Simple-looking Guy

Hey, you
Simple-looking guy
Stand up
Take a breath and sigh
Embrace
All your pain inside
‘Cause it won’t go away
With the gentleness of your smile

Hey, you
Simple-looking guy
Speak up
There’s so much to clarify
Don’t think
Don’t even use your head
Just speak and let it flow
Say how much your heart has bled

Simple-looking guy
Yet so intricate inside
Please make them understand
How your loneliness survived
Try to make it clear
That what you hold so dear
Has left
And you, simple-looking guy
Can’t speak
Or breathe
Or take one step

And so you just be
Who you’re supposed to be
Who you seem to be
Just that simple-looking guy
Sitting next to me

Hey, you
Simple-looking guy
Cheer up
Without a reason why
Just laugh
Or smile at me that way
And for a moment, please forget
The loneliness of your day

Hey, you
Simple-looking guy
Hey, you
Man who doesn’t cry
Don’t speak
Don’t even say a word
‘Bout how painful it all is
How all of life has blurred

Just be
Who you’re supposed to be
Who you seem to be
Just that simple-looking guy
Sitting next to me
