    Need help with a song

    My 8 year old is dying to get the song Complicated.

    She has no clue who sings it, nor do I. Plus I have no idea if it is a "kid friendly" song. Any ideas?

    There are days I feel old and this is one of them.

    The song's by a girl called Avril Lavigne"Complicated".As for the song being kid friendly, here are the lyrics


    Uh huh, life's like this
    Uh huh, uh huh, that's the way it is
    Cause life's like this
    Uh huh, uh huh that's the way it is

    Chill out whatcha yelling' for?
    Lay back it's all been done before
    And if you could only let it be
    you will see
    I like you the way you are
    When we're drivin' in your car
    and you're talking to me one on one but you've become

    Somebody else round everyone else
    You're watching your back like you can't relax
    You're tryin' to be cool you look like a fool to me
    Tell me

    Why you have to go and make things so complicated?
    I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated
    Life's like this you
    And you fall and you crawl and you break
    and you take what you get and you turn it into honesty
    and promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it
    no no no

    You come over unannounced
    dressed up like you're somethin' else
    where you are and where it's at you see
    you're making me
    laugh out when you strike your pose
    take off all your preppy clothes
    you know you're not fooling anyone
    when you've become

    Somebody else round everyone else
    Watching your back, like you can't relax
    Trying to be cool you look like a fool to me
    Tell me

    Why you have to go and make things so complicated?
    I see the way you're acting like you're somebody else gets me frustrated

    and You fall and you crawl and you break
    and you take what you get and you turn it into

    promise me I'm never gonna find you fake it
    no no no

    Does anyone know what song was played at the beginning of 'Without a Trace' on 02/07/03??? It was a male singer, kinda sounded like Dave Matthews (hell, maybe it is...)??? Any help would be appreciated.

    I recall the song, it was pretty good but I have no clue at all who sang it.

    Sorry Jewelsy, I checked the press release from CBS for that episode, and it doesn't say. Hopefully someone here can help you.

    Thanks Nancy and John. I taped the show, but not the ending credits. I keep on listening to the song thinking that there will be some hint of recognition, but not yet.

    David Gray sometimes sounds like Dave Matthews, too. Can you give us some lyrics? That would help.

    I'll try to give you some lyrics, although they tone down the music alot while the actors are talking.

    A few bars with simple piano:

    Oh know, what's this?
    a spider web and I'm caught in the middle
    So I turn to ________
    the thought of all the stupid things I've done

    And I've never meant to cause you sorrow
    and I've never meant to do you wrong
    and _______ if I ever caused you trouble
    oh, I never meant to do you harm

    Then it goes back to the simple, pretty piano. I checked out Towerrecords.com and Amazon.com to listen to some of the tracks by John Mayer and David Gray, and although they both sound like the 'mystery' singer, nothing matched.

    This is driving me nuts.
