Simple Tune (Randy Downey)

She's not an angel sent from up above,
And I am not a hunk a hunk of burning love;
We're just two people trying to make it through this life,
There's no such thing as free,
For everything we have we've paid the price.

We take each day just a minute at a time,
We muddle through, but it can be an uphill climb;
We work together at the problems in our way,
Get them behind us, then we clear a path to face another day.

But if you feel you need to read between the lines,
Don't take too long because you're only wasting time;
There's nothing hidden here demonic or sublime,
It's just a simple tune based upon a simple life and time.

We carry scars from the battles that we've won,
We're undefeated 'cause we've never turned and run;
The wounds have healed and we are stronger than before,
We're gonna need it just to face the things I know still lie in store.

But if you feel you need to read between the lines,
Don't take too long because you're only wasting time;
Don't play it backwards 'cause there's nothing here to find,
It's just a simple tune based upon a simple life and time.

I must confess that I'm inclined to ramble on,
I dwell too much upon the days already gone;
Our situation isn't really nothing new,
When it comes down to it the bottom line is: hey, I'm just like you.

But if you feel you need to read between the lines,
Don't take too long because you're only wasting time;
There's nothing hidden here demonic or sublime,
It's just a simple tune, just a simple tune.

It's just a simple tune, just a simple tune,
It's just a simple tune based upon a simple life and time.
