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

The spring held nothing but suprise,
And all that we ignored was opened to our eyes.
And I said, "Then maybe we should settle down,
Find a cottage or a tunnel underground. "

And we'll be complicated, complicated, complicated,
They said we would be
Complicated, complicated, complicated they said.

Oh, I should've known
Oh, we'll have to go
Back to the way that we were
Before we were us,
Before I was me,
Before we were happier than I've ever been
Than you'll ever see,
'Cause that's the way it has to be.
The way it has to be.

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

And we'll be complicated, complicated, complicated,
They said we would be
Complicated, complicated, complicated, they said.

Oh, I should've known.
And I said oh,
We'll have to go
Back to the way that we were
Before we were us,
Before I was me,
Before we were happier than I've ever been,
Than you'll ever see
'Cause that's the way it has to--

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

So we'll go back to the way that we were
Before we were us,
Before I was me,
Before we were happier than I've ever been,
Than you'll ever see,
'Cause that's the way it has to--

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