I am a simple man, don’t have much to say…
If you peeled the layers away I think you’ll find
I’m just cynical, cold and clinical
And you may wonder why…
But is it any wonder why?
‘Cos I’ve been touched and stained, kicked, tricked and framed
By people who I used to think were friends
It never ends this cavalcade of poor choices I have made
Did I expect too much?
Do I expect too much?
God knows I get it wrong, and muck it up…
Well and truly fuck it up with everybody else
Then the walls start closing in, so I shed my skin
For another day…
Is there another day?
And as I flounce around, the departure lounge
My flight has been delayed
Temporarily been delayed…
But I know when I’ll arrive, I will feel more alive
More alive than I have been for years
It will be beautiful, yes so beautiful
And I’ll be a lucky man, a lucky man
For a simple man…..
