Simple Love Story
by Shai Linne

Album: Storiez
by Shai Linne


Let me tell you about this guy named Jim
A gem when it came to running ball in the gym
A four year scholarship to U.M.
A Terp doing work, nobody could see him
Sophomore year, things got complex for Jim
Conference tournament- he broke his wrist on the rim
Then it came out- an agent had bought him a B.M.
Now Jim's N.B.A. prospects look slim
He's back in the hood running with his man Tim
They're drinking and they're smoking blunts down to the stem
If Jim's not careful, he will be a victim
Another young black male caught in the system
But then, one day, while working out at the gym
He couldn't believe what was standing in front of him
Chocolate honey brown, pretty smile, plus trim
"Excuse me, what's your name?" "Hi, my name is Kim"

Chorus 1
It's just a simple love story y'all
So would you listen up for me, y'all?
And while today is today
Don't let the loneliness take you away
Don't let it take you away

It's just a simple love story, y'all
So would you listen up for me, y'all?
And while today is today
Just let the melody take you away
As we do it like…

Scene 2


Immediate connection between Jim and Kim
Different, yet the same, kind of like a synonym
They started hanging out P.M. to A.M.
The cup of their love was filled up to the brim
In fact, things were going so well between them
In less than a year, Kim had moved in with Jim
But not long after that, their light grew dim
Because Jim and Kim had a big problem
See, Kim felt like Jim was only about Jim
And Jim felt like Kim wanted to change him
Even small things became arguments for them
ike Jim liked whole milk, Kim liked skim
The future for Jim and Kim was looking grim
Their love song was turning into a requiem
But then, one day everything changed for Kim
She heard the gospel and got introduced to Him

Chorus 2
It's just a simple love story y'all
So would you listen up for me, y'all?
And while today is today
Don't let the decadence take you away
Don't let it take you away

It's just a simple love story, y'all
So would you listen up for me, y'all?
And while today is today
Just let the harmony take you away
As we do it like…

Scene 3

Kim had an epiphany when she met Him (Jesus)
The One who literally went out on a limb
to bring sinful men back to Him
New life she received when she believed He did this for Kim
New found joy, she tried to share it with Jim
He wasn't feeling it- He thought it was just a whim
He couldn't front though, something was different about Kim
Because every morning, she was up at 5 A.M.
Faithfully on her face praising Him
Thanking Him for His grace, even praying for Jim
Answer to prayer- Jim gave His life to Him
Advance three months later, Jim's wife was Kim
A love triangle: on the bottom right is Jim
On the bottom left is Kim, at the pinnacle is Him
So the closer Jim gets to Him and Kim gets to Him
The closer Jim gets to Kim and that's the end
Peace...

Chorus 3
It's just a simple love story y'all
So would you listen up for me, y'all?
And while today is today
Don't let the bitterness take you away
Don't let it take you away

It's just a simple love story, y'all
So would you listen up for me, y'all?
And while today is today
Just let the symphony take you away
As we do it like…
