Little boy lost
In search of little boy found
You go a wondering, wandering
When will you find
What's on the tip of your mind
Why are you blind
To all you ever were, never were, really are, nearly are.
Little boy false
In search of little boy true
Will you be ever done
Traveling, always unraveling...you...you...
Could lead you farther astray
And as for fishing in streams, for pieces of dreams
Those pieces will never fit, what is the sense of it.
Little boy blue
Don't let your little sheep roam
It's time come blow your horn
Meet the morn', look and see, can you be, far from home.
