Simple Thing

Our little lives get complicated
--It's a simple thing
Simple like a flower
--And that's a complicated thing
Our little minds get concentrated
--It's a simple thing
Simple like detergent
--And that's a concentrated thing
Our hungry mouths get salivated
--It's a simple thing
Simple like a toothache
--And that's a salivated thing
Our little lives get complicated
--It's a simple thing
Simple like a flower
--And that's a complicated thing
Our tiny worlds come tumbling down
--It's a heavy thought
Heavy like a rock
--And that's a scary thing.
