He was a boy,
She was a girl,
Can I make it any more obvious?
He was a punk,
She did ballet,
What more can I say
He wanted her,
She'd never tell, secretly she wanted him as well
But all of her friends,
Stuck up their nose,
They had a problem with his baggy clothes...

He was a skater boy,
She said "see you later boy",
He wasn't good enough for her
She had a pretty face,
But her head was up in space,
She needed to come back down to earth

5 years from now,
She sits at home,
Feeding the baby, she's all alone
She turns on TV,
Guess who she sees,
Skater boy rockin' on MTV,
She calls up her friends,
They already know,
And they've all got tickets to see his show
She tags along,
Stands in the crowd,
Looks up at the man that she turned down

He was a skater boy,
She said "see you later boy",
He wasn't good enough for her
Now he's a super star,
Slammin' on his guitar,
Does your pretty face see what he's worth?

He was a skater boy,
She said "see you later boy",
He wasn't good enough for her
Now he's a super star,
Slammin' on his guitar,
Does your pretty face see what he's worth?

Sorry girl but you missed out,
Well, tough luck that boy's mine now,
We are more than just good friends,
This is how the story ends
Too bad that you couldn't see,
See the man that boy could be,
There is more than meets the eye,
I see the soul that is inside

He's just a boy,
And I'm just a girl,
Can I make it any more obvious
We are in love,
Haven't you heard,
How we rock each others world

I'm with the skater boy,
I said see you later boy,
I'll be back stage after the show
I'll be at the studio,
Singing the song we wrote,
About a girl you used to know

I'm with the skater boy,
I said see you later boy,
I'll be back stage after the show
I'll be at the studio,
Singing the song we wrote,
About a girl you used to know

    this means a lot to me and my best friends it means dont judge people on what they are what they look like if you love who cares what other people think of him or you and someday you might regret that you didnt stand up 4 him!!!

    This song means that you shouldnt judge someone like for me i went to skool with this guy forever and he liked me and i didnt, he made me laugh and made me happy all of a sudden then when i wanted him he left and was no longer avalible so take your chances so one day you dont have to say i missed out on my true love because i let him fly out the window.

    I listened to this song for the vast majority of my childhood, and I found it really spoke to me, on an emotional level. Now everytime I listen to it it I become both sad and erect, I just can't help it! I hope it really touches everyone else like it touched me.

    For me, it means a perfect couple most meet and be together when they had very much similarities. They wrote songs together, they had very fun memories and those similarities made their relationship went stronger. That pretty avril and punk guitarist boy made up a very cute lyrics out of this song. Thumbs up !!
