"Complicated (Acoustic)" as written by and Benji/madden Madden....
And we've been here for so many years,
Still it seems as if you're not there (are you there)
Every time I talk, you turn away (do you care),
Isn't Dad an obligation to care

And we've been here for so many years,
So many years still it seems,
So complicated, overrated, complicated,
This feeling is low

Well I came in the door, I said it before,
I never let the stress get me down no more
Giving thanks to the Lord, and I pray every day,
Giving shots to my peeps and this is what we said,


You left us one little room with a black and white TV,
One eviction notice, and a bill for therapy,
You're living all alone you're like a dog without a bone,
You're living all alone 'cause you left us all at home,
Well you had a second chance but you threw it all away,
A fourth and fifth and sixth but that was yesterday,
Now you're sitting at a bar just a drowning in your tears,
Lonely in your corner while everybody cheers,

    General CommentBrand New is good but I kinda changed my mind...The Ataris is better than GC and Finch but they all rock :)...I dont like this version, the studio version is much better.
