Lyrics

never too late

Written By: mike benjamin

All, All of these years I’m still here, with you and the times tickin by
Love, Loves all you need, like a seed love needs love to grow right
I hear some say when it’s been too long then it’s time for movin on
We got to try provin them wrong

Never too late to get that love
Never too late you got to rise above
Never too late to get that love
Never too late you got to rise above
To keep that love (Keep that love)

In the blink of an eye children grow, this world passes you by
So don’t turn your back on love, Cause this life without love is a lie
We all got to change just to stay the same through the laughter and pain
We all need a hand in the cold drivin rain

Never too late to get that love
Never too late you got to rise above
Never too late to get that love
Never too late you got to rise above
To keep that love (Keep that love)

Never too late to get that love
Never too late you got to rise above
Never too late to get that love
Never too late you got to rise above

Simple Love

Written By: Michael Benjamin

If the Sky should fall and tumble right down into the sea
There will still be you and me
If the sun should stop it’s burnin and turn just as black as coal
I will walk with you down the darkest road
And if everything you touch should turn to gold
I will drink to you
Because all we really need.
Is a
SIMPLE LOVE

When the tears start fallin and you feel just like your sinkin’ down
I will walk with you to the solid ground
When the lonely night won’t never, never turn to the light of day
Right by your side I will stay
And if you should make the grade
My hat is off to you
Because all we really need.
all we really need
Is a
SIMPLE LOVE, a SIMPLE LOVE, Oh a SIMPLE LOVE

SOLO

Because all we really need, What I really ask from you
All we really need, What I really need from you
All we really need , all I really want from you
Is a

SIMPLE LOVE, a SIMPLE LOVE, a SIMPLE LOVE
A SIMPLE LOVE
