A Simple Life

Maybe I’m just another superman standin
on the top of the world lookin down
I don’t want to fall when the fear gets too much
I don’t want to crash into the waiting crowds

I’m tired of saving the same situations
gotta save em in the nick of time
I want a day, gimme some space
I wanna sleep straight through the night

If I had a simple life, I’d sit and celebrate,
and in the quiet, I would close my eyes and drift away
I’d spend my time in the sun, I would always be young
If I could taste… A Simple Life

I’m sick of chasing those higher expectations
When I never reach the finish line?
I’d settle for less, if the rest of the world
would see that no one makes it out alive

but if I had a simple life, I’d sit and celebrate,
and in the quiet, I would close my eyes and drift away
I’d spend my time in the sun , I would always be young
If I could taste…

If I could just take off this cape,
give myself a break
Take my time and save the world another day…
but I don’t , and I won’t , no I don’t

but if I had a simple life, I’d sit and celebrate
and in the quiet, I would close my eyes and drift away
I’d spend my time in the sun, I would always be young
If I could taste… repeat CHORUS…
If I could taste… be young if could taste, if only I could taste…
the simple life
