J lind, and r page

Show me the magic
I must've lost it somewhere
In my dreams, so far away
I turned around, everything's changing but me
Where is the soul in my song?

Once there was heaven in my eyes
Whatever happened to those skies?
Somebody show me how to
Get back to the simple life

Out of the blue, temptation's all around me
The train came along and I got on board
I danced with the darkness
The skies were the limit
It's such a long way to fall

Once there was heaven in my eyes
Whatever happened to those skies?
Somebody show me how to
Get back to the simple life

'cause I've done my time in paradise
I've tried it all maybe once or twice
Somebody show me how to
Get back to the simple life

Stars keep me going
And the moon is there to light my way
I need to go where my heart is free
Looking for the way back
Hoping for the way back
Somebody show me how to
Get back to ... the simple life

'cause I've done my time in paradise
I've tried to all maybe once or twice
Somehow the grass was always greener
On the other side

Once there was heaven in my eyes
Whatever happened to those skies?
Somebody show me how to
Get back to the simple life
