  • Lyrics
  • Well she was precious, like a flower
    She grew wild, wild but innocent
    A perfect prayer in a desperate hour
    She was everything beautiful and different
    Stupid boy, you can't fence that in
    Stupid boy, it's like holdin' 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

    So, what made you think you could take a life
    And just push it, push it around
    I guess to build yourself up so high
    You had to take her and break her down
    Well

    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

    You stupid boy
    You always had to be right
    And now you lost the only thing that ever made you feel alive, oh ho
    Yeah, yeah

    She laid her heart and soul right in your hands, yeah
    And you stole her every dream and you crushed her plans, yes you did
    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

    You stupid boy
    Oh, I'm the same old, same old stupid boy
    It took a while for her to figure out she could run
    But when she did, she was long gone, long goneWriter/s: DAVID ALLEN BERG, SARAH BUXTON, NANCY BRYANT
