See you when you're forty

I've driven round in circles for three hours, it was bound to happen that I'd end up at your. 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 that 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 me when your 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, well, if you had walked past me today, I wouldn't have picked you out.
Now I've seen, tonight, how I could waste my time and I'll be on my way, and I won't be back cos I've seen, tonight, what I've been warned about. You're just a boy, not a man, and I'm not coming back.
