So Much Simpler Then

(Play Track.)

There was a time when you thought that you could do anything
Things were so much simpler then
Now you're busy fixing other people's heat and air conditioning
Questioning everything
 
Things were so much simpler then
On your way to meet her dad and step mom
Things were so much simpler then
Kinda worried bout the draft and the atom bomb
Wondering how far she'd let you go after the prom
 
The kids are waiting for the bus and the fish have not been fed
Things were so much simpler then
You wake up down the street in a crazy woman's waterbed
Over things that never get said
 
Things were so much simpler then
Watching reruns of The Monkees and Star Trek
Things were so much simpler then
Wanting nothing but to kiss her long neck
Never knowing that in time you'd only be the family paycheck
 
But what about the children?
Do you think they'll be OK without you?
What you gonna tell them with everything they hear about you?
Oh no Oh no
Oh no
 
On your way back through the house you see the picture from your wedding day
Things were so much simpler then
You never would have thought everything would go so far astray
Maybe you did and you just didn't say
