A Simple Life
Here To Play

I wrote this song while spending time at the cabin my grandparents
owned in Maine.  One of my favorite activities is sitting on the dock and
listening to the loons sounding their low whistling calls to each other.  

I am most at peace when the hustle and bustle of everyday life is kept at
an arms length.  This can happen when I am hiking in the mountains,
swimming in the ocean or just by going for a run in the woods near my
home.  

Simple Life by Tim Seston

I think that I was born to sing this song for you today
I think that I was born to sing and laugh and dance and play
Yes, I think I was born to soak up lots of golden sun
I think I was born to have a little bit more fun

So take me to the mountains and find a winding stream
Build myself a campfire and do a little dreaming
I'll stare into the embers while I whittle with my knife
Take me to a place where I can lead a simple life

I think that I was born to sing this song for you today
I think that I was born to sing and laugh and dance and play
Yes, I think I was born to soak up lots of golden sun
I think I was born to have a little bit more fun

Take me to the ocean with its tides and sandy dunes
Or take me to a lake where I can listen to the loons
I don’t want to be encumbered by unhappiness and strife
Take me to a place where I can lead a simple life

I want to live more peacefully
Take a breath and sit beneath a tree
Let the wind wind all around my soul
A simple life - that is my goal

If I must be in the city then please take me to a park
That’s where I can climb and slide and swing until its dark
I want to be accompanied by my children and my wife
Take me to a place where I can lead a simple life

I think that I was born to sing this song for you again
I think that I was born to sing it eight, nine times or ten
Yes, I think I was born to soak up lots of golden sun
I think I was born to have a little bit more fun
