Lyrics

The boy was so young and he sang about heartbreak
And long lonesome miles on the road.
I listened and wondered how such tender years
Could know all that he seemed to know.

His words were the kind that could pierce every pretense;
Break through the numbness of beer,
So I sat at the bar drinking whiskey and sorrow
With his words making love in my ear.

How can a boy sing about things
No man I have ever known, knew?
All that he is, is all that I wanted
But I wanted to find it in you.

So I took a new road to meet my new vision,
Untangle truth from desire.
I carry with me the heart of a child
Burning with innocent fire.

How can a boy sing about things
No man I have ever known knew?
All that he is, is all that I wanted
But I wanted to find it in you.
I wanted to find it in you.

And I don't know what to do about, all these dreams
All these promises broken;
Can't one thing just be what it seems?
I want one thing to be what it seems.

Where is the child that once danced in your eyes?
I miss him reaching for me.
