Keep It Simple (Van Morrison)

They mocked me when I was singing the songs Trying to get back to something more simple than we have They mocked me cause I told it like it was Wrote about disappointment and greed Wrote about what we really didn't need in our lives Make us feel alive and whole Illusions and pipe dreams on the one hand And straight reality is always cold Saying something hard edged is off the wall And it might seem too bold Mocked me when it got out of hand Nobody tried to understand Now we got to keep it simple and that's that Illusions and pipe dreams on the one hand And straight reality is always cold Saying something hard edged is off the wall And it just might be too bold Well I'm down here on the running board Where I've been many times before But we got to keep it simple to save ourselves Mocked me when I tried to get back Said the train was completely off the track And we got to get back to something simple to save ourselves Whoa we got to get back to something simple just to save yourselves Well got to get back to something simple just to save yourselves Well you got to keep it simple, keep it simple just to, and that's that Whoa you got to keep it simple nowadays and that's just that Whoa you got to keep it simple nowadays and that's just the way it is And you got to keep it simple these days cause that's the way it is Well you got to keep it, keep it simple and that's that
