This song drew me in from the very beginning. Starts of with a conversation with a friend whose "ship hasn't come in" and from that point paints a beautiful picture of a contented heart. I really love this song! My favorite lyric was the one about not climbing the corporate ladder but I can pay my bills. Reminds me of the scripture "Give me neither poverty nor riches"...somewhere right in the middle. I also liked the part about the "woman who believes in me even when I don't have a plan" (good choice for rhyming with man). There's not a thing I would change about this amazing chorus. A great song teaches a lesson and this one should be sung and heard a lot. I can't say enough good things about it. Fantastic job, and I definitely want to hear more of your work.

Cool intro, laid back. Great band, you aren't a beginner. Keep up the great work.

Lyrics

Just The Way They Are
© 2011 Nick Berry

Drinkin' my morning coffee.
Talkin' with a friend.
He's goin' on 'bout wondering,
When his ship's gonna finally come in.

I act like I'm listening,
While I'm thinking' quietly.
Is that what really matters?
I thought the best things in life were free.

(Chorus):

'Cause I don't have a lot of money.
I don't drive no fancy car.
I don't spend my Friday nights,
Buyin' rounds down at the Bar.
It ain't what's in your wallet.
It's what you got in your heart.
Yeah, You can call me a simple Man,
'Cause I like things just the way they are.

I've got some good friends,
That like me for who I am.
And a Woman that believes in me,
Even when I don't have a plan.

I'll probably never be famous.
Or live in a house up on the hill.
I might never climb that corporate ladder,
But I can sure pay my bills.

(Chorus II):

I'll never have a lot of money.
I'll never own a fancy car.
You'll never see me on Friday nights,
Buyin' rounds down at the Bar.
It ain't what's in your wallet,
It's what you got in your heart.
Yeah, You can call me a simple Man,
'Cause I like things just the way they are. (rpt. last 2 lines at end).
