Avril Lavigne Complicated

Release Date:
Record label:
Genre(s): Breakdowns

break/doWn translating the hits for the masses
by: the munk


Young Avril Lavigne has hit it big in a major way with her breakthrough single, "Complicated." Speaking of the trials and tribulations of being a teenager and the frustration of poseurs, "Complicated" speaks to the teenage psyche in otherwise unimaginable ways. It's truly a brilliant song..


Ok, maybe it isn't brilliant. But it's still kinda catchy and we can handle it way more than we can handle Britney Spears.


Original 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


[Verse 1]
Chill out whatcha 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 drivin' in your car
and you're talking to me one on one but you've become...
Somebody else round everyone else.
You're watching your back like you can't relax.
You're tryin' to be cool you look like a fool to me.
Tell me


[Chorus]
Why'd 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


[Verse 2]
You come over unannounced
dressed up like you're somethin' else
where you are and 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've become
Somebody else round everyone else.
You're watching your back like you can't relax.
You're tryin' to be cool you look like a fool to me.
Tell me


[Chorus]
Chill out whatcha 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


[Chorus 2x]


broken/doWn


yes, life's like this
and that's the way that things go
because that's the way it is
yeah, it's like that


[Verse 1]
Calm down, is it necessary to raise your voice?
Relax, I have seen you do this before
If you take a step back and look at the situation
Then you would understand
That I prefer being around you
When we are traveling in your automobile
And it's just you and me, but lately you have developed...
A completely different personality when you are amongst others.
You are always wondering who's around for you to impress.
I can tell that you are trying to act charismatic, but I can see through your act.
So let me know...


[Chorus]
Why do you try to make things difficult?
When you try to portray yourself in a different light around other people it's rather frustrating
But it goes that way
Some days you might be seriously down on your luck
But you have to take that depression and turn it around
Just assure me that I'm not going to become aware of the fact that you are being phony.
Please, anything but that.


[Verse 2]
You just show up wherever I am with out warning me first
All in your fancy duds trying to look hip
The world you live in is non-existent
But you
Make me laugh when you are trying to be all G.Q.
Get out of your Banana Republic gear and put on your "regular clothes"
You can't really think anyone buys that preppy attitude of yours
When you start to get all weird.
A completely different personality when you are amongst others.
You are always wondering who's around for you to impress.
I can tell that you are trying to act charismatic, but I can see through your act.
So let me know...


[Chorus]
Calm down, is it necessary to raise your voice?
Relax, I have seen you do this before
If you take a step back and look at the situation
Then you would understand
Whenever you're around other people than me
You're looking over your shoulder like you think everyone's watching you.
You spend all your energy trying to look cool, but in reality you just look like a jackass.
Now, explain to me...


[Chorus 2x]
