SIMPLE PEOPLE

By Jim Belleau

(original version)

Inner fires, inner light
Your eyes so brightly lit
I know that heat, I know that fight
I'm here to tell you how to go
We are together, it's always so

I see the mountain, it's so high
Shoulder to shoulder you stand with I
Don't look down, it propped you up
That mountain's there 'cause of your light and touch
In your shining light and fire
It's under you 'cause you're the higher

[CHORUS]
Simple people smiling right
Simple people standing high
With your eyes burning bright
On the mountain above the sky

Don't you worry ever more
Never think that you're alone
'Cause you made that mountain home
Feel my touch upon your brow
Feel my kiss this way how
I now am love, I love you more
Than you can know through your small door

Touch my hand, kiss my lips
Hug me full and never cease
I am here always seen
Through the feelings of a king!

I am here to stay and never go
For me to hug you and you to know
I am love and so are you
I am here to comfort You and You

[CHORUS]


But best of all to feel our love
An easy test of one and all
'Cause we are kings and now you'll know
I had that feeling as I stood tall

I found it for us, my songs unlocked
The greatest union of love and trust
No longer the blues as I once talked
The rhythm gave as it always must

I am in this place forever more
But you're here too, there is no door
My touch is real, my hug complete
You've always had what made me sweet

[CHORUS]

It's so easy, never tire
'Cause I am here with you in this fire
Light of which is in your eyes
You feel me now, give me your higher

We walk together arm in arm
It's love around us, there's never harm
Trusting me, I am trusting you
Our love's complete through and through

No need to leave me 'cause I am here
Twenty-four seven in your heaven

[CHORUS]

It's through your emotions that I am felt
You let me in so we can touch
There is no notion that can stand
It's here we dwell, extend your hand

Turn to me any time
I am here for you still in my prime
Safe-ty's there, it always will
because the time is standing still
It's under us not in the way
Time deceives, I take it away

Feel my touch, now you know how
This new way is what I bring now
Sure as music I once wrote
The ark of love is my boat

Burning, burning, burning bright
From eyes so lovely such a light
Filling me with that same fire
As we mix in our desire

[CHORUS]

[CHORUS]

SIMPLE PEOPLE SMILING BRIGHT
SIMPLE PEOPLE STANDING HIGH
WITH YOUR EYES BURNING BRIGHT
ON A MOUNTAIN ABOVE THE SKY

INNER FIRE INNER LIGHT
YOUR EYES SO BRIGHTLY LIT
I KNOW THAT HEAT
I KNOW THAT LIGHT
I'M HERE TO TELL YOU HOW TO GO
WE ARE TOGETHER IT'S ALWAYS SO

I SEE THE MOUNTAIN IT'S SO WIDE
SHOULDER TO SHOULDER YOU'RE STANDING WITH I
DON'T YOU LOOK DOWN IT'S PROPPING YOU UP
THAT MOUNTAIN'S THERE CAUSE OF YOUR LIGHT AND TOUCH
IN YOUR SHINING LIGHT AND FIRE
IT'S ONLY YOU CAUSE YOU ARE HIGHER

[CHORUS]

TOUCH MY HAND
KISS MY LIPS
HUG ME FULL
NEVER CEASE
I'M FEELING LIKE A KING
I'M HERE TO STAY NEVER GO
FOR YOU TO COME TO ME AND KNOW
I'M LOVE AND SO ARE YOU
I'M HERE TO COMFORT YOU AND YOU

DON'T YOU WORRY
NEVER FEAR YOU ARE ALONE
CAUSE YOU HAVE MADE THAT MOUNTAIN HOME
FEEL MY TOUCH UPON YOUR BROW
FEEL MY KISS AND NOW I'M LOVE
I LOVE YOU MORE
I LOVE YOU MORE AND MORE
THAN YOU COULD EVER KNOW

[CHORUS]


INNER FIRE INNER LIGHT
YOUR EYES SO BRIGHTLY LIT
I KNOW THAT HEAT
I KNOW THAT LIGHT
I'M HERE TO TELL YOU HOW TO GO
WE ARE TOGETHER IT'S ALWAYS SO
