Dsus2  Dm  Cmaj7  C    x1


Dsus2           Dm               Cmaj7  C
     For a long time I was in love

Dsus2            Dm               Cmaj7  C
     Not only in love, I was obsessed

Dsus2           Dm           Cmaj7                 C
     With a friendship that no one else could touch

Dsus2               Dm                       Cmaj7  C
     It didn't work out, I'm covered in shells


C              C7             F
     And all I wanted was the simple things

  Bb                 Cmaj7  C
A simple kind of life

C              C7           F
     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
     I always was the one with all the 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

Dm      C#           C                  B
  If we met tomorrow for the very first time

Dm                 C#                  C               B
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
     How'd I get so faithful to my freedom?
     When all I ever wanted was the simple things
     A simple kind of life
