This song was a song that existed around the time when I was in the army. At least a good 8-9 years ago. The days of working in the army camp, churning roll call sheets, syndicates classes, helping to prepare texts books are boring but at least life is more straightforward then.

Recently there was a friend of mine who encountered a very interesting proposition which reads “I do not wish to correspond with you but that doesn’t mean we are not friends.” the notion of that really perplex me. Perhaps his friend can enlighten me how to be “friends that do not correspond”. That proposition itself is a paradox. Runs in the same line as “Let’s go for swim and not get wet”.

I can only say that my friend must be seen as worthless before his friend. Perhaps that’s a very friendly way to say “Please leave me alone, i have found someone else more interesting than you”

Its ironic to see how people use various methods to reject a person, “Please understand that I am still recovering from a broken relationship”. “Lets build a friendship first”. They expect a friendship to developed without talking and corresponding.. isn’t that just plain rejection?

The most ironic part is. while that individual is in the process of “recovering from a broken relationship”, that individual started a new relationship in less than 2 months. That individual went missing in action for 2 months, until my friend out of concern, wrote a simple “How are you?” message. Yet that individual had the cheek to tell my friend “Please be understanding”. While my friend have been nice, forbearing and kind, have that individual ever spare a thought for him? Have that individual gave my friend the respect he ought to have as a human? Yet that individual expect my friend to be “even more understanding”. Is that fair for my friend?

Sometimes i wish they would have just told my friend plainly that “You are not good enough for me” or “Sorry, I am not interested” or even “You cannot make it! I am not interested! Leave me alone! I got someone else better to be with now!”. I am sure he would prefer a short momentary pain compared to a paradoxical propositions that insult his intelligence.

This song is dedicated to my friends from the Warrant Officer School as well as those poor souls whom other deems as “Not good enough for me”. May there be a day where people will appreciate them . May there be a day where people stop acting with hypocrisy and just speak their mind.

Title: Sk8er Boy
Songwriters: Scott Spock;Lauren Christy;Graham Edwards;Avril Ramona Lavigne
Peformed By : Avril Lavigne

He was a boy, she was a girl
Can I make it anymore obvious?

He was a punk, she did ballet
What more can I say?

He wanted her, she’d never tell but
Secretly she wanted him as well.

But all of her friends stuck up their nose
They had a problem with his baggy clothes.

He was a skater boy, she said see ya later boy
He wasn’t good enough for her
She had a pretty face, but her head was up in space
She needed to come back down to earth.

Five years from now, she sits at home
Feeding the baby
She’s all alone

She turns on TV
Guess who she sees
Skater boy rockin’ up MTV.

She calls up her friends, they already know
And they’ve all got tickets to see his show

She tags along and stands in the crowd
Looks up at the man that she turned down.

He was a skater boy, she said see ya later boy
He wasn’t good enough for her
Now he’s a superstar
Slamin’ on his guitar
Does your pretty face see what he’s worth?

He was a skater boy, she said see ya later boy
He wasn’t good enough for her
Now he’s a superstar
Slamin’ on his guitar
Does your pretty face see what he’s worth?

Sorry girl but you missed out
Well tough luck that boys mine now

We are more than just good friends
This is how the story ends

Too bad that you couldn’t see
See the man that boy could be

There is more than meets the eye
I see the soul that is inside

He’s just a boy, and I’m just a girl
Can I make it anymore obvious?

We are in love, haven’t you heard
How we rock each others world

I’m with the skater boy, I said see ya later boy
I’ll be back stage after the show
I’ll be at a studio
Singing the song we wrote
About a girl you used to know!

I’m with the skater boy, I said see ya later boy
I’ll be back stage after the show
I’ll be at a studio
Singing the song we wrote
About a girl you used to know!
