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,

Until 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



*note: G.A.T.E is acronym for gifted and talented education
