"Simple Song" is a song by American recording artist Miley Cyrus from her second studio album, Breakout (2008). A Jazz-rock-influence, pop rock song that follows standard pop melodies and order, "Simple Song" has a 'bile sound' that lyrically explains moments in coming of age where a person "can't tell which way is up, which way is down" and they feel the need to alienate themselves. The song was never released but is the 10th track on the album.

Background, Recording, CompositionEdit

"Simple Song" has a Beatles-influenced sound to it, with hints of Jazz-rock while bearing strong and prominent Pop rock and Pop tones and is lyrically about moments in coming of age where a person "can't tell which way is up, which way is down" and they feel the need to alienate themselves, as well as the love of music, and considers a simple song the only way she can escape the pressure of growing. It was written by Jeffrey Steele and Jesse Littleton, while being produced by Anne Preven and Scott Cutler, and was recorded in 2008.

LyricsEdit

Wake up here I go
Cram it all down my throat
Stomach so full
That I wish I could choke
Seven am my heads
Already in a spin
As soon as
I'm out that door bam
Hits me like a ton
Of those red bricks
Can't dig myself
Out of this highest ditch
This madness
I swear sometimes
I can't tell which way is up
Which way is down
It's all up in my face
Need to push it away
Some body push it away
So all that I can hear
Is a simple song
Sing along now
La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la

Mid day sun
Beatin' on the concrete
Burnin' up my feet
Too many cars on the street
The noise, the red, the green
It makes me wanna scream
5 o'clock knocks
Bumper on bumper on bumper
Horns honkin nobodys
Lookin' but everybody's talkin
It's another day on this highway
I swear sometimes
I can't tell which way is up
Which way is down it's
All up in my face
I need to push it away
Somebody push it away
Cause all I wanna hear
It's a simple song
Sing along now
La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la
Sing along now
Sing along

What I'd give to turn it off
Make it stop make it stop
Gotta make it stop
So all that I can hear
Is a simple song
Sing along now
La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la
La, da, da, da
La, da, da, la, la
La, da, da, da
