Young Rising Sons - Simple Life Lyrics



He lived in the mountains away from mankind
Built something from nothing
Not owning even a dime
He left so much behind

And when I discovered my grandfather's life
My mountains, they turned into hills
That I could climb
I found a simple life
I found what I was missing
Right underneath my chin
And I'll keep my eyes wide open
Letting daylight in

I decided long ago that I'd be more like him
Whether rain, the sun, the sleet, or snow
It's a simple life I'd live
If I was poor, or rich, or young, or old
It all hangs on a string
When my day has come I hope they say
It's the simple life I lived
It's the simple life I lived

I found an old box in the attic one night
His dogtags from wars that he fought
Packed neatly inside
He kept it all inside

The photos and letters revealed so much truth
The folded up flag made me cry
'Cause I never knew
Here's to a simple life
I found what I've been missing
Right underneath my chin
And I'll keep my eyes wide open
Letting daylight in

I decided long ago that I'd be more like him
Whether rain, the sun, the sleet, or snow
It's a simple life I'd live
If I was poor, or rich, or young, or old
It all hangs on a string
When my day has come I hope they say
It's the simple life I lived
It's the simple life I lived

Everytime I feel defeat
I'll remember everything
All the words that you taught me'
They'll live on forever

And so I decided long ago
As life starts closing in
I'd raise a glass and toast to all
That it's a simple life you live

I decided long ago that I'd be more like him
Whether rain, the sun, the sleet, or snow
It's a simple life I'd live
If I was poor, or rich, or young, or old
It all hangs on a string
When my day has come I hope they say
It's the simple life I lived
It's the simple life I lived
