Track Name: Simple Song about a Girl
Let’s sleep together every night
Any bed, any floor, anywhere’s alright
Let’s let our bodies reunite
Oh, let's stay up just talking till daylight
Let’s whisper on train rides
And metal birds in the sky
Let’s be madly honest
Yeah, let’s keep every promise

Let’s go out and see the world
And just try to understand how this mess unfurled
Let’s make reality swirl
Having wine and psilocybes, laughing till we hurl
You can teach me your languages
I can teach you chord changes
We can just do whatever forever and ever
And never get tired whatsoever

Don’t wanna have a brilliant ballad about a girl who got away
I’d rather write a simple song about a girl who came to stay

I’m in love with your ideals
If you only knew how many arguments of yours I steal
And I admire what you feel
It’s always so good willed, so beautiful, so real
Getting old and ugly
Has never sounded so lovely
When every evil gives a scare too much to bare
You’ll be there to remind me there’s beauty still everywhere

Don’t wanna spend a lifetime singing about a girl who got away
I’d rather live a life of singing to the girl who came to stay
