lyrics

Used to be a little boy
Same age as my daughter
Brother’s records on the stereo,
Never thought about birth order

Family like an army
You grow up a good soldier
You put on your uniform
You march where you’re ordered

Don’t fall back
Or you gotta make it up
Don’t talk back
Don’t ever interrupt

Flashlight was a microphone
Mirror was the camera eye
Boombox was a studio
Nothing felt like a lie, lie, lie

And those were my best days
And that was really me
That boy is hiding somewhere
That boy wants to be free

Don’t look back
Unless you’re mind’s made up
Don’t turn back
Unless you’re ready to grow up

Don’t look back
Unless you’re mind’s made up
Don’t turn back
Unless you’re ready to grow up

Under stars in my back yard
Family’s all asleep
I can think about the next day
But I can’t get too deep

Half life down the drain
I’m acting so strange
What if nobody thought of me?
What if nobody came?
Don’t react
Or you’ll look like the weak one
Stick to facts
Leave the feelings to the children
Don’t react
Or you’ll look like the weak one
Stick to facts
Leave the feelings to the children
Leave the feelings to the children
Leave the feelings to the children
Leave the feelings to the children
Leave the feelings to the children
