When I was a boy, I searched for the love
That I’d never known and never been shown.
I was lost, I was lonely, I’d spend time thinking… if only.
I’d search for that love in the strangest of places
Oblivious to any and all danger.
I so needed to love, to feel and belong to somebody,
And when love finally found me I was caught by surprise
Everything I’d wanted was there in front of me.
It seemed that overnight this love
turned me into the man I’d always wanted to be.
I stood proud, I walked proud, I laughed aloud,
I was free from all that loneliness and longing.
And the strangest thing about my life is,
That now that that love has flown
I have turned back into that same boy again
Lost and lonely, and always thinking…if only
