we were living up on high street, 1993
you were packing your bags for some eastern city
that was a long time ago, I was just nineteen
but I would've come with you if you would've let me

I've been that boy, oh yeah
I've been that boy, oh yeah yeah yeah yeah

did you really go back with him? I heard it through a friend
I never understood what you saw in him
I tried to be happy for you, I couldn't in the end
I put it all in a letter that I couldn't send

and I've been that boy, oh yeah
I've been that boy, oh yeah yeah yeah yeah

now I could fill a swimming pool with second guesses and party hats
you were like a dream to me but you never looked at me like that
you never looked at me like that
you never looked at me like that
