SIMPLY EVERYTHING

I wanted to write about the contradiction that I think everyone must feel a little bit of. It comes from the idea that the things you want in life are simple. When you think about them, whatever they are, they seem like really simple things. And you think that if you could just get your life to arrange itself so that those things were true then you’d be so much happier than you are now. And you know that it’s not just that you don’t like where you are right now. And you know that it’s not any other things that will do. It’s just those few simple things that you want to change and if you had the power to do it then all would be well. So really those simple things become everything important. And in wanting those simple things, what you really want is the same thing everyone wants. What you really want and what your “simple thing” really is, is everything.

 

 

OH LORD  (ALL I WANT) OH LORD  (click to play) – Tim Pepper

 

OH Lord, I feel like I’m always alone;

I don’t know where I’m going,

I don’t know where’s my home.

Oh Lord, You know I come and go;

You know despite the show

I’m more broken than I’m whole.

 

All I want is a simple thing,

Just like everyone who wants everything.

And all I’ll take is most of it,

Or maybe every bit;

Whatever I can fit.

 

OH Lord, All I want is a loving hand

To take inside my own;

A body to behold.

OH Lord, All I want is another’s eyes

To look inside my soul;

To know my very ghost.

 

All I want is a simple thing,

Just like everyone who wants everything.

And all I’ll take is most of it,

Or maybe every bit;

Whatever I can fit.

 

OH Lord, I think I finely know,

My heart will ebb and flow;

My love will seep out slow.Share on Facebook
