He was a boy, she was a girl
Can I make it anymore obvious?

He was a punk, she did ballet
What more can I say?

He wanted her, she'd never tell but
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 ya 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.

Five 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' up MTV.

She calls up her friends, they already know
And they've all got tickets to see his show

She tags along and stands in the crowd
Looks up at the man that she turned down.

He was a skater boy, she said see ya later boy
He wasn't good enough for her
Now he's a superstar
Slamin' on his guitar
Does your pretty face see what he's worth?

He was a skater boy, she said see ya later boy
He wasn't good enough for her
Now he's a superstar
Slamin' on his guitar
Does your pretty face see what he's worth?

Sorry girl but you missed out
Well tough luck that boys 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 anymore obvious?

We are in love, haven't you heard
How we rock each others world

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

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

    I don't really know what this song is about, probably because I never even thought about it. But it's a great song by a great artist. ;]

    i think that this song means that it is what is on the inside that counts and not to take people for granted
