From the recording Billy Jack Purnell Plain & Simple
"Simple Life" is a true depiction of a typical day in my life at the time it was written. I was on the better side of recovering from back surgery. I hadn't been able to work for a while & was focused on writing.
Roll out of bed wipe the sleep from my eyes.
My jeans go on one leg at a time.
Another coffee & cigarette breakfast,
the weather man says the suns gonna shine.
Deleting spam & notifications, a random comment on a post I like.
I share a pic & type LOL, my status reads "Good morning life"
If I had a hammock I'd be in it today.
Reflecting on all the choices I made.
How they got me where I'm standing today & it feels so nice, living the simple life.
It feels so nice, it's my own piece of paradise.
Wind trickling across the grass.
I'm happy with all that I have.
A fresh cut yard & shade from a tree, sounds like a little bit of Heaven to me.
I could get caught up in my situations.
This life ain't at all easy for me.
I could get swallowed in my frustration, but today I don't choose to be.
If I had a pool I'd be in it today.
Reflecting on the mistakes that I've made.
How they got me where I'm standing today & it feels so nice, livin the simple life.
It feels so nice. It's my own piece of paradise.
