Who said anything about that?

I've driven round in circles for three hours
It was bound to happen that I'd end up at yours
I temporarily forgot there's better days to come
I thought that I would give it just one more chance


Cos' I want, tonight, what I've been waiting for
But I found, tonight, what I'd been warned about

You think you are complicated,
Deep mystery to all,
Well it’s taken me a while to see,
You’re not so special.
All energy, no meaning,
With a lot of words,
So paper thin that one real feeling,
Could knock you down.

And I've seen, tonight, what I'd been warned about
I'm gonna leave, tonight, before I change my mind

So see you when you’re forty,
Lost and all alone,
Being comforted by strangers,
you'll never need to know,
Not sad because you lost me,
But sad because you thought it was cool,
To be sad.

You think misery will make you stand apart from the crowd.
If you had walked past me today,
I wouldn’t have picked you out,
I wouldn’t have picked you out,
Wouldn’t have picked you out.

Now I’ve seen tonight,
How could I waste my time?
And I’ll be on my way,
And I won’t be back,

Cuz I’ve seen tonight,
What I’ve been warned about,
You’re just a boy, not a man; and I’m not coming back,
And I’m not coming back,
What I've been warned about.
