or
Boys Like Girls

We were seventeen and invincible
Had the world figured out and a girl on my shoulder
Told me, "Everything's gonna be alright"
Whoa oh
And everything was gonna be alright
Whoa oh

Yeah, maybe we were in high school
But you never see the ending when you're young and love pretending
Singing, "Everything's gonna be alright"
Whoa oh
Everything was gonna be alright

Buried her deep inside
Stars stuck in my eyes

Now she's got a boyfriend
And I've got a rock band
Cause nothing really ever goes the way it's planned
Yea she's in Ohio
And I'm on some back road
Driving to the city and then, who knows?
Cause that's all, she wrote

Wish that I could turn this car around
But she's got a boyfriend now

And I took a trip out to LA
For the girl with a smile that could take your breath away
I'm thinking, everything's gonna be alright
Whoa oh
And everything was gonna be alright
Whoa oh

Maybe I thought I could sneak in
And sweep her off her feet and go right back to Boston
Thinking everything's goin' be alright
Whoa oh
And everything was gonna be alright

These streets keep holding on
But now she's so far gone

Now she's got a boyfriend
And I've got a rock band
Cause nothing really ever goes the way it's planned
Yeah, she's on the West Coast
And I'm on some back road
Driving to the city and then, who knows?
Cause that's all, she wrote

Wish that I could turn this car around
But she's got a boyfriend now

Take me back to you somehow
With everything that I know now it's so hard
I tore us apart

Take me back to feeling like the world
Would just keep dealing me the right cards
Now you're just so far

And I'm twenty-three and invincible
Got the world figured out and a bird on my shoulder
Told me, "Everything's gonna be alright"
Whoa oh
And when is everything gonna be alright?

And now she's got a boyfriend
And I've got a rock band
Cause nothing really ever goes the way it's planned
Yeah, she's in Ohio
And I'm on some back road
Driving to the city and then, who knows?
Cause that's all, she wrote

I wish that I could turn this car around
Cause there she goes
I wish that I could press rewind somehow
But she's got a boyfriend now

Whoa

Whoa

(She's got a boyfriend now)

Whoa

Whoa

(She's got a boyfriend now)

Take your

Take your

Breath, breath, breath, breath, away

Take your
Take your
Breath, breath, breath away

(Now)
