"Complicated" as written by Jon Bon Jovi, Martin Karl Sandberg and Billy Falcon....
Take a look around, this is what I see
Is there anybody else that feels like me, yeah
You sweat, you sweat, you bleed, you bleed
What you get ain't what you see
Up is down and black is white to me

I'm complicated, I get frustrated
Right or wrong, love or hate it
I'm complicated, you can't sedate it
I heard that song but I won't play it
It's alright, it's OK, you wouldn't want me any other way
Momma, keep on praying cause I ain't changin'
I'm complicated, yeah
I'm complicated, yeah

I'm smart enough to know what I don't know
I'm fool enough to stay when I should go
You work, you work, you cry, you cry
You watch your whole life pass you by
Sometimes you've got to close your eyes to see

I'm complicated, I get frustrated
Right or wrong, love or hate it
I'm complicated, you can't sedate it
Heard that song but I won't play it
It's alright, it's OK, you wouldn't want me any other way
Momma, keep on praying cause I ain't changin'
I'm complicated, yeah
I'm complicated, yeah

Is there anybody out there?
Just like everybody out there
Just one somebody out there, Just like me

I'm complicated, I get frustrated
Right or wrong, love or hate it
I'm complicated, you can't sedate it
I heard that song but I won't play it
It's alright, it's okay, you wouldn't want me any other way
Momma, keep on praying, cause I ain't changin'
I'm complicated, I get frustrated
Right or wrong, love or hate it
I'm complicated, you can't sedate it
Heard that song but I won't play it

Is there anybody out there?
Just like everybody out there
Just one somebody out there
Just like me
Is there anybody out there
Just like everybody out there
Just one somebody out there
Just like me
I'm complicated

    General CommentGod! As a Lawyer I am working so god damn hard that only this song can explain my situation right now.

    ¨I'm smart enough to know what I don't know
    I'm fool enough to stay when I should go
    You work, you work, you cry, you cry
    You watch your whole life pass you by
    Sometimes you've got to close your eyes to see.¨

    I think this song is about going forward even when all the hope has gone and you´re playing the role of underdog every day, every week!

    I also think it´s about love dissapoinment .

    ¨It's alright, it's OK, you wouldn't want me any other way¨

    General Commentthis song is about standing your ground without giving a shit as to what other people say or do... "I'm complicated, you can't sedate it"... the guy's got a take it or leave it kinda attitude, which totally rocks
