🎶 Stupid boy, you can't fence that in. Stupid boy, it's like holding back the wind. She laid her heart and soul right in your hands. And you stole her every dream and you crushed her plans. She never even knew she had a choice. And that's what happens when the only voice she hears is telling her she can't. Stupid boy. Stupid boy, oh.🎶

🎶 Blue...Looks good on the sky. Looks good on that neon buzzin’ on the wall. But darlin', it don’t match your eyes. I’m tellin’ you...You don’t need that guy. It’s so black and white, he’s stealin’ your thunder. Baby, blue ain’t your color.🎶
