When The Morning Comes ( The Boy )


The boy's off the rails again, he's gone and lost himself
He'll try to find his way back home, but he doesn't want your help.
'Don't waste your words on me', the boy says in his way
The girl behind him starts to cry, but he doesn't shift his gaze.

Where has he been?
What has he done?
Is all forgotten when the morning comes.

His senses start to burn, his friends become his foes.
He'll be your friend again in time, it's just the way it goes.
It's all just bravado, the boy's a drama queen,
You know he's just like you and me, he likes to cause a scene.

But where has he been?
What has he done?
Is all forgotten when the morning comes. 

It's then seeped into his mind, he tries to understand.
Before you take the leap of faith, you let go of a hand hand.
The world's just one big sigh, inhaled and blown away
Surface only to correct, the value of his day.


Where have you been?
What have you done?
Can you forgive him, when the morning comes?

Listen up!?  Fancy listening to it...?

Well spotted MBB...I cannot lie - it is just part-baked by me. The lyrics are from my son's band (Casino) and there is a video from the band performing the song just two posts back!

There were a lot of positive comments on it, but when Blogger was under construction last week, it wiped them all away, so any one interested PLEASE HAVE A LISTEN AGAIN! It's not as long as my poem just 2 verses. It really is easy on the ear and age-gap friendly!

Thank you Mummy Boo Bear! And I hope you enjoy the song!
