"Complicated" as written by and David Scott Alspach Avril Ramona Lavigne....
Uh huh, life's like this
Uh huh, uh huh, that's the way it is
'Cause life's like this
Uh huh, uh huh that's the way it is

Chill out, what you yelling for?
Lay back, it's all been done before
And if, you could only let it be, you will see
I like, you the way you are
When we're, driving in your car
And you're, talking to me one on one but you become

Somebody else
'Round everyone else
You're watching your back
Like you can't relax
You're trying to be cool
You look like a fool to me
Tell me

Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated
Life's like this you
And you fall, and you crawl, and you break
And you take, what you get, and you turn it into
Honesty and promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it
No, no, no

You come, over unannounced
Dressed up, like you're something else
Where you aren't where it's at you see
You're making me
Laugh out, when you strike your pose
Take off, all your preppy clothes
You know, you're not fooling anyone
When you become

Somebody else
'Round everyone else
You're watching your back
Like you can't relax
You're trying to be cool
You look like a fool to me
Tell me

Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated
Life's like this you
And you fall, and you crawl, and you break
And you take, what you get, and you turn it into
Honesty and promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it
No, no, no
No, no, no, no
No, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no

Chill out, what you yelling for?
Lay back, it's all been done before
And if, you could only let it be
You will see

Somebody else
'Round everyone else
You're watching your back
Like you can't relax
You're trying to be cool
You look like a fool to me
Tell me

Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated
Life's like this you
And you fall, and you crawl, and you break
And you take, what you get, and you turn it into
Honesty and promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it
No, no
Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated
Life's like this you
And you fall, and you crawl, and you break
And you take, what you get, and you turn it into
Honesty and promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it
No, no, no

    General CommentIt seems to me that it's about Lucas feeling like he doesn't belong. And the music video really seems like that.

    General CommentI think its about him wanting to be with someone so bad he'll let her use him and want to be around her even though she's clearly only interested in sex and he's saying he'll let her stay if she wants to. he realizes she doesn't care if he's around, i.e.:
    "So if you say you wanna stay
    the night, then feel free
    Or if you say wanna take the
    flight to feel me
    But if you change your mind
    and go away
    then come what may
    But know that I'll be by your side."



    he knows he should just go get over her but his feelings he's developed for her are making him stick around:
    "Hey I wanna go home
    Don't wanna be here alone
    Yeah, I really can't stay

    Oh I really ought to go
    No, I really can't stay
    Oh this pain in my head
    No, it wont go away
    Oh I really ought to go
    Got to find my own way
    But this fear and this dread
    says that I must obey"

    the development for feelings for her is also referenced here:
    "Fuck your pain away
    I saw in you, I fell on through
    to devotion"
