When you're young you hope to be
Menacing in vanity
Six feet tall, maybe more
Bigger now than before

They said it was leaving me
The magic was leaving me
I don't think so
I don't think so

They said it was leaving
They said it with joy
Now I could make this last forever
And be a boy, and be a boy

When you're young you hope to see
And carve your name into the street
And bounce your words off satellites
That keep the wasted up tonight

They said it was leaving me
The magic was leaving me
I don't think so
I don't think so

They said it was leaving
They said it with joy
Now I could make this last forever
And be a boy, and be a boy

There's safety in the jungle
If you treat it like a toy
Make sure you talk to strangers
And be a boy, and be a boy

Be a boy

They said it was leaving me
The magic was leaving me
I don't think so
I don't think so

All the boys are gonna be someone
Your time did come but now it's gone
Your time did come but now it's gone
It takes a big man to be someone

All the boys are gonna be someone
Your time did come but now it's gone
Your time did come but now it's gone
It takes a big man to be someone

I'm half your age and lived twice your life
And I own the streets, you walk tonight
Your time did come but it's no more
It takes a big man to be someone

I'm half your age and lived twice your life
And I don't sleep alone tonight
Your time did come but it's no more
It takes a big man to be someone
