Simple and Plain

Album: Black Is The New Black (2015)
  • This is my life
    Simple and plain
    It is what it is
    Yeah, I will never change

    Whoa
    I am simple and plain
    I will never change

    I was born into a house of hate
    He was my brother from the age of eight
    In a place of violence, he kept me safe
    The only good thing in a terrible place

    He was there when he needed to be
    He taught me to listen, he taught me to see
    He taught me to think when the world got loud
    He taught me to fight when there was no way out

    Whoa
    I am simple and plain
    I will never change

    I love my life
    Oh, even on the bad days
    I will never change
    I will never change

    I wish most times I had nothing to say
    I wish I could smile and nod and fade
    I wish my life was a video game
    I wish I was easy like government aid

    I'd take all the air out of every room
    This is me, this is what I do
    When I fall down and it all goes wrong
    It makes me better, yeah it makes me strong

    You can do what you like to do
    If you dance with me, I will dance with you
    We can all fall small, walk away smooth
    Let me be me, and you be you

    Or you can do what you have to do
    Fuck with me, I will fuck with you
    If you hurt my people, I will do what I have to do
    To make all your nightmares come true

    Whoa
    I am simple and plain
    I will never change
    I love my life
    Every single day
    I will never change
    I will never change

    I will never change

    Show me the way you are
    Show me the way you talk
    Show me that you have found a better way
    I love the way I live my life
    No, I will never change

    Show me a life without mistakes
    Turn it around if you think you can
    No, I will never change
    Bring me down if you think you can
    I will member change
    Run me down if you think you can
    I will never change

    I will never change
    I will never change Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
