Lyrics

You were a boy
Before
You became a man
I don't see the join
And you ran with your pals in the sun
You turned around and they were gone
Again...

A sick boy should be treated!
So easily defeated
I just don't understand
So you ran with your pals in the sun
You turned around you were alone
Again...

And you ran back to Ma
Which set the pace
For the rest of your days

You ran back to Ma
Which set the pace
For the rest of your days

You ran back to Ma
Which set the pace
For the rest of your days

And now
There is something that you should know
There is something that you should know
The girl of your dreams
Is here all alone
The girl of your dreams
Is here all alone
The girl of your dreams
Is sad and all alone
The girl of your dreams
Is here and all alone
There is something that you should know
There is something that you should know
The girl of your dreams
Is all alone
The girl of your dreams
Is sad and is all alone
The girl of your dreams
Is sad and is really all alone
There is something that you should know

Help me
Help me
Help...
