Things Aren't So Simple Any More
 
Lyrics
VERSE
Things were simpler in the sandbox
That was right beside that old barn
Sometimes we played with little toy blocks
Sometimes we ran around arm in arm

VERSE
But things aren't so simple anymore
As now we say goodbye to yesterday
And, oh, late at night, I'm walkin' the floor
Wishin' hard there was another way

CHORUS
Things aren't so simple anymore
What we had has taken quite a fall
Now all this freedom is more like prison walls
And things aren't so simple, oh, anymore

RIDE

VERSE
Back then, against the world, me and her
We had love; we had everything
Can we return to where we were?
I'm still wearing our wedding ring

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
No, things aren't so simple anymore
