Barefoot Truth

I Prefer

Play

I prefer walking rather than
running down the street,
I prefer smiling rather than frowning
at the people I might see
If it were up to you would you
look at it the same?
Or would you close your eyes,
have no voice of opinion
of what lies before you? shame on you
Cause I say woah something's gotta give
I need a simpler life to live,
Woah look inside yourself
You best find a better way to measure wealth

Cause it's a simple life for a simple race,
beneath the stars is where we find our place
It's a simple love I'm gonna spread your way
it's a simple life just living it day to day.

I prefer climbing rather than falling from a tree
I prefer singing rather than whispering silently
If it were up to you would you look at it the same? Or
would You close your eyes
and have no voice of opinion
of what lies before you? Shame on you

Cause it's a simple life for a simple race,
beneath the stars is where we find our place
It's a simple love I'm gonna spread your way
it's a simple life just living it day to day.

I prefer helping rather than acting helplessly
I prefer living ain't that the way it's supposed to be?
If it were up to you would you look at it the same?
Or would you close your eyes
and have no voice of opinion
of what lies before you? Shame on you

Cause it's a simple life for a simple race,
beneath the stars is where we find our place
It's a simple love I'm gonna spread your way
it's a simple life just living it day to day.

It's a simple life I'm gonna spread around,
it's a feeling of elation you could get me down
It's a simple world gonna make a stand
it's a simple life
just living it the best we can
