lyrics

My path in life was chosen
In a flurry of emotion
You know the music seemed to sweep me off my feet
And I didn’t have much choice
But to follow her clear voice
To try to find the things she had in store for me

I could have been a scientist but I don’t mean to whine
It’s just that I am so much more than what you see
I could have been a million things to gain respect from kings and queens
But I chose a minstrels life
Simple and free simple and free simple and free

I don’t mind the fact these musical notes
Haunt my mind and resonate from my bones
Simple and free is what I said
Simple and free ‘til I’m dead

My path in life was chosen in a flurry of emotion
You know the spirit seemed to take me by the hand
And I didn’t have much choice but to listen for his voice
And try to help my boy as he became a man

I could have been a novelist
Unwinding worlds that don’t exist or a hundred other things I do believe
I could have written you a symphony
Become the queen of everything
But I chose a minstrels life
Simple and free simple and free simple and free

I lost myself inside these musical notes
The melody swells and takes me home
I’ve never been alone
I will always find rest
Simple and free ‘til I’m dead
