Complicated Melody Lyrics

by India Arie

If he were a color
He'd be a deep dark forest green
If he were a car
He'd be a long stretch limousine
With room for all of humanity inside
'Cause he is so giving and he is so wise

If he were a number
He'd be a five
'Cause, he has such a brilliant mind
If he were an animal
He'd be an ass
'Cause he's so stubborn sometimes

But if he were a song
He'd be a complicated melody
That complicated fellow, he
I almost cannot sing it on key
But he means the world to me

If he were a building
He'd be a beautiful cathedral
'Cause he's so traditionally spiritual
If he were a dance
He'd be complicated like the tango
Exotic like a mango

But if he were a song
He'd be a complicated melody
That complicated fellow, he
I almost cannot sing it on key
But he means the world to me

He ain't the reason
For the sun and the moon
He is just the reason
For this here tune
'Cause he means the world to me

Said, he means the world to me
Me me me, yeah
He means the world to me, yeah, yeah

Complicated melody
That complicated fellow
He's a complicated melody
I almost cannot sing it on key
