johnson carolyn dawn – “complicated2″

#

There is another version of this song already posted, but I play it a bit
differently, so I wanted to add mine. This song can be played without a
capo, or even capoed at the first or second fret, depending upon what key
you want to sing it in. They all sound good! As always, listen to the
song for the timing and changes, but also be creative with it!

Complicated
Carolyn Dawn Johnson

Intro: G Bm C D C

Verse 1:
G
So scared that the way that I feel
G
Is written all over my face
C
When you walk into the room
D C
I want to find a hiding place

G
We used to laugh, we used to hug
G
The way that old friends do
C
But now a smile and a touch of your hand
D C
Just makes me come unglued

Em Am
Such a contradiction, should I lie or tell the truth
Em Am D
Is it fact or fiction, oh the way I feel for you

Chorus:
G
So complicated…so frustrating
Bm
I want to hold you close, I want to push you away
C D
I want to make you go, I want to make you stay
G Bm
Should I say it…should I tell you how I feel
C D C
I want you to know, but then again I don’t
G Bm C D C
It’s so complicated

Verse 2 (same chords as Verse 1:)
Just when I think I’m under control
I think I finally got a grip
Another friend tells me that
My name is always on your lips

You say I’m more than just a friend
You say I must be blind
Well I admit I’ve seen you watch me
>From the corner of your eye

It’s so confusing…I wish you’d just confess
But think of what I’d be losing
If your answer wasn’t yes

Repeat Chorus here, go right into BRIDGE:
G Bm
So complicated…oh, I hate it
Am C D G Bm
Cause I’ve waited so long for someone like you
C D (C)
Oh, what do I do
G Bm
Should I say it…should I tell you how I feel
C D C
Oh, I want you to know, but then again, I don’t
G Bm C D C
So complicated

(Repeat and fade intro chords to the end)

*The (C) can be used as a transitional chord. Many of the chords in
between are quick chords, just used to move the song along in a more
interesting way. Again, play around until it sounds good to you. Happy
pickin’!
