"The New Boy" as written by Bjorn Hans-erik Dixgard and Gustaf Noren....
She was only 21
But so much older than she's now
Now she passed the 24
I guess it's time to say good bye

Here's the new
Here's the real
Here's the life you like to live
Now here's the new boy taking on the world tonight

When we met
She smelled like honey
When we kissed
She tasted tears
Then for 14000 seconds
We made love behind old fears

Here's the new
Here's the real
Here's the life you wish to live
Now here's the new boy taking on the world tonight

Take the words on your way
I don't waste the things I say
When in doubt, fuck the world
Forget all the things you've heard
Now here's the new boy taking on the world tonight

Why so sad?
Don't you like my way of life?
I don't last forever
Neither do the things we love
You are wise, this is now
This is all the things I want
Everything around us
Is moving except time

She was only 24
But so much younger than the past
We've laid all our troubles down
And now it's us against the rest

Here's the new
Here's the real
Here's the life you like to live
Now here's the new boy taking on the world tonight

Take the words on your way
I don't waste the things I say
When in doubt, fuck the world
Forget all the things you've heard
Now here's the new boy taking on the world tonight

    General CommentGustaf wrote it and he said in an interview that the song was about a girl he met during their tour in the US. She ws abused and hit by her boyfriend but couldn't break up with him because she loved him so much. It depressed Gustaf to see that so he wrote the song to show how good it could have been with this girl and her boyfriend. He kind of made up another reality instead of getting sad about the real situation.
