She's Got a Boyfriend Now - Boys Like Girls

We were seventeen and invincible
Had the world figured out
And the girl on my shoulder
Told me everything's gonna be all right
And everything was gonna be all right

Yeah, maybe we were in high school
But you never see the ending
When you're young and not pretending
Singing, "Everything's gonna be all right"
And everything was gonna be all right

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
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
But she's got a boyfriend now

Then 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 all right
And everything was gonna be all right

Maybe I thought I could sweep in
And sweep her off her feet and go right back to Boston
Thinking everything's gonna be all right
And everything was gonna be all right

The 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 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
But she's got a boyfriend now

Take me back to you somehow
And 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 the bird on my shoulders
Told me everything's gonna be all right
When is everything gonna be all right?

Now she's got a boyfriend
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
'Cause she's got a boyfriend now
(She's got a boyfriend now)
(She's got a boyfriend now)

Take your
Take your breath, breath, breath away
Take your
Take your breath, breath, breath away
(She's got a boyfriend now)
