lyrics

Green eyes, pretty and patient, watch the world go by
Baby, you’re just another flower waiting around to die

Nothing like they said you’d be, now soldier, stand up tall
Feeling like you’re just a shadow, if you feel at all

Oh, you know it’s true
Ain’t no other boy like you
You’re just so pretty

Mama up and left you sitting in the street
Feel your hands, hot and tired; feel the glass beneath your feet

Daddy said he’d come on home but he hasn’t been back since
Dirty mind, he’s not your father, and you can’t be convinced

Oh, you know it’s true
Ain’t no other boy like you
You’re just so pretty

Brother’s goin’ on to doin’ better things
Sister’s gone and fallen in love with the way her boyfriend sings

Callused hands, find your passion and wipe away your tears
You have a chance to find your peace but you won’t find it here

Oh, you know it’s true
Ain’t no other boy like you
You’re just so pretty

The pretty girl you left behind is calling out to God
The pretty boy you thought you were has fallen far too hard

So drink away your demons and find something to do
‘Cause the world will never have love for a pretty boy like you

Oh, you know
You know it’s true
You’ll always be my pretty boy
