                        C

    So long, so long, so long he's been away,

1. When I turned seventeen, we had passion, we had dreams,

                                                          D

    thought the love we were fighting for

                               C                        G

    was something holy, something more.

                    C                         G                  C                     G

    And when I turned twenty-one we were outside on the run,

                                                D

    when I walked out with my girl, hey,

                    C                             G

    we went halfway around the world.

 

      D                                         G

I dreamed I saw her standing there,

                          D                             - G

running for the boy inside the man.

                D                                          G

I was hit hard by the light, so bright it burned,

                       C

all at once I knew she'd understand,

                                C   - G                                  C     - G

the boy inside the man,       the boy inside the man.

 

              C                       G                    C                       G

3. When I turned twenty-five we were hungry, we had drive,

                                                D                          C                       G

    when I turned much older then, oh, then the boy was lost in pride.

               C                        G                   C                        G

    Now I just turned thirty-one, and I’ve lost and I have won,

                                             D                              C                   G

    still I've kept my dreams alive, oh, 'cause the boy will never die.
