Somewhere along the way
I got caught up in the race
I kept spinning and turning
Lost myself, my hope, my faith

We're always wanting more than what we have
And what I've learned is all I really need are

The simple things that come without a price
The simple things like happiness, joy and love in my life
I've seen it all from so many sides and I hope you would agree
The best things in life are the simple things

Say everybody don't get me wrong
You got to understand
Ambition and knowledge
Are the seeds of every woman and man

It's good to work, work hard and prosper
As long as you take time to find

The simple things that come without a price
The simple things like happiness, joy and love in my life
I've seen it all from so many sides and I hope you would agree
That the best things in life are the simple things

All the simple things
They're the simple things
Just the simple things
They are the simple things

All the simple things
This world moves so fast
They're the simple things
Sometimes you got to slow down, down, down
To find out what it's all about

We're always wanting more than what we have
What I've learned, is all I really need are

The simple things that come without a price
The simple things like happiness, joy and love in my life
I've seen it all from so many sides and I hope you would agree
That the best things in life are the simple things

Girl you know it now, the simple things in life
That's when everything's
Love and happiness with joy sometimes
These are the simple things that I need, oh
The simple things in life
Girl you know it now, the simple things in life
