lyrics

He still doesn’t know if he has crossed that line
He still thinks of himself as a wunderkind
Innocence lost
He made it across
But he was a child in the back of his mind

He’s waiting for someone to give him a sign
He doesn’t know what to look for or what he’ll ever find
Hair on his chest
In his Sunday best
He was a child in the back of his mind

A girl caught his fancy and in due time
He would link to her in a tie that would bind
They had intercourse
Then they were divorced
Still he was a child in the back of his mind

He lost all his money, but he felt fine
He was content to leave it all behind
Kicked out of his home
He was free to roam
Cuz he was a child in the back of his mind

Then came the year that both the parents he had died
He wrote a eulogy on paper that was lined
Read it to the mourners
Dressed in blackened furs
Still he was a child in the back of his mind

One day somebody handed him a life insurance plan
He crumpled it up and threw it into the garbage can
He will live forever
He’ll fly to Never, Never
Always a boy and never a man
Always a boy and never a man
