Simple sins aren't so easy to forgive
When they are given by self-serving men
And I was just a boy among these men
Telling me I'd never see her again

And I could not believe
And I could not go on
But I had to anyway
There was another day

And the nights we had to share
I don't think they were aware
That I was just a boy
Now they say that I'm a man
But I still see her as I am

Just a boy
Just another reason for my father to complain
Just another boy to bring my mother pain
And I tried all my life but they’re both still dead
One in the ground and the other in my head.
