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, whatcha 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 talking to me one on one
What 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

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 and promise 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 all 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
Watching your back, like you can't relax
Trying 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
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 (no no no)

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

Why 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

Why you have to go and make things so complicated? (yeah yeah)
I see the way you're acting like your 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

    This song makes me feel guilty cos I thought sum1 wos making things complicated. Yeah the song sums it up completely. Actually it was more complicated than I thought so. This is hard to listen to now. But anyway. That didn't make sense did it? Oh well. Avril, rock on 4eva. Plz make another album like Let Go.

    Haha I love this song. Lol neways, I think that this song is about a girl who was best friends with this one guy or girl and all of a sudden they change and make everything so complicated by screwing up their old friendship and she just wants them to change back to normal the way things were before they changed.

    I like the way she sings because it reminds me of the difficult tasks I used to do in high school.

    High school is difficult because of the amount of work students would have to be assigned by the teacher.

    Band and orchestra are very difficult classes to take.

    I did play the trombone at one time and I made it look easy.
    The standing position was too hard for me because it was heavy for me to hold. I was only 19 years old.

    Toddlers could find the trombone easy to play because their hands are the right size to hold it while standing.

    First of all, I love her name. Don't know why, but it just makes me laugh-y whenever I say it. Avril Lavigne. Heehee!
    But this really is a good song. I think I mentioned it when I wrote a meaning to This Is Me You're Talking To. Just the classic be yourself stuff.
