Simple As This Lyrics

by Jake Bugg

I been in search of stones
Making up the pavement
of less traveled roads
Mining for treasure deep in my bones
But it only brought me down

Went looking for reverence
Tried to find it in a bottle
Came back again
High on a hashpipe of good intent
But it only brought me down

Tried institutions of the mind and soul
It only taught me what I should not know
Oh the answer well
Who would have guessed
Could be something as simple as this,
Something as simple as this?

Traveled to each oceans end
Saw all 7 wonders,
Trying to make some sense
Memorized the mantra confucius said
But it only let me down

Tried absolution of the mind and soul
It only led me where I should not go
Oh and the answer well,
How could I miss
Something as simple as this?
Something as simple as this?

I've been falling crashing breaking
And all the while you
Stood here waiting
For me girl

Tried liberation of my own free will
But it left me looking to get higher still
Oh and the answer well
who would have guessed
could be something as simple as this?
God knows how I could have missed
Something as simple as this
