Jon Valley – Confessions Of A Wooden Boy lyrics

Did you know' that I always wanted to love you?
But I' didn't know how to love anyone.
That I was just too distant inside' to ever reach out across that void.
That I was just pretending' my acting skills were my toy' and my tool.
To get along in this world, ah honey, to survive the slings and arrows'
To walk the streets without screaming' to navigate the narrows.

And did you know' that I use to watch you while you were sleeping'
Laying there so precious in the moonlight' the moonlight' and I'
Use to think to myself' what a lucky man I am.

And did you know' that I held my head up so high'
That day we held hands in the park? '
Seems like such a small thing' my god what they take for granted'
But it was just everything, everything to me.

And did you know' that I always knew' that we'd break apart'
And you'd run along to'
A real live boy?
