Tom Milsom & Alan Lastufka - Just A Boy lyrics

I'm just a boy
I watch cartoons and play with toys,
While others just see trash around my feet.
In my mind I like to fly away,
See the whole world in just one day
So the worries of my world don't bother me.

Oh, don't bring me down, I'm just a boy.

Now I'm growing up and people say
I look like my father more each day,
And I smile as my stomach turns inside.
Seventeen years of looking at his face,
Speed's the key as he starts his race,
And just a little pill to help him end his ride.
Oh, valium brings him down, Oh, I'm just a boy.
You can say that it's okay,
But I will never forget the day
A strange car came and he got inside,
And I knew he'd never make it through that ride.

Oh, I was just a boy.

Now I'm just a man,
Working day to day the best I can.
My office overlooks a busy street.
Now I'm finally free,
Thanks to a fortune on therapy.
I have a house and a car,
And they say I dress pretty neat.

Oh, you can't bring me down,
No, you can't bring me down,
I'm not a boy.

You can say that it's okay,
But I will never forget the day
I looked in the mirror and was filled with grief,
When I saw my father's face staring back at me.

Now I'm spiraling down
Spending weeks in a hospital gown,
And my money's all run out,
Who remembers what charity's about?

Oh, help, I'm falling down,
Oh, help me, I'm falling down,
I am just a boy.
