"Used to Be A Lovely Boy" as written by Timothy James Rice-oxley, Tom Chaplin and Richard David Hughes....
Time to leave this town
Now your dreams have all let you down
No one here will miss you now
Time to wakeup and look around

Used to be a lovely boy
Lovely boy
Lovely boy
Used to be a lovely boy

Turn away and turn our heads
Just a hopeless dreamer she said
Eyes of cloud and feet of lead
Find a shore that needs you instead

Used to be a lovely boy
Lovely boy
Lovely boy
Used to be a lovely boy
Time on your hands
World at your feet
No adventure left incomplete

Da da da da da da da da da da da da da

Find aplace where you can hide
From the love that holds you inside
Time so unkind
Like an old friend leaves you behind.

Used to be a lovely boy
Lovely boy
Lovely boy
Used to be a lovely boy
Time on your hand

    General CommentI think this song is about Tom Chaplin (lead singer)
    It seems like Tim writes a lot of songs about him and their relationship and that sort of thing.
    But I think that the lyrics are pretty self-explanitory.
    Lovely song
