What happened to the simple things?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know?

Somewhere only we know?

I had that song in my head today, well not the song.

It was the line .. I’m getting old and I need … but I couldn’t remember the rest. It was haunting me but I couldn’t place it.

Now I’m reading that line in context and asking myself some difficult questions.

What happened to the simple things?

Not like me to dwell on anything, so I won’t, but sometimes you need to look at where you are to know where you want to go.

Beautiful song, love both versions, the original by Keane and the cover by Lily Allen, I also like the way it was employed in the John Lewis Christmas ad in 2013.
