Lyrics

UNCOMPLICATED
(Lethem, Salas-Humara)

In the air, over the ocean
Faster and faster
The light is falling, the sky becoming
Harder and harder to use
No need to choose

Uncomplicated
Does it have to be so hard?
Uncomplicated
Hop the fence into the backyard
So many things can go wrong
If you try and understand them
Uncomplicated

Her eyes are closed, her skin is shining
Like a diamond
Her heart is racing, everybody's facing
The same direction to
Take in the movie

Repeat Chorus

Chicken or beef
Adulterated movies
Without a hint of grief
Wear the headphones
Take your relief

Brief instructions, lighted rows
A water landing
Everybody already knows, they're not paying attention
They're worried about their clothes

Uncomplicated
Do you have to go so far?
Uncomplicated
Does it have to be so hard?
Uncomplicated
Put the charges on your card
Uncomplicated
Hop the fence into the backyard
So many things can go wrong
If you try and understand them
Uncomplicated
