And he won't be there
to tell things to you at night
Cause he's got wise now
and he's no longer her fool
You know she's missing him
She made a bad decision
So far away and
in a different world now

And you were his friend
But this time, this time
he'll be smarter

The boy has gone away
He has played his part
The boy has gone away
The boy is looking sharp
The boy has gone away
He has played his part
The boy has gone away
The boy is looking sharp

And in his place now
he's got someone who'll be there
He still thinks of her
and that won't go away
You know he's missing her
She made the wrong decision
But he's much harder

And he doesn't miss the way
that you were his friend
But this time, this time
he'll be smarter

The boy has gone away
He has played his part
The boy has gone away
The boy is looking sharp
The boy has gone away
He has played his part
The boy has gone away
The boy is looking sharp

The boy has gone away
The boy has gone away

    General CommentThis is such a sad song, but it's soooo good. I couldn't stand to see it continue to go w/o comment. (Ya really do need to listen to this online.) Someone went away and was replaced is what I am getting from the lyrics, but never trust me; I suck at deciphering lyrics:)

    General Commentthe girl left him for a reason but she still misses him. so now, the boy doesn't want her back, but still misses her. game people play. why can't they just be honest to each other how they feel and be together.
