Simple Kind of Life
(G. Stefani)

For a long time I was in love
Not only in love, I was obsessed
With a friendship that no one else could touch
It didn't work out, I'm covered in shells


And all I wanted was the simple things
A simple kind of life
And all I needed was a simple man
So I could be a wife


I'm so ashamed, I've been so mean
I don't know how it got to this point
I always was the one with all the love
You came along, I'm hunting you down


Like a sick domestic abuser looking for a fight
And all I wanted was the simple things
A simple kind of life


If we met tomorrow for the very first time
Would it start all over again?
Would I try to make you mine?


I always thought I'd be a mom
Sometimes I wish for a mistake
The longer that I wait the more selfish that I get
You seem like you'd be a good dad


Now all those simple things are simply too complicated for my life
How'd I get so faithful to my freedom?
A selfish kind of life
When all I ever wanted was the simple things
A simple kind of life
