Track Name: Boy
Our years were young
back when we found brazen love
bold, adolescent blood
running out of each of us

We bet our lives
surrounded by each parents side
We let our hearts decide
with these youthful eyes

Then an older love
crept up into both of us
We had us a child to love
Lost what the feeling was

And I swear to you
if there was one thing I could choose
It would be to feel for you
Wish I could feel for you

Don't you push me out before I'm gone
You're looking for a reason
To keep me out the places I belong
Let me take that boy I made back home

I can barely breathe
Bank account on hold and freeze
Lawyers and their families
try to keep the boy from me

And I see your face
and all the ways it seems to've changed
Hurting me for hurtin' sake
Who could raise you up that way?

Time will bring him face to face with you
and when he asks you where I was
I know you'll give him fragments of the truth
And I don't mind
Tell him all the pain I put you through
Say your father, he stopped loving me, but never for an instant stopped his loving you
