"Complicated" as written by Marc Smith and Mike Di Scala....
I'm so scared that the way that I feel
Is written all over my face
When you walk into the room I wanna find a hiding place
We used to laugh, we used to hug
The way that old friends do
But now a smile and a touch of your hand
Just make me come unglued
It's such a contradiction, do I lie or tell the truth
Is it fact or fiction the way I feel for you

It's so complicated
I'm so frustrated
I wanna hold you close
I wanna push you away
I wanna make you go
I wanna make you stay
Should I say it
Should I tell you how I feel
Oh I want you to know
But then again I don't
It's so complicated

Just when I think I'm under control
I think I finally got a grip
Another friend tells me that
My name is always on your lips
They say I'm more than just a friend
They say I must be blind
Well I admit that I've seen you watch me
From the corner of your eye
Oh it's so confusing I wish you'd just confess
But think of what I'd be losing
If your answer wasn't yes

It's so complicated
I'm so frustrated
I wanna hold you close
I wanna push you away
I wanna make you go
I wanna make you stay
Should I say it
Should I tell you how I feel
Oh I want you to know
But then again I don't
It's so complicated

I hate it cause I've waited so long
For someone like you

Should I say it
Should I tell you how I feel
Oh I want you to know
But then again I don't
It's so complicated

    General CommentIt's so obvious what it means, but the way her voice presents it...it's overwhelming. You actually hear her "frustration", I think this is one of my favorite country songs.

    General Comment This song describes a feeling so perfectly.. now knowing whether you just want to be friends with someone or if you actually want to move onto something more.. and the fear of moving on. I'm so happy someone put this feeling into words.

    General CommentI really love this song. It describes how I feel about my crush sooooo well. I have been trying to put how I feel for him into words, but I couldn't ever seem to get it right, and I think that this song did it perfectly!

    General CommentI feel this feeling right about now. Only it's my best friend. He's the best. And I'm not a huge country fan either, but this song is great.

    General CommentThis is how I feel about my best friend too. I listen to it at least every other day, and when she gets to the part about 'but think about what I'd be losing..' I get all teary. It sucks that someone else can say so clearly what you feel when you can't even formulate a coherant thought...
