Nickel Creek - Can't Complain Lyrics



I made her smile, I made her cry
Cleared her head and made her wonder why
I helped her live, I made her want to die
But she can't complain, she can't complain

She tried to date a friend of mine
I was at his house when she came to say goobye
He stood her up and she took it as a sign
But I can't complain, I can't complain

We took off for the weekend, had quite a time
Shared everything we'd ever tried
I told her I could love her, told her I could lie
So she can't complain, she can't complain

She didn't care if she saw me in her life
I left it up for her to decide
She couldn't see the end, neither could I
So I can't complain, I guess I can't complain

She moved here, bought the first house she could find
I moved in, we locked ourselves inside
I guess we just kidnapped each other's minds
So we can't complain, we can't complain, mmm

I cheated on her with a friend of mine
There are no days when we don't fight
But remember, I warned her, and I'm a guy
So she can't complain, no she can't complain

She knows she can't complain
She can't complain
No, she can't complain...

No, she can't complain, she can't complain
She can't complain, she can't complain
No, no, she can't complain, she can't complain
She can't complain, she can't complain
She can't complain

    An anthem for relationships in your 20s

    The 4th verse is missing from the lyrics:
    She didn't care she saw me in her life
    I left it up for her to decide
    She couldn't see the end of me, nor could I
    So I can't complain, I guess I can't complain

  3. Denese Allen

    Thank you for putting it up there. Here. whichever.

    I have listened to Nickel Creek for as long as I can remember. So many things from my early years have faded away, but this stays constant.
