Song Lyric Sunday – Canada

Jim has asked us to feature Canadian music today. One Canadian who I used to listen to back in the day was Avril Lavigne. “Complicated” is one of her songs that I still dig years over 18 years after it was released (man that is scary!)

The writers on this track were Avril Lavigne, D. Alspach, Graham Edwards and Lauren Christy.

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 drivin’ in your car
And you’re talkin’ to me one on one
But you’ve become…

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
Tell me

Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you’re actin’ 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
You promised me I’m never gonna find you fake it
No, no, no

You come over unannounced
Dressed up like you’re somethin’ else
Where you are and where it’s at, you see
You’re makin’ me
Laugh out when you strike your pose
Take off all your preppy clothes
You know, you’re not foolin’ anyone
When you become

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
Tell me

Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you’re actin’ 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
You promised me I’m never gonna find you fake it
No, no, no

No, no, no
No, no, no
No, no, no

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…

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
Tell me

Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you’re actin’ 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
You promised me I’m never gonna find you fake it
No no

Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated? (yeah, yeah)
I see the way you’re actin’ 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
You promised me I’m never gonna find you fake it
No no no
