BOY FROM NOWHERE Tom Jones The nights grow cold My search for gold Is leading nowhere Which ever lonely road I take It seems to go where It's a fight to survive Just until tomorrow How can I display What I know I'm worthy of When they turn me away The doors are closed To such as I A boy from nowhere But not to those Who feel they find The right to go where They'll be met with respect No humiliation A man's place on earth I have come to realise Is decided at birth So what's the future No matter where I go I will still belong In abolition Where we don't know where Our next bed is coming from Something's wrong! I vow to stray I won't remain A boy from nowhere There has to be A place for me And I must go there I don't fantasize Unlike a million others Who must bow and scrape For my one means of escape Is to flourish a cape I've thought too long to fight The Gods if they oppose me I have to win I won't give in No-one who knows me Would expect me to fail For the want of trying Not a man alive Had to beg, or steal, or fight More than me to survive So what's the future No matter where I go I will still belong In abolition Where good honest men grow weak And the rich grow strong Something's wrong! Another jolt, another bolt A boy from nowhere My destiny will guarantee That I'll only go where It's a fight to survive Just until tomorrow One more mouth to feed And the way things are 'round here That's the last thing they need
