Man Meets Boy Lyrics

by Fefe Dobson

Man meets boy
Shattered summer, broken dreams
Too young to know
What he wants is so extreme

He held you down
Told you not to scream or cry
From that day forward, baby
You just wondered why

Oh, child, it's not your fault
Don't rub your wounds with salt

He can't hurt you anymore
I am your friend, my love will be your cure
He can't hurt you anymore
Give me your hand, I'll help you fight your war
'Cause he can't hurt you anymore

Man meets boy
Quiet churches, empty streets
And secrets stored
Behind close doors between the sheets

Oh, no one knows till it's too late
The damage deepens
In the end something's beneath
The surface creeping

You held it in so long
I knew that something's wrong

He can't hurt you anymore
I am your friend, my love will be your cure
He can't hurt you anymore
Give me your hand, I'll help you fight your war
'Cause he can't hurt you anymore

Baby, you're not alone
It's too late, the damage deepens
Don't turn your heart to stone
Something beneath the surface creeping

He can't hurt you anymore
I am your friend, my love will be your cure
He can't hurt you anymore
Give me your hand, I'll help you fight your war
'Cause he can't hurt you anymore
