A Simple Man lyrics

Music by elton john
Lyrics by gary osborne
Released as a uk b-side in 1984

Im a simple man with a simple dream
In a far from simple time
And I payed the price of the road I chose
But at least the choice was mine

And the times I get the feeling
That the journeys end is near
But I prefer to die with my head held high
Than to live my life in fear

Im a simple man from a time gone by
Growing cold and old alone
Theres a time to run and a time to hide
And a time to head for home

To forgive and be forgiven
If its the last thing I can do
Then in deaths release I may find the peace
That in life I never knew

cause Im a simple man with a simple dream
I may never see come true
