Complicated Lyrics

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 yellin' 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
Watchin' your back
Like you can't relax
You're tryin' 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...
you fall and you crawl
And you break and you take
What you get and you turn it into
Honesty 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 are and
Where it's at, you see
You're making me
Laugh out
When you strike a pose
Take off all your preppy clothes
You know
You're not fooling anyone
When you become

Somebody else
'Round everyone else
Watchin' your back
Like you can't relax
Tryin' 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...
You fall and you crawl
And you break and you take
What you get and you turn it into
Honesty Promise me
I'm never gonna find you fake it

No, no, no...

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

Somebody else
'Round everyone else
You're watchin' your back
Like you can't relax
You're tryin' to be cool
You look like a fool
To me, to 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 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 Promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it

This song could be about a guy, a girl or a best friend. At one point in their friendship they promised to always be honest. One of them has become confused, insecure, and is experimenting with different roles to find their identity.

An error occured.

It's basically saying that things in life can get complicated, so be yourself and enjoy who you are.

wow, i have lived this scenario way too many times

An error occured.

My local radio station, the valley known, New Rock 104.1, said one morning that this song was about a friend of Avril's and this other guy she was interested in, it turned out, she ended up liking both of them. trust me, i've listened to this song an uncountable amount of times, and still dont see the whole picture about it, but just thought you guys would like to know, becuz according to the radio speaker, this is what has been said by Avril. lates!

An error occured.

this song is really good and i think that Avril speaks alot of truth in this song. i think that it is awesome that she is a skater and that she does what she wants to and she doesn't dress like a ho.

An error occured.

This chick is awesome and the video for this song is cool, you can tell this chick is real from the lyrics she writes, besides, she wrote all of it herself, not like many pop artists, and she's only 17.

An error occured.

She's only 17? Dang, this is such a good song! And true that Anarchy, she is TOTALLY real... sweet...

An error occured.

i dont like pop music at all or anything remotly close to it. However I just found out today she was born like 2 minutes from my house so because she grew up out here in the bonnies of Canada i like her now. I went to her highschool last year and didnt even realise it til now

An error occured.

i love this song! and the video is cool.... she looked like she was 14 though!

An error occured.

Great song- please stick to discussing it! Not her
