The boy

And I’m the boy
The one who loved you
Under the snow in Beaumont
On the beach in July
 
I am the one seen
In that photograph
Cowboy cousin Thomas
Outfit
 
I am the boy
The one who loved you
I’ve changed forgive me
Sometimes you, you recognise me
 
I am the boy
Faded in clothing 1
As in inside
 
And I am the one
In February in Rouen
Who wants to perform Barbara 2
For twenty one punters
 
One evening in theatre three
One evening a long time ago
I stayed there

I am the boy
The one who hoped
I’ve changed, forgive me
But you, sometimes you recognise me

In the dressing room at eight
The same inside
