Look around and what do you see,
Look for the mountains, where could they be,
Look for the fields, where could they be,
Look for the stars, where could they be,
Look and long, and never see.
Look around and see the houses,
Look around and see the highways,
Look around and see the skyscrapers,
Look around and see the city,
Look around and see the smog, the trash,
Look around and always see.
You long for that simpler side of life,
You long to have everything the land can offer,
You long to know your neighbors,
You long to raise your children somewhere safe,
You long for somewhere to grow old and live happily.
A tractor spurs an idea,
A barn kicks off a dream,
A plot of land lights a fire,
A love of life and living,
becomes that reality.
A simpler life of joy and freedom,
A simpler life of togetherness and love,
A simpler life of caring for your family,
A simper life.
A simpler life that few choose to live, and love.
