The written word was just enough,
To keep us going when the world would get a little tough.
And, I held you up when winter came,
And no one said a thing when everything became so very
Complicated complicated complicated they said.

The spring held nothing but suprise,
And all that we ignored was open to our eyes.
And I said, then maybe we should settle down,
Find a cottage or a tunnel underground

And we'll be
Complicated complicated complicated they said we would be,
Complicated complicated complicated they said.
Oh, I should've known,
Oh, we'll have to go,
Back to the that we were
Before we were us,
Before I was me,
Before we were, happier than I've ever been,
Than you'll ever see,
'Cause that's the way it has to be,
The way it has to be.

We felt the summer on our skin,
We curled up in the warmth and let each other in.
And I asked, "Have you felt this way before..."
You turned to me said "No I'll be forever yours..."

And we'll be...
Complicated complicated complicated they said we would be,
Complicated complicated complicated they said.
Oh, I should've known,
And I said oh, we'll have to go,
Back to the that we were
Before we were us,
Before I was me,
Before we were, happier than I've ever been,
Than you'll ever see,
'Cause that's the way it has to...

I would push and you would pull away from me my heart would bleed
And I'd say things I didn't mean to try and get you back to me.
We've bent the rules, played the games
And never said we felt the same.
We ended things like we began.
And feared what we became...

So we'll go back, to the that we were,
Before we were us,
Before I was me,
Before we were, happier than I've ever been,
Than you'll ever see,
'Cause that's the way it has to...
Back to the way that we were,
Before we were us,
Before I was me,
Before we were happier than I've ever been,
Than you'll ever see,
'Cause that's the way it has to be.
That's the way it has to be.
The way it has to be.
