lyrics

(revised)

When he calls "just to talk,"
He doesn’t seem to realize that he’s got nothing to say
When I see him the view is stunning, the conversation lame

His face is worth a thousand words but he can hardly speak,
His mind could be concealed or else there’s nothing to reveal
Yes he’s picture-perfect but what’s wrong with this?
(This) boy bores me to hell

When I look into his eyes,
I see pretty colors circling a spot of blackness inside
Why do I get the creepy feeling he has nothing to hide?

His face is worth a thousand words but he can hardly speak,
His mind could be concealed or else there’s nothing to reveal
Yes he’s picture-perfect but what’s wrong with this?
(This) boy bores me to hell

What’s behind that door?
Same room, different number,
I’ve seen it all before

Now it's time to check out,
His skin-deep amenities are wasted on me
What good’s a pretty view in a place I don’t want to be?

His face was worth a thousand words but he could hardly speak,
His mind was not concealed and there was nothing to reveal
Yes he’s picture-perfect but what’s wrong with this?
(This) boy bored me to hell
This boy bored me to hell
