A Simple Man Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
A thousand years of sleep
I've missed the rising sun
Wish I could change this
Always the same
With each one, every night
I'd watch as the light
Slowly fades from their eyes
Verse 2
Oh so long
Long ago
What he took
Then gave to me
There is no end
It's not what I thought it'd be
Verse 3
Left drained felt impaired
The eyes drew me inside
Hypnotic waltz from his stare
Letting go
Verse 4
Oh I still love
With the night will arrive
The cobblestones
Light misty air
The brief caress
Our sweet affair
Verse 5
Oh so long
Long ago
I was just like any of you
A Simple Man
There was nothing I could do
Verse 6
But I've grown so tired
There's no need to hold on
If you hear me
Just wanna be
Be the man I was
Verse 7
Please believe
If I could
I would change
One thousand years
And still I am
Looking like the day
This all began
Verse 8
Oh so long
Long ago
What he took
Then gave to me
Take it back
And give back the man in me
Verse 9
I'm going on my way
I'm going where there's no desire
Goin' on where I'll stay higher than now
Verse 10
I want what you have taken
My life has been forsaken
Many nights I lay torn I'm breaking down
Why all this began
What's there to care for
Fade away
