet life runs you through, need to savor all that you do


Had a buddy, Franconia Bill,
Worked like a dog, til the day he took ill
Left a fortune, banked in our town
But the missus and kids had no Bill around


All you're saving for that rainy day, ain't for nothing if you're called away


Bridge 2


Chorus
Keep it simple, enjoy the view
Livin' the moment, bein' with you


Lookin' for balance, much as I can
A little relaxing, and working the plan
Gonna take, each chance that I get
Don't aim lookin' back with regret

There ain't nothin' as precious as time, wasted on hold or standin' in line


Bridge 1


Chorus [doin' nothin] - Bridge- Repeat chorus [with third line- kickin' back, bein' with you]
