Verse 1
As I am just sitting there wondering about what really is important in life,
I remember when my life was carefree and every problem was handed to someone else.
Now I'm just wishing that those days would've continued through my life.

Chorus
I miss the simple days.
The days when everything was as easy as 2 plus 2.
I'm wishing for the days when mistakes didn't cost as much as they do now.
I just want the days of dancing all day long without a single care in the world.
I'm longing for the simple days.

Verse 2
I find my way to the swing set at the local park.
There's a bunch of little boys and girls running around having all the fun.
I watch them and long for my childhood once again.
But there isn't a magical time machine.

Chorus
I miss the simple days.
The days when everything was as easy as 2 plus 2.
I'm wishing for the days when mistakes didn't cost as much as they do now.
I just want the days of dancing all day long without a single care in the world.
I'm longing for the simple days.

Bridge
I just wanna go back to being five years old.
I want the elementary school days back when we got naps.
I didn't want to grow up but now I have too.
I want my simple days back.

Chorus
I miss the simple days.
The days when everything was as easy as 2 plus 2.
I'm wishing for the days when mistakes didn't cost as much as they do now.
I just want the days of dancing all day long without a single care in the world.
I'm longing for the simple days.


The author's comments:
I wrote most of this song at the local park by my house. I was inspired by all the little kids just running around without a single worry in life. I realized that once you hit a point in your life everything can and will change and you will have more worries in your life. I really miss the days when my life was worry free and care free. Just like the chorus says "The days when everything was as easy as 2 plus 2", I wish those days would come back. But they won't come back at all.
