When I was a boy, you’d look at me,
and wonder what a man I’d be.
You’d lift me up when I was down,
and turn to smiles my every frown.
We’d play alone, just you and me,
‘cause we were two, instead of three.
My cuts and scrapes you’d always fix,
and always laugh when I played tricks.
Through silly, sad, or serious,
they all could see that it was us…
Just you and me!
But, I was a boy, and I’d look at you,
and feel your love that was so true.
So every day, the world would see,
some change that you had made in me.
I’d feel the tears roll down your cheek,
when times were bad, or they got bleak.
And I’d lift you up when you were down,
and turn to smiles your every frown.
‘Cause, as a boy you looked at me,
and wondered ‘bout the man I’d be.
