In a Simple rhyme......this turned out brilliant, thanks for the fantastic contributions  from everyone involved.

Special thanks to NickT for an amazing mix.

Simple (116bpm) (3:40)
Intro: E G#m C#m G#m
            E            G#m
I can express myself
C#m                      F#m
With a thousand words
          F#m7        B                      E                     G#m
I can fill up the spaces with a lot of garbled rhyme
E                    G#m
We all like to hide
     C#m                        F#m
Behind the walls we make
       F#m7               B           E                     G#m
We don’t want to let onto how we really feel
     F#m7               B           
So this is what I feel
               F#m7                   B           
Will you help me make it real
E           
Simple
                      G#m
Let’s keep it simple
            C#m7
Is all I plead
   F#m7                 B                   E               B
If we can keep it simple we’ll get somewhere

We can meet and talk
Not saying what we feel
We can wear a mask beneath this sunny smile
You and I are guilty of
Of making things too dense
We all fail to see the wood from the trees
So this is what we’ll do
Will you help me put it to use
Simple
Let’s keep it simple
Is all I plead
If we can keep it simply we’re halfway there

Solo: Based on E  C#m  E G#m E B chords

If we could speak our hearts
Straight and to the point
We wouldn’t be at cross purposes today
At times we overthink
And make things so much worse
The threats are in our heads only imagined
So this is what I choose
Will you help me put it to use
Simple
Let’s keep it simple
Is all I plead
If we can keep it simple we’ll get somewhere
E7
Simple
                      G#m7
Let’s keep it simple
            C#m7
Is all I plead
   F#m7                  B                     E            B
If we can keep it simple we’re halfway there

Hi Nick,

This has super performances from everyone, but your mix took this song to another level - sublime.

Absolutely love all the mix choices, specially treatment of the vocals. The guitars mesh seamlessly with the rhythm section.

Mark as fab ?:)
