LaMontagne, Ray - Such A Simple Thing Lyrics

Tell me what you're feeling
I can take the pain
Tell me that you mean it
That you won't leave again

Tell me what your heart wants
Such a simple thing
My heart is like paper
Yours is like a flame

I can't make you see
If you don't by now
I'll get through these chains
Somehow, somehow

Take it if you want it
Im so tired I just don't care
Can't you see how much you hurt me?
It's like I wasn't there

Tell me what your heart wants
Such a simple thing
My heart is like paper
Yours is like a flame
My heart is like paper
Yours is like a flame

I can't make you see
If you don't by now
I'll get through these chains
Somehow, somehow

Tell me what your heart wants
Such a simple thing
My heart is like paper
Yours is like a flame
My heart is like paper
Yours is like a flame

  4. litew8

    For me, this song is like a dialogue between two people.

  5. wa2k99

    As a guy whos dealt with so much rejection and cheating, this is touching each part of my broken heart

    Beggars And Thieves

    Don't let other people's bullshit bring you down brother. Keep being you. One love

  6. Jason Maurella

    The song could be renamed “in yo feels”

  7. Bill Cayemberg

    Saw Ray in Madison last year. People kept yelling and complaining he wasn't playing "Jolene." In the meantime he was playing this ......people need to listen more and talk less. Why do we expect our artists to never grow or change? Everything else does. Life is transitory.

  8. heather luckman

    Love it

  9. SheepMaySafelyGrazeHere.

    His voice makes you hurt.

  10. Kate Lavender

    reminds me of when i burn my paper wishes to the ether over the sink, such a simple thing, yes, but it can get quite smoldery

  11. Zola Cobain

    First time I've heard it , it was in Berlin , and I think it's that singer , he was singing in the street how ever since then I have fallen in love with Berlin ❤ just beside the Reichstag museum ( the parlement)

  26. Eric Stanek

    Jackie, I just dreamt of you and I walking hand in hand . I was looking into your eyes and thinking to myself how beautiful you are . You out shine everyone in a room with your smile. Being without out you is like living in dark room with the blinds forever closed not allowing one Ray of light through from the sun. I miss you do much

  27. Archana Mohan

    I sang this a capella to my love. I was in so much pain. But I turned to love myself. Now I'm walking away

  28. Roger Snow

    Melds into your Soul , touches deeper than at first you may know , for all of us , have had a relationship that failed

  29. tom headley

    I think I come to this song when I'm already broken. When I need to let loose and just cry or in some way release the burden of emotions I'm carrying around. It works almost every time. Such a powerful song.

  30. Eric Stanek

    I miss you so much Jackie! I'm so sorry for throwing it all away. I want my family back! I love you both so much! I promise I'll never leave again.

    Eda Oquendo

    I would like to show you my cover 😊

  56. lily rose

    You sing as cat Steven, alias yusuf islam. Splendid ! A relaxation for mind and bring Joy to the heart.

  57. bubba luv

    it sounds familiar without being dull or derivative, like every good song you heard distilled rethought

  58. Anna Appleby

    Those dam chains!

  59. Lori Greene

    How is this not playing on every radio station in the country when other garbage is? I'm a huge fan of Ray's and this is one of his best hands down. The 3 million + views attests to that.

  60. adrian

    how is this guy not so so so much more famous? fucking astounding

  61. Carolina R.

    This song is so beautiful and precious. True artist and true talent 💗🌱🌿🍃🌱🌿🍃🌱🌿🍃🍂🍂🍂🍂🍁🌳🍀☘️🌳🌳🌱🌿🍃🍃🌻

  62. Greg Francis


  63. Robert Cotter

    Well I saw her today at the reception... A glass of wine in her hand...

    Thomas Cogdill

    Def a sample...still good tho

  64. jonathan migel

    Man, I like all kinds of music but I could listen to this song on repeat and not be sad about it at all! So relaxing, so smooth, so good.

  65. thelonelybois

    Heartbreak is one of the the ugliest things I have ever encountered and I often contemplate suicide to ease the pain

  66. savioba1

    I don't know i got here but i don't want to leave now!

  67. jonzbeach

    i know he's kinda of a surly ahole, but fucking A he can write amazing music


    It seems far fetched, try to believe me. People do crazy things when they are enveloped in rose-colored affection. I truly was searching for you. The modern age has its drawbacks. Everyone has a fraction of the time, 24-hour accessibility and dwindling conversational skills. Then you walked in with your guitar and three cornered smile, I never stood a chance. A poet's soul, an adonis's body and the wit of Socrates. I am speechless some days simply because I stand in awe of your brilliance.

  69. Ivan Schmidt-hansen

    Nice and cool song

  70. Jay Muratore

    There is something ethereal and pure in his voice when he sings "tell me what your heart wants"

  71. Patricia Arnold

    Beautiful. Touches my heart. Those deep scars.😎💕🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷

  72. Christina Storm

    What an amazing song!

  73. Stephen Veronie

    Try to find that one person who just makes you smile everytime you look at them remember the way you laugh when they are around cherish the conversations you have with them and never let go of their thoughts and actions you were ever so changed by . Things change every day and we tend to forget what truly makes us happy . Treat everyone the way you truly want to be treated because the words and actions that we present are there to stay locked in our hearts and minds . Changing someone else's life every day.
