Simpler Times

Simpler Times
Words and music by Stuart Reedy

When I was in gradeschool and they said there was no Santa Claus
I couldn’t understand how someone I had called my friend could cause me pain

And I heard a voice say,
Embrace this love; Embrace this life
You may find magic if you believe
Don’t be afraid to be yourself
I can’t imagine who else you would be

Starin’ out across the old Atlantic in the Summer months
Brings back sudden memories of family and simpler times

And I think to myself,
Embrace this love; Embrace this life
You may find magic if you believe
Don’t be afraid to be yourself
I can’t imagine who else you would be

Since I never made my fame and fortune playin’ rock and roll
I let my hair grow out and one day found myself incredibly lost

And now I’m singin’,
Embrace this love; Embrace this life
You may find magic if you believe
Don’t be afraid to be yourself
I can’t imagine who else you would be

Sing it with me,
Embrace this love; Embrace this life
You may find magic if you believe
Don’t be afraid to be yourself
I can’t imagine who else you would be
