Who's to say he's not the gifted one
Well I forgot he's not the teacher's son
No he's just a reason for her to say
That she needs a substance in her today

Well who's to say, he's not gonna see the sun
Well I forgot he's not the gifted one
No, he's just another version of his dad
Who learned to love, things that he never...

All he ever does is walk alone
Man he can only can walk so far before…
All he ever does is look inside
He don’t need nowhere to hide.

I know she's all that he ever loved at 17
Too bad to her he was a passing thing
Only temporary 'til she finds
Someone with everything cause she's what we
Might call a sugar queen see her whole scene
Consists of diamond rings but that’s ok
Probably better anyway cause now that she's free
Well she might finally see that...

All he ever does is walk alone
Man he can only can walk so far before…
All he ever does is look inside
He don’t need nowhere to hide.

    General CommentYeah this song is awesome... the verse starting with "I know she's all that he ever loved at 17..." is really relatable for alot of people out there.

    General Commentthis song.. fits me and my last boyfriend so well. i feel bad for it.
    i'm 19 and he is 17. He fell in love with me and i broke up with him for some horrible reasons. one being that he cost me a lot of money because he never paid where ever we went and i guess i'm the more pampered type and like the guy to pay for everything. i hate to admit it, but i am high maintenance. so yeah, call me the sugar queen.

    and i do feel pretty free. except for when i see him walk alone.

    General Commenti fucking love this song... i agree with JSuika2189 and thats the part i relate to the most
    i like this one more than "upside down" even though it is fucking awesome as well
    maybe only cuz i relate to it better.. i wish he wouldnt have changed it and released this one

    General CommentYes I agree with everyone and I'm now addicted to this song because I too relate to
    "I know she's all that he ever loved at 17
    Too bad to her he was a passing thing
    Only temporary 'til she finds
    Someone with everything"
    But can anyone explain the rest of the song for me? Maybe the beginning. Because I still dont get it
