lyrics

I forget the day we met
He blew in from a place out West
That flaming angel tattoo on his arm
Chewing gum and skipping classes
Leather jackets, cheap sunglasses
Burning bright and turning on his charm

Like a butterfly, come to life, he's beautiful
High school graduation coming soon
Raise a glass, welcome to the party
My new best friend
The Coolest Kid in the Room

Motor rollin' all over town
I knew he'd never let me down
His legend grew beyond imagination
Two of us and no one else
I'd hear him talking to himself
His eyes were closed, deep in meditation

Like a butterfly, come to life, he's beautiful
High school graduation coming soon
Raise a glass, welcome to the party
My new best friend
The Coolest Kid in the Room

Disappointment on my face
I heard a crack, I saw him break
He'd never be as bad as Miles Davis
Now I regret the day we met
Those memories we'd never forget
Dissolved like fallen snow when it hits the window

Like a butterfly, come to life, he's beautiful
High school graduation coming soon
Raise a glass, welcome to the party
My new best friend
The Coolest Kid in the Room
