I miss Stacie Orrico.  I love her voice and songs.  So one day I’ve tried to listen to her album and it reminded me of my favorite songs like Strong Enough, I’m not missing you and So Simple.

Funny thing is I feel like So Simple is trying to tell me something.  I’m currently not-so-happy with what I’m getting and where I am.  I’m not usually like this, I’m easily pleased, I don’t usually demand.  In fact, I’m submissive and even there’s something that I want and my partner says no, I’d accept it as it is without debating and blinking an eye.

But there’s a catch like the song So Simple, I just want it simple.  I just want to feel something that’s real and unfortunately lately I just don’t feel the love.  There’s no warmth considering I just came from 3 weeks vacation.  And it gets more frustrating when I hear other friends’ longing for my presence.

You see, I don’t need big gestures.  I don’t need an hour-to-hour updates. Or surprise visits or gifts or tokens.  I just want it simple.  True to life and true to me.

“So Simple”

(It could all be so simple, simple)

Don’t need high heels
For a good feel
You can keep the fancy clothes
I’ll take walkin in the rain
Over things material
I’ll trade Melrose and the big names
Give me faces that I know
Just play a melody that everybody knows

Take it down, down, down
And strip it to the core
I don’t really need much less is more, more, more

True to life, true to me
The way it’s got to be
So simple, so simple, so simple
Live to love, love to be
Absolutely free
(so simple, so simple, simple)

Give me wisdom, plain and truthful
Teach me somethin I don’t know
Plain as education, inspiration I suppose (yeah yeah)
Give me family, on a Sunday
And I’ll be just fine
There’s nothing in the world
That’s worth more of my time

Take it down, down, down
And strip it to the core
I don’t really need much less is more, more, more


Livin my dream, is my song to the world
(let ’em hear it)
Sharin’ my soul and spirit
I’m hopin that you hear it
Got one (one) life (life) to live (live)
It’s only what you make it (make it)
Every new day’s a chance worth takin
