lyrics

When I Was a Boy

when I was a boy
I would play
night and day
and I could see
a world of make believe
the heroes I wanted to be
when I was a boy I spoke like a boy
but now those ways have come to an end
and I couldn’t wait just to understand
what it means to be a man
when I was a boy

when I was a boy
ghost riding my bike
afraid of girls I liked
and I would stare
at the way she wore her hair
at the way she smiled so sweet
when I was a boy I would stare at the wall
I would wait for her to call, of course she wouldn’t
but maybe she was waiting on me
waiting on a man
when I was a boy

when I was a boy
I would hide, I knew
how to escape from danger
and I was aware
even then that the world’s not fair
I wondered why I should care at all
when I was a boy I merely survived
but surviving turned me into a man
and now I find hope, faith, and love abide
still I long for the time
when I was a boy
