Bonnie Raitt – What Do You Want The Boy To Do lyrics

So you think the man is crazy
He eats up your lies
Like they're good for him
Apple pie, he don't even cry

He's not a fool
He's just tryin' to do
What his heart says to
To love you

As you take to the wind
To the wind again my friend
As he breaks down within
Within, within, within
He waits for you patiently
Hopin' that one day you'll see
That all he really wants to be
Is yours and yours alone eternally

What do you want the boy to do?
Don't you see you're breaking the child in two?
What do you want the boy to do?
All he really wants is you

He knows what you are
Still he'll be up game
Saved the world today
But you know better
You don't go around him

Now and then you promise
All the way out things that you're gonna get
You will see, you will be,
So damn glad that you finally found him

As he watches you come and go
Or you show
As he watched you promise a zero
He waits for you patiently
Hopin' that one day you'll see
That all he really wants to be
Is yours and yours alone eternally

What do you want the boy to do?
Don't you see you're breaking the child in two?
What do you want the boy to do?
Don't you see that you're breaking the child in two?
