Simple Child

Born that way, a simple child, he's never going to change
Whatever plans you made in life you had to rearrange
He looks at you so patently, this complicated man
Born into a world that you
could never trust to take up his hand

This world that eats itself, the world of humans
who always complicate the simplest emotions

There he is, your simple child, he's reaching for you now
And asking not much more than you'd
reserved for him somehow

Moment by moment
years pass
clear water over glass

It's not as if there was no frustration
no pain, no obstacles, no
complications

He taught your simple heart a love it could never have endured
when he was just a simple child
and couldn't say a word

He's your simple child
