I saw a little boy today, full of life, full of heart.
His emotions were there, his feelings were pure.
No secrets, no mystery.
I saw a little boy today, crying, tearing, fearing.
Fearing what he didnít want to do, not what he didnít know.
He knows everything without knowing anything.
I saw a little boy today, he passed me by without a single glance
Yet we have seen each other before, in years past.
Iíve seen him every day, but heís never seen me.
I saw a little boy today, except heís not so little.
He is grown, tall, strong, but still a child inside.
For he will never grow inside, nor would I want him to.
I saw a little boy today, surrounded by people.
People that love, people that care, or perhaps people that donít.
But he doesnít either, so long as theyíre there.
I saw a little boy today, in the reflection of the morning mirror.
Heís afraid of what he doesnít know, of what he can't see.
Of growing old, of being alone.
I saw a little boy today. Turns out the boy was me.
