Simple Kind Of Life Lyrics

by No Doubt

For a long time I was in love
Not only in love, I was obsessed
With a friendship that no one else could touch
It didn't work out, I'm covered in shells

And all I wanted was the simple things
A simple kind of life
And all I needed was a simple man
So I could be the wife

I'm so ashamed, I've been so mean
I don't know how it got to this point
Oh, I always was the one with all love
You came along, I'm hunting you down

Like a sick domestic abuser
Looking for a fight
And all I wanted was the simple things
A simple kind of life

If we met tomorrow for the very first time
Would it start all over again? Would I try to make you mine?

I always thought, I'd be a mom
Sometimes I wish for a mistake
The longer that I wait, the more selfish that I get
You seem like you'd be a good dad

Now all those simple things are simply too complicated for my life
In all I get so faithful to my freedom
A selfish kind of life
When all I ever wanted was the simple things
A simple kind of life

A simple kind of life
A simple kind of life
A simple kind of life
