It's about writing simple songs


It's the same song
You've heard a thousand times before
Some broken heart melody
and three simple chords

Some lonely eyed loser
Feet dragging on the floor
Finds himself a cheap guitar
And finds three simple chords

Not made for the army
Won't fight in any war
Fighting for something else
With just three simple chords

Says he's gonna run away
Can't take it anymore
We're all running from something
To these three simple chords

I'm feeling the minor highs
I'm such a major whore
You've got me feeing diminished
With just three simple chords
So I think I'm gonna run away
I can't take it any more
We got so much more complicated
Than three simple chords

I don't believe in Jesus
I don't believe in your lord
But I believe in a lot of things
And three of them are chords

That's why I'm doing this
Do I need to tell you anymore?
Ok then give me a minute
And give me three simple chords


I'm not saying he won't love you
I'm just saying I could have loved you more
But you'll never mean as much to me
as these three simple chords
