SIMPLER MINDS

1st lyrics

I had a notion to recreate the year '95

And slave away all Christmas with that in mind

Invite the faces of that time in life

The goal is just

But those doors are shut

Someone asked me to take the year '94

And cover up the fact it was such a chore

I told him history must not fade away

Memories may hold

But you don't have to stay

MAIN CHORUS

And then we talked and laughed as we roamed

About how this would confuse all the folks at home

So I told him to put it aside

Embrace your time, don't run and hide

Dinner's made and just in time

Now we can settle with simpler minds

2nd lyrics

I told the boy a story of this guy I know

I love him oh so dearly with the mind he shows

Keen to work and keener to play

His mood has changed

All rearranged

He wanted to show how pigs shaped the moon

How our existence isn't threatened so long as we're in bloom

Then he realized we weren't all plants

We were uprooted long ago by our "won'ts" and "cant's"

So now he's settled for less

You don't have to agree but it means less stress

MAIN CHORUS

And then we talked and laughed as we roamed

About how this would confuse all the folks at home

So I told him to put it aside

Embrace your time, don't run and hide

Dinner's made and just in time

Now we can settle with simpler minds

3rd lyrics

So the moon wasn't a weapon or more

And God is a cushion for souls wayward and torn

And we can't make a year burn bright

Without the nostalgic urge to recreate it's light

I had an urge to recreate the year 95

It'll probably come to pass on the day I die

The boy asked me if there's less in life

I answered "time comes quick, and that's the trick"

MAIN CHORUS

And then we talked and laughed as we roamed

About how this would confuse all the folks at home

So I told him to put it aside

Embrace your time, don't run and hide

Dinner's made and just in time

Now we can settle with simpler minds
