Elton John – Simple Things Lyrics

Elton John Simple Things Lyrics, Simple Things Lyrics by Elton John ft Brandi Carlile

As an old man I’m a young man
‘Cause I’ve not been old for long
And before these trembling waters settle
I’ll have flown the pond

So I don’t mean to be morbid
Or a bit too on the nose
But I’d like to share a few things
That I’ve learned along the road

What you’ll find chasing dreams
Is the finish line recedes
And the riddle stays a riddle
Oh the humor’s bittersweet

All nature does is dance
So when you dance you’re in accord
Look no further than the feeling
That it gives you for reward

Reward
Reward
Reward

Simple things
Hard to learn
Fire is hot
Burn, burn, burn

Simple truth
Hard to see
Not what you want
But what you need

Mm hmm

I’ve been a sleepwalker, a cheap talker
A sly grin, a discreet offer
I’ve held steady for a gaze
I’ve led a lover through a maze

Thrown bottles at the wall
When someone forgot to call
I’ve done all the things a wild heart will do
I will do

What you’ll find chasing dreams
Is the finish line recedes
And the riddle stays a riddle
Oh the humor’s bittersweet

All nature does is dance
So when you dance you’re in accord
Look no further than the feeling
That it gives you for reward

Reward
Reward
Reward

Simple things
Hard to learn
Fire is hot
Burn, burn, burn

Simple truth
Hard to see
Not what you want
But what you need

Simple things
Hard to learn
Fire is hot
Burn, burn, burn

Simple truth
Hard to see
Not what you want
But what you need

Mm hmm
