What's Simple Is True


Turn to me with frozen lips
Your hands are so icy cold
Your eyes burn bright against the frost-bit sky
You never seemed more lovely than you do tonight
Pale on the horizon
Like leaves frozen in the snow
Our two shadows merge inserparably
Will time stand still if it's pierced with cold?
The more I live
The more I know 
What's simple is true
I love you
There's a warmth in my heart
It haunts me when you're gone
Mend me to your side and never let go 
Say "Time knows nothing, we'll never grow cold"
The more I live
The more I know
What's simple is true
I love you 
Twilight descends on our silhouette
How soon spring comes
How soon spring forgets
I wanna hold time, say it'll never begin
Old man winter be our friend
Old man winter be our friend
'Cause the more I live
The more I know
What's simple is true
What's simple is true
I love, 
I love you

 

There are 3 significantly different studio versions

of "What's Simple Is True". They are:
 
1) The original album version. This was
recorded & mixed during the 1998 sessions for
Jewel's 2nd album "Spirit". For all future reference
purposes, known as "the album version".
 
2) The radio remix version. This is the single version.
This was remixed in 1999 & released as a radio single.
(For collectors, the single was only released to radio
stations & is catalogued as Atlantic PRCD 9044.) This
version is also the one used in two significant
other places: It's the version used for the video of
the song (as shown on MTV) AND is the same version on
the "Ride With The Devil" movie soundtrack CD. For all future
reference purposes, known as "the single version".
 
3) The "RWTD" version. This is the version that plays
while the credits are rolling in the movie. It's yet
another mix with somewhat different instrumentation
than the single version. Surprisingly, it's NOT the
version on the soundtrack CD & is only available
on the movie itself while the credits roll. For all future
reference purposes, known as "the movie version"
(even though it is not the version on the soundtrack CD).
