There was a boy who ran away
From what he didn't know
And whom he wouldn't say he just had to go
Something it snapped inside of him as he fled from a nameless threat
Crowds of people stand aloof in Waterloo there's no sunset
And when he gets to that mythic place the streets are
Dirty dark and deep
There is no rest there is no place to lay a head to sleep
There was a boy who ran away from what he didn't know
And whom he wouldn't say he just had to go
I went to so much trouble to banish you from my side
He said that your an accident
An accident about which I should forget
And now that the wheel has gone around he's back where he belongs
And he knows there is no hope only solace in the words of this song
There was a boy who ran away from what he didn't know
And whom he wouldn't say he just had to go
