or
Danny Gokey

Looking down out of this little round window
On silver wings at 20,000 feet
Where lakes and streams and fields of green
I tend to think the most peculiar things

Ribbons of highways, side roads and byways
People going all ways, always in a hurry
Gotta get there, but just where, from up here
I'm not sure, where it's all going or what it all means

But sometimes I think, it's just a simple thing
I close my eyes and I realize all I really need
Is a love I had, and the love I had to give
Anything else there is, is insignificant
In this tiny life.

Waves hit the runways, some days run in to some days
And some days are better than some days
Can't see the sky, sky scrapers too high
30 second day dream at another red light
I'm back in my hometown of roads that we rode down
Those sights and sounds are just yesterdays love
There's deadlines and stress lines and too much on my mind
I'm getting it all, but what's it all for

Sometimes I think, it's just a simple thing
I close my eyes and I realize all I really need
Is a love I had, and the love I had to give
Cause anything else there is, is insignificant
In this tiny life.

The love we make, the dreams we share
The friends we have in our short time here
It's knowing Gods grace, the touch of a hand
Holding a baby, calling mom and dad
It's making the most of the moments we have
And getting to live long enough to look back
On the years, the sweet tears of joy and laughter
It's all that really matters ooh, yea, yea

Sometimes I think, it's just a simple thing
I close my eyes and I realize all I really need
Is a love I had, and the love I had to give
Cause anything else there is, is insignificant
It doesn't matter, in this tiny life.
