Jane Birkin – The Simple Story lyrics

The little thoughts came rushing in
Was I watched for a sign from him
When all the while was clear as day
That I should go and he should stay

I took his love like it was mine
I squeezed the truth until it lied
It took some time for cracks to show
Should I stay or should he go?

The simple story that you told me
Is a little different from what you showed me
The simple story, unfurling slowly
Is if you lay down with a dream you'll wake up lonely

The fog will cast a certain shade
So what you see is how what's made
It's mark will show you what to do
When hope pretends it's made you new

Love lied
Love lied
But I'm the reason
Love died

The simple story that you told me
Is a little different than what you showed me

The sky wraps round the mountaintops
The watch unwinds until it stops
Some things will always be the way they are
And that is how they'll stay

The simple story that you told me
Is a little different from what you showed me
The simple story, unfurling slowly
Is if you lay down with a dream you'll wake up lonely
