Boy

‘Boy’

Boy, it’s been three long years since we met, And I say,
Boy, I’m still waiting.
Boy, you hurt me in ways I can’t forget, But I say,
Boy, I’m still here and I take it.

You know you’re dragging me down.
You’re dragging me down.

Chorus:
Boy, I keep waiting and I keep hoping,
I sit here, shattered, my heart open,
I keep searching, but I keep failing, maybe one day …

Come back to me Boy.

Boy, my friends tell me I should wake up, But I say,
Boy, I’m too busy dreaming.
And they cry “Girl! You know a wish is not enough”. I still say,
Boy, it’s better than you leaving

Why you dragging me down?
You’re dragging me down.

Chorus:
Boy, I keep waiting and I keep hoping,
I sit here, shattered, with my heart open,
I keep searching, but I keep failing, maybe one day …

Come back to me Boy.
Where do you go?

Chorus:
Boy, I keep waiting and I keep hoping,
I sit here, shattered, with my heart open,
I keep searching, but I keep failing, maybe one day,
You’ll come and save me.
You know I’m waiting, you know I’m hoping,
I sit here shattered …

Come back to me Boy.
Where do you go?

Lay Down, Sweet lady,
Don’t you know everything’s gonna be alright?
Lay Down, Sweet lady,
I feel your mystery tonight.

You’ve been walking, for so long,
Your feet are sore and seeking higher ground.
You’ve been talking, for so long,
Your mouth, too tired to make another sound.
You’ve been thinking, oh you’ve been thinking,
Your mind made up and unmade itself again.
Your eyes, so tired of watching, waiting,
They’ve decided to turn you in.

Lay Down, Sweet lady,
Don’t you know everything’s gonna be alright?
Lay Down, Sweet lady,
I feel your mystery tonight.

I feel so scared,
Having you here in my single bed.
I feel so strange,
Maybe tonight’s my night to come of age.

Lay Down, Sweet lady,
Don’t you know everything’s gonna be alright?
Lay Down, Sweet lady,
I feel your mystery tonight.

I’ve been wanting to tell you,
That every time I think of you I smile.
I’ve been wanting to help you,
Forget about your problems for a while.
But now you’re sitting beside me,
And the words don’t seem to fall out like they should.
I guess it’s down to me,
To pull you in and take it slow and make it good.

So Lay Down, Sweet lady,
Don’t you know everything’s gonna be alright?
Lay Down, Sweet lady,
I feel your mystery tonight.
