Open my eyes, welcome the day
Oh, what a night, hungover again
My body still flows, yet I was on fire
I think I made a date but will I keep it

No, I bet I don't 'cause it goes on and on and on
And I never seem to learn
'Cause I'm happy being stuck in my ways
I don't mean to sound a fool but I got plenty things to do
This life is just for living

Too many times I've heard the sweetest lies
They're always sweeter than the truth
I don't really wanna know, oh, let the sun through my window
Never let love leave you blind
It's my simple philosophy of life, life

If you opened up this can of worms
Here in my heart these lessons you'd learn
They would pour and pour and pour
So if I seem vague, I apologize
'Cause I don't wanna change for anyone
Oh, I've seen it all before and it always ends the same

Too many times I've heard the sweetest lies
They're always sweeter than the truth
I don't really wanna know, oh, let the sun through my window
Never let love leave you blind
It's my simple philosophy of life, life
Oh, yeah, that's my simple philosophy

I've heard the sweetest lies
They're always sweeter than the truth
I don't really wanna know, oh, let the sun through my window
Never let love leave you blind

Too many times I've heard the sweetest lies
They're always sweeter than the truth
(Good, sweetest lies)
I don't really wanna know, oh, let the sun through my window
Never let love leave you blind, never
It's my simple philosophy of life, life

It's my simple philosophy
It's my simple philosophy
Yeah, yeah, philosophy
