Who's to say, he's not the gifted one
Well I forgot, he's not the teachers son
No he's just the reason for her to say
That she needs a substance in her today
Well who's to say he's not going to see the sun
Well I forgot he's not the gifted one
No he's just a, another version of his dad
He'll learn to love things that he never
All he ever does is walk alone
Man he can only walk so far before
All he ever does is look inside
He don't need nowhere to hide
I know she is all that he ever loved at 17
Too bad to her he was a passing thing only temporary,
'til she finds someone with everything
Cause she's what we might call a sugar-queen
See her whole scene consists of diamond rings
But that's okay, probably better anyway
Cause now that he's free she might finally see that
All he ever does is walk alone
Man he can only walk so far before
All he ever does is look inside
He don't need nowhere to hide
