The Shins - Simple Song

Well this is just a simple song,
to say what you done
I told you about all those fears,
and away they did run
You sure must be strong
And you feel like an ocean made warm by the sun

When I was just nine years old,
I swear that I dreamt
Your face on a football field,
and a kiss that I kept
Under my vest
Apart from everything, but the heart in my chest

I know that things can really get rough, when you go it alone
Don’t go thinking you gotta be tough, and play like a stone
Could be there’s nothing else in our lives, so critical
As this little home!

My life in an upturned boat,
marooned on a cliff
You brought me a great big flood,
and you gave me a lift
Girl oh what a gift
You tell me with your tongue,
And your breath was in my lungs, and you float over the rift

I know that things can really get rough, when you go it alone
Don’t go thinking you gotta be tough, and play like a stone
Could be there’s nothing else in our lives, so critical
As this little home!

Well this will be a simple son…
