Simple Time and Place

Lyrics & Music by George Douglas Lee

 

I want to be with you when you feel - you can deal – with what is real 

I wish that I had known you as a child,

When the wonders of the world would make you smile

Those bitter eyes have seen a life of laughter turned to sighs 

You need someone to believe in, something pure and fine

 

I want to take you to a simple time and place,

Just lie beside me, darlin’, you’re safe in my embrace

I will erase the lines of living from your sweet angelic face

Somewhere in our lifetime, we will find - a simple time and place

 

I wish that I had known you in the younger years,

Before the tears, you would’ve had no fear

A broken heart will heal in time and love will come again

Open up your heart, hold me close and let me in

 

I want to take you to a simple time and place,

Just lie beside me, darlin’, wake me up in your embrace

I will erase the lines of living from your sweet angelic face

Somewhere in our lifetime, we will find - a simple time and place

 

Holding you tonight is right where I need to be

I’ll chase away the ghosts that keep you – from trusting me 

Give me the chance to make your dreams reality 

 

I’m living for your loving and what loving you can be…

 

There was a time when you had hope and innocence,

Love was more than dreaming, everything made sense

Please believe me when I say it’s not too late to try again

My only true regret is that I didn’t know you then

 

I want to take you to a simple time and place,

Just lie beside me, darlin’, wake me up in your embrace

I will erase the lines of living from your sweet angelic face

Somewhere baby, we will find - a simple time and place

 

I look into your eyes and I see beauty, charm and grace

I know that I’m already in that simple time and place
