Boys you won't remember
From the minute
You walked into the room
Every letter started broken-hearted
And ended way too soon

Lived through underrated
Getting jaded
To wind up with no one
Hiding in new places
Getting wasted
Singing "I guess we're done"

And I don't want you to wonder why
I don't want you to wonder why
It won't do any good
You don't know what you got into
Until you know when it's all gone wrong

And I don't feel the need to try and explain
Excuses sounding the same
You're gonna find
You're gonna find that

I've been let down
But I stood up
Dead off of the ground
But I stood up
Lost without a sound
But I stood up
To face another round
But I stood up
And you want me, you want me

Don't know what you got on me
And even then, just you wait and see

And I don't feel the need to try and explain
Excuses sounding the same
You're gonna find
You're gonna find that

I've been let down
But I stood up
Dead off of the ground
But I stood up
Lost without a sound
But I stood up
To face another round
But I stood up
And you want me, you want me

    General Comment...excuses sounding the same
    you're gonna find you're gonna find I...
    I've been knocked down
    but i stood up
    get up off the ground, but i stood up
    lost without a sound, but i stood up
    face another round, but i stood up
    you want me you want me

    dont know what you got on me, but even if just you wait and see.
    I dont feel the need to try and explain
    excuses sounding the same
    you're gonna find you're gonna find I...
    I've been knocked down
    but i stood up
    get up off the ground, but i stood up
    lost without a sound, but i stood up
    face another round, but i stood up
    you want me you want me

    General CommentWrens being self-referential. Most of this album is about how they fought back tooth-and-nail to keep their artistic integrity. This is about their fight to make a name for themselves, it seems. Time after time they're forgotten, these "Boys you won't remember", and many times "they're knocked down" but they keep going, trying to make a name for themselves.

    General CommentConsdidering that this song is the evolution of a good, snarky breakup song (Miss Me) I doubt it's self-referential, at least not regarding artistic integrity. Same melody, similar in many respects, but where Miss Me was defiant as all hell, this one comes off as whiny.
