Keith Urban - Stupid Boy - Lyrics Meaning

The lyrics to Stupid Boy by Keith Urban tell the story of a relationship that went sour because he was unable to appreciate her for who she truly was. He had an image in his head of the type of person she should be, and when she tried to act different than his expectations, he held her back. He labeled himself as the one that "stole her very dream" and "crushed her plans". He came to the realization that because he was always telling her she couldn't, that he ended up pushing her away in the long run.

He understands now that she was "precious like a flower" and that he did not appreciate that until she was long gone. He admits that she was the all that ever made him feel alive, and now because of his decisions, she could not take being told "no" anymore. The lyrics acknowledge that she tried to make things work between them, but once she realized that it was not working, she made the decision to leave and never look back. Now he is full of regrets because he can appreciate her for who she was and the person that she made him.
