New Monkees – Boy Inside The Man lyrics

So long
So long
So long
He's been away
So long
So long
So long he's back again
I turned seventeen
We had passion we had dreams
Thought the love we were fighting for
Was something holy
Something more.

When I turned twenty-one
We were outside on the run.
When I walked out with my girl

We went halfway 'round the world

I dreamed than I saw her standing there
Running for the boy inside the man
I was hit hard by a light so bight it burned
All at once I knew she'd understand

Boy inside the man
The boy inside he man.

When I turned tweniy-five
We were hungry we had drive
When I turned much older then
When the boy was lost in pride
Now I just turned thirty-one
I have lost and I have won
Still I've kept my dreams alive
'cause this boy will never die

Chorus I dreamed... Ah Do you understand
The boy inside the man
Chorus I reamed...

So long
So long
So long
You been away
So long
So long
So long
You're back again

Sister cool this face
As if it's carved in stone
Don't leave m in his place
Like a boy wihout a home (repeat)
Boy inside the man
