Story Behind the Song

I used to see this girl on campus - she was always sweet, but had an underlying sadness in her eyes. Walking back from having skipped Chem. class one day, I ran into her - and her sadness tugged at my heart - I got to my apartment and wrote this song. Th

Lyrics

SIMPLE AS I AM
(Nkeng Alemanji)

(Verse 1)
YOU?VE SACRIFICED TOO MUCH IN CRYING
YOU?RE LOST AND NO ONE UNDERSTANDS
IT SEEMS HE?S LEFT YOU FOR GOOD THIS TIME
HE?S LEFT YOU FOR GOOD
AND YOU DON?T KNOW WHY

(Chorus)
CAN I CALL YOU UP AND TALK TO YOU
SIMPLE AS I AM
CAN I TAKE YOU OUT SOME DAY OR NIGHT
FOR COFFEE OR A DANCE
CAN I CALL YOU UP AND TALK TO YOU
SIMPLE AS I AM SOMETIME

(Verse 2)
IF I COULD MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND
HOW MUCH I LONG TO BE YOUR MAN
IF I COULD TAKE AWAY THOSE GHOULISH CRIES
IF I COULD MAKE IT SO YOU?D BE FINE

(Chorus)
CAN I CALL YOU UP AND TALK TO YOU
SIMPLE AS I AM
CAN I TAKE YOU OUT SOME DAY OR NIGHT
FOR COFFEE OR A DANCE
CAN I CALL YOU UP AND TALK TO YOU
SIMPLE AS I AM SOMETIME

(Bridge)
I KNOW THIS MAY SOUND AS THOUGH I AM LONELY WANTING YOU SO BAD
BUT I SEE YOU AROUND AND I WISH YOU WERE MINE WHY ARE YOU SO SAD
YOU?RE LIKE AN ANGEL WITH A GLOWING HALO
BUT THERE?S SADNESS IN YOUR EYES - WHAT?S YOUR NAME

(Chorus)
CAN I CALL YOU UP AND TALK TO YOU
SIMPLE AS I AM
CAN I TAKE YOU OUT SOME DAY OR NIGHT
FOR COFFEE OR A DANCE
CAN I CALL YOU UP AND TALK TO YOU
SIMPLE AS I AM SOMETIME

(Closing)
YOU?VE SACRIFICED TOO MUCH IN CRYING
YOU?RE LOST AND NO ONE UNDERSTANDS
IT SEEMS HE?S LEFT YOU FOR GOOD THIS TIME
HE?S LEFT YOU FOR GOOD
AND YOU DON?T KNOW WHY
DON?T CRY (NOT A, NOT A TEAR)
SO I WANNA CALL YOU UP, I WANNA TALK TO YOU SIMPLE, SIMPLE, SIMPLE AS I AM?
