    Help me to understand...

    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,
    What you yellin' 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, driving in my car
    And you're talking to me
    One on one
    But you become


    Somebody else
    'Roundeveryone else

    Watchin' your back
    Like you can't relax
    You're tryin' to be cool
    You look like a fool
    To me


    Tell me


    Why do 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 Promise me (Why is "p" capitalised)
    I'm never gonna find you fake it


    No, no, no

    ...............
    Underlined is what I don't understand.
    Maybe the lyrics are incorrect or it's just me.

    Not a teacher only a native.

    Someone likes Avril...

    'Somebody else, 'Roundeveryone else' - The person who the song is talking about, 'becomes somebody else' when around other people. 'Roundeveryone' should be 'Around everyone else' but it has been condensed to fit the style of the song. This follows on from the previous paragraph, if you were to write it normally it is easier to understand.
    ...But you become somebody else, roundeveryone else...'

    Honesty Promise me (Why is "p" capitalised) - I don't know why P is capitalised here, I have had a look on other websites that have song lyrics on and most don't capitalise the word 'promise'.

    Re: Help me to understand...

    Thank you! But I was hoping that you would explane me the second underlined text.
    Does he turns into honesty, or he turns into what he gets?
    Maybe it should be: Honestly, promise me...

    If you were writing the song lyrics as prose (normal writing), then you may have a comma between 'Honestly' and 'promise me', but as it's a song grammar is often altered to fit into the rhythm and flow of the song. On several other lyric sites, there is a comma between the words.
