"Complicated" 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

[Chorus]
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,

[Chorus]

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,

[Chorus]

    General CommentThe chorus reminds me of my class and how we've been together for over eight years yet we still can't get along and we're about to graduate. The rest of the song, I just like.

    General Commenti love where it says:

    "i never let the stress get me down no more, giving thanks to the Lord you know I pray every day"

    because I know how awesome it is to have given your life over to Lord. I am never stressed out over the little things (or big things) in life anymore, because I know that whatever happens I still have the most important thing in the world, Jesus and his promise of eternal life. That is the one thing that no one can EVER take away from me!!!!!!!! And while I'm still living here on earth I can turn to God to guide me, so that i can expereince his plan for me, which is better than anything i can do myself!!!!!!!
