Simple Pleasures

I wrote these lyrics on the train home from work last week. I thought it was going to be a faster song but I also wanted to write the music on piano and since I'm not a great piano player it came out slower than I expected. I think this tempo fits the lyrics better. That kind of serendipity is one of life's Simple Pleasures.



You need love
Don't we all?
But you must rise
Please don't fall
Please don't fall
Please don't fall

You need somebody
I know you do
But you don't need me
I need you
I need you
I need you

Simple pleasures
Means a lot
Simple pleasures
It's all we've got

You turned everything
Upside down
When you woke up
This ghost town
This ghost town
This ghost town

Simple pleasures
Means a lot
Simple pleasures
It's all we've got
