Why Do You Want Him? Lyrics

I saw you standing alone
With a sad look on your face
You call him on the phone
Looks like he left you
Without a trace
Tears falling out of your eyes
He's living in a disguise
You've been feeling bad for so long
You wonder if it's right...

    Only true Green Day fans would know this one.
    It is the first song Billie Joe wrote around the age of tweleve. Billie Joe is trying to figure out why his mother wants her boyfriend.

    Yeah, it was 14.
    He wrote this about his mom and stepdad, whom he hated. Also, judging by the lyrics here, he kept leaving her brokenhearted.
