The Simple Things in Life

By
More by this author
(Verse 1)
Walking home from school one day
I passed by so many simple things
I didn’t even glance, just walked away
We all miss some great stuff that life brings

Mrs. Soams waves to me from her front porch
But I don’t even look in her direction
The moon is bright tonight; it needs to let me be
I don’t even notice its perfection, but…

(Chorus)
If I just opened my eyes, I might have seen
The big things, the little things, the things in between
The flowers bloom, the blue jays croon
The beautiful light of the moon

Just look at your life from an outside glance
Because we, sadly, don’t get a second chance, so realize
The little things, they seal our fate
It’s the simple things in life that make it great
Yeah…

(Verse 2)
Now it’s too late, I can’t go back
I wish I had realized it back when
My eyes were closed, I didn’t see
If I had seen those simple things back then

A smile a day would have brightened my life
I want to go back having known these things
I want to shout to the world so they see
We all miss some great stuff that life brings

(Chorus)
If I just opened my eyes, I might have seen
The big things, the little things, the things in between
The flowers bloom, the blue jays croon
The beautiful light of the moon

Just look at your life from an outside glance
Because we, sadly, don’t get a second chance, so realize
The little things, they seal our fate
It’s the simple things in life that make it great

(Bridge)
Hey world listen, I’ve got something to say









You all have the chance to see little things each day



An even bigger person than you thought you could be
Will arise, they’ll watch, they’ll see…

(Chorus)

If I just opened my eyes, I might have seen





The big things, the little things, the things in between






The flowers bloom, the blue jays croon



The beautiful light of the moon














Just look at your life from an outside glance











Because we, sadly, don’t get a second chance, so realize




The little things, they seal our fate













It’s the simple things in life









That make life… great


(Ending)
Walking home from school one day
I passed by so many simple things
I didn’t even glance, just walked away
We all miss some great stuff that life brings...
