  C                           G
The written word was just enough, 
        C                   G                       D
To keep us going when the world would get a little tough.
    C                           G
And, I held you up when winter came, 
     C                             G      D
And no one said a thing when everything became so very
Em               G           Em           D
Complicated complicated complicated they said.

C                          G 
The spring held nothing but surprise, 
  C                           Em           D
And all that we ignored was open to our eyes.
                    C                 G
And I said, then maybe we should settle down, 
 C                     Em        D
Find a cottage or a tunnel underground

And we'll be
    Em           G         Em              D 
Complicated complicated complicated they said we would be,
  Em           G         Em              D  
Complicated complicated complicated they said.
      Em    C           G       D      
Ohhhhhhhohhhhhh, I should've known, 
      Em     C        G     D
Ohhhhhhhohhhhhh, we'll have to go, 
Em                    CG 
Back to the that we were
              G 
Before we were us, 
             D 
Before I was me, 
                 Em           C 
Before we were, happier than I've ever been, 
       G                        D
Than you'll ever see, 
                                 Em C
'Cause that's the way it has to be, 
                  G D 
The way it has to be.

C                          G 
We felt the summer on our skin, 
 C                               G            D 
We curled up in the warmth and let each other in.
  C                                    G 
And I asked, "Have you felt this way before..."
    C                          G           D 
You turned to me said "No I'll be forever yours..."

And we'll be... 
  Em           G         Em              D 
Complicated complicated complicated they said we would be, 
  Em           G         Em              D 
Complicated complicated complicated they said.
Em           C         G         D
Ohhhhhhhohhhhhh, I should've known, 
               Em    C       G       D
And I said ohhhhhhhohh, we'll have to go, 
Em                  C
Back to the that we were
               G 
Before we were us, 
             D 
Before I was me, 
                 Em           C 
Before we were, happier than I've ever been, 
G                    D 
Than you'll ever see, 

'Cause that's the way it has to... 

Em                               C 
I would push and you would pull away from me my heart would bleed
    Em                              C               D                 
And I'd say things I didn't mean to try and get you back to me.
       Em 
We've bent the rules, played the games
     C 
And never said we felt the same.
  Em                     
We ended things like we began.
    C                 D 
And feared what we became... 

            Em                    C 
So we'll go back, to the that we were, 
               G 
Before we were us, 
             D 
Before I was me, 
                  Em         C
Before we were, happier than I've ever been, 
      G              D
Than you'll ever see, 

'Cause that's the way it has to... 
  Em                    C 
Back to the way that we were, 
               G
Before we were us, 
             D 
Before I was me, 
                 Em           C 
Before we were happier than I've ever been, 
      G              D 
Than you'll ever see, 
                                 Em    C
'Cause that's the way it has to be.
                        Em    D 
That's the way it has to be.
                  G 
The way it has to be.
