Simple Things
Usher Lyrics


Yeah, uh
They say money can't buy you love
They say money can't buy you love
They never seem to listen
I'm all ears

Just copped your girl a brand new Rolex
But you can never find the time to spend at home
Thinking that's gon' keep her happy
When time is all she wanted all along

It's the simple things in life we forget, uh
You hear her talking, but don't hear what she said, yeah
Why do you make something so easy so complicated?
Searching for what's right in front of your face
But you can't see it

So you think that you know what's important, uh
Steady chasing your fame and your fortune
But you don't know you're chasing a dime, losing a treasure
Those dollars don't make sense to me at all
Oh, it goes (duh da, duh da)
You give her spending money (duh da, duh da)
But all she wanna spend is time alone (tonight)
Keep giving her (the finer things, but)
But she don't really need that (if you don't stop, you're)
You're gonna end up alone (alone)
In a world without love (duh duh da, duh da)
Why would you do it?

It's the simple things in life we forget, uh
You hear her talking, but don't hear what she said, yeah
Why do you make something so easy so complicated?
Searching for what's right in front of your face
But you can't see it

It's the simple things in life we forget
You hear her talking, but don't hear what she said
Why do you make something so easy so complicated?
Searching for what's right in front of your face
But you can't see it (listen)

Stop tryna buy her love
'Cause you won't ever have enough
There's always someone with more than you
You need to pay her attention
Give her what she needs
Do the simple things
Before you lose your girl to me

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah, yeah
Play on, playa
Yeah, your girl coming with me shorty, haha
I'm telling you, man
'Cause you know

It's the simple things in life we forget, uh
You hear her talking, but don't hear what she said, yeah
Why do you make something so easy so complicated?
Searching for what's right in front of your face
But you can't see it

You better look out
I hear you talking, I hear you talking, ha
But what are you saying?
Oh ho, oh ho
Don't be a fool, you got a good thing
Man, are you blind, stupid or crazy?
You got a good thing, uh
You got a good thing
If that's your lady, you better hold on
And give her what she want before she move on
Man, I'm tellin' you, cars, clothes, and fancy things don't mean a damn thing
If you ain't kicking it, baby

It's the simple things in life we forget, uh
You hear her talking, but don't hear what she said, yeah
Why do you make something so easy so complicated?
Searching for what's right in front of your face
But you can't see it
Don't let this be that thing you'll always regret, your love
It's right there, right there

i miss when music used to have a message like this

@fortune sanga it's sad bc they don't even know what they're missing. Im tryna bring back real music but without equipment and a studio it's hard to get ppl to listen. Some day though.

fortune sanga

All they got now is drug abusers and strippers making music for the kids😔

Ms.Sexy85 Davis
