So, this is the sound of forty hearts pounding along ...
To music that's blasting through the room.
So, let's put on a show in our weekend's best clothes.
I hope you find what you're looking for.
Because I meant it when I said "I will never love again."
But you'll never understand.

This black and white formal's got all that she wants.
It's got boys, I decide...
...boys by her side.
And I'm thinking of her, she's not thinking of me.
And now all that she wants is the touch of warm bodies.

I'm begging you to consciously turn your eyes in my direction.
Connection is made.
I meant what I said, I will never love again.
But you'll never understand.

This black and white formal's got all that she wants.
It's got boys, I decide...
...boys by her side.
And I'm thinking of her, she's not thinking of me.
And now all that she wants is the touch of warm bodies.

    General CommentThis song is lovely =]]
    To me it seems like he still loves a girl who he lost, and now she's out looking for something, or someone else, and he's realised what he's lost.
    She wanted to be free, he still wanted her...

    General Commentlet me just start by saying this is an AWESOME SONG! well i think its about a boy who loves a girl that doesnt love him. it seems like there is other boys trying to win her over...that expains the "fourty hearts pounding" and the "boys by her side." she might be confused on what she wants. but in the end he just wants her to be happy!

    does it say "boys side to side" instead of boys i decide? eh i dont know thats what i heard! but yeah......

    AWESOME SONG!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    General CommentYou two nailed it in your own right.

    To me though, I relate this song to a guy who a girl lost interest in -- who despite this is not over her -- where she has rather begun to sleep around (@ "And now all that she wants is the touch of warm bodies.")
