lyrics

Little Boy Blue, Little Boy Blue,
If I'd seen the sights you've seen, I would sleep too
Here in the corn, away from the call of the farmer's wife

If I had your past, I would sleep rough
Questions come easy, but they're not enough
To say all the words unspoken;
To find what is lost, to heal what has been broken

Little Boy Blue, don't venture there
The city will swallow you up in its air
And misery's touch will leave you with nothing,
Just lifeless eyes

And there will be nothing left here
All I'll have is your song lingering in my ear!

Little Boy Blue, Little Boy Blue! I don't want it to be this way
I have given you everything

I'll still hold on to each word that you say
'till the horn of the ship sounds and takes you away
With promises you made to me
now I am left stranded here with your song in my ears

Little Boy Blue, Little Boy Blue! I don't want it to be this way
I have given you everything

Little Boy Blue, open your eyes
I want one last look before you make me cry
