"COMPLICATED YOUTH"

Verse 1
I was living on my fabricated island,
Never knew what I had to be to make me smile.
There in the fancy walls I built around me,
Never knew that they were really walls of pain that {note} bound {note} me.

Verse 2
You were there with your arms around yourself, & you were
Contemplating what to do with all your wealth.
We were lost & searching through this world of madness,
Looking for a highway leading out of all this sadness.

Refrain 1
I was needing love so desperately,
Looking for a way to be innocently free.
Could we ever somehow find the truth,
And find the secret to our complicated youth?

Verse 3
So I set out on my way to find a reason.
So many tricks & trends folks try to believe in.
In a twisted world they think they’re headed places,
But they’re all the same 'cause they hide behind each {note} others’ {note} faces.

Verse 4
I believed there had to be a solution,
'Cause I saw smiles in a world of pollution,
Smiles on the faces of the children who had
Found the truth & a brand new life. Yes, I knew that …

Refrain 2
I was needing love so desperately,
Then I found a way to be truly free.
And now that I have found the truth,
I know the secret to my complicated youth.

Chorus :
I believe, now we found a new life,
No longer victims of a world of strife, no, no, no, no.
God has given us a voice to sing a new song
For this crazy world, to right the wrongs.
'Cause I believe.

Refrain 3
I was needing love so desperatelyy.
Then I found a way to be truly free.
And now that I have found the truth,
I know the secret to my complicated youth.

Chorus 2
I believe, now we found a new life,
No longer victims of a world of strife, no, no, no, no.
God has given us a voice to sing a new song
For this crazy world, to right the wrongs.
'Cause I believe,
Woh woh, He's given me a new song
For this crazy world, to right the wrongs.
