LYRICS: The Shins

“Simple Song”

Two years ago, right around this time of year, I wrote about the lyrics of this song. I was listening intently to it the other day and I really think it’s worth a re-post.

James Mercer is probably one of my favorite songwriters. The opening lines of this tune are simple (no pun intended), but they strike me as so powerful…and so romantic! I can’t say I’m looking forward to Valentine’s day this year, but this particular love song really makes me smile:

“Well this is just a simple song, to say what you done
I told you ’bout all those fears, and away they did run
You sure must be strong
And you feel like an ocean made warm by the sun”
