Intro:  
verse 1: 
Show me the magic 
I must've lost it somewhere 
In my dreams, so far away 
I turned around, everything's changing but me 
Where is the soul in my song?  
Once there was heaven in my eyes 
Whatever happened to those skies?  
Somebody show me how to 
Get back to the simple life 
Interlude 1: 
verse 2: 
Out of the blue 
Temptation's all around me 
The train came along and I got on board 
I danced with the darkness 
The skies were the limit 
It's such a long way to fall 
Once there was heaven in my eyes 
Whatever happened to those skies?  
Somebody show me how to 
Get back to the simple life 
'cause I've done my time in paradise 
I've tried it all maybe once or twice 
Somebody show me how to 
Get back to the simple life 
Bridge: 
Stars keep me going 
And the moon is there to light my way 
I need to go where my heart is free 
Looking for the way back, hoping for the way back 
(Instrumental lead-in over Chorus chords) 
Somebody show me how to 
Get back to the simple life 
'cause I've done my time in paradise 
I've tried it all maybe once or twice 
Somehow the grass was always greener 
On the other side 
Once there was heaven in my eyes 
Whatever happened to those skies?  
Somebody show me how to 
Get back to the simple life 
I've tried it all maybe once or twice 
Somebody show me show show show me 
A simple life 
Once there was heaven in my eyes 
Once there was heaven in my eyes 
Somebody show me, show me... (Fade out)
