Robert Cray – Little Boy Big lyrics

So it's all said and done
And you promised you wouldn't do it again

Now where are you going?
You've knocked on someone else's door
And you jived and told some great big lies about it
Don't you think they know you?

Why, when something goes wrong
Do you walk away from love
Just like it was nothing?

You hide and then you move on
You don't walk away from a good love
No, little boy big

Now she begged and pleaded with you
Tried and she tried and she tried
Everything that she could

Could you feel it?
You got one more go round this time, little fella
You better take hold to it if you can
You know you've got to, can you feel it?

You hide when something goes wrong
Even if it's just a little thing
That throws you off
Why can't you be strong?
You don't walk away from a good love, no

Why, when something goes wrong
Turn your back and walk away from love
Oh, just like it was nothing

You hide and then you move on
You can't walk away from a good love
No, little boy big

No, no, la la la
Little boy big

With your hands in your pocket
Walkin' down the street singin'

La la la, oh, little boy
Little boy big
