Intro: Cadd9 G Cadd9 G D

Cadd9                       G
The written word was just enough, 
Cadd9                       G               D
To keep us going when the world would get a little tough.
     Cadd9                       G
And, I held you up when winter came, 
Cadd9                        G          D
And no one said a thing when everything became so very
Cadd9       G           Em7                D
Complicated complicated complicated they said.

Cadd9                       G
The spring held nothing but surprise, 
Cadd9                       G            D
And all that we ignored was open to our eyes.
  Cadd9                                 G
And I said, then maybe we should settle down, 
Cadd9               G           D
Find a cottage or a tunnel underground

And we'll be
Cadd9         G          Em7              D 
Complicated complicated complicated they said we would be,
Cadd9         G          Em7              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                  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, 
                                 Em Cadd9 
'Cause that's the way it has to be, 
                  G D 
The way it has to be.

Cadd9                     G
We felt the summer on our skin, 
Cadd9                           G             D 
We curled up in the warmth and let each other in.
             Cadd9                   G 
And I asked, "Have you felt this way before..."
Cadd9                     G          D 
You turned to me said "No I'll be forever yours..."

And we'll be
Cadd9         G          Em7              D 
Complicated complicated complicated they said we would be,
Cadd9         G          Em7              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                
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, 
                                 Em7    Cadd9 G D 
'Cause that's the way it has to be.
                        Em7  Cadd9 
That's the way it has to be.
                  G   D
The way it has to be.
