Little Boy

Little boy, what are you doing?
Do you have time to talk to me?
Little boy, why are you smiling?
Does it mean you have somewhere to be?

Little boy, don't leave me all alone.
On this busy street so far from home.
Little boy, and I don't mean to boast.
But do you know I'm in love with the Holy Ghost?

Little boy, like that little tyke.
Little boy, with his finger in the dyke.
Little boy, I know how you feel.
Little boy, life feels so unreal.

Little boy, I was once like you.
I know it seems really hard to believe.
Little boy, playing, laughing too.
Oh, life's so hard, you must be relieved.

Little boy, why are you crying?
It doesn't seem your style.
Little boy's mother is leaving in only a little while.

Little boy, like that little tyke.
Little boy, with his finger in the dyke.
Little boy, I know how you feel.
Little boy, life feels so unreal.

Little boy, I promise I'll care for you.
Little boy, is there anything I can do?

Little boy, like that little tyke.
Little boy, with his finger in the dyke.
Little boy, I know how you feel.
Little boy, life feels so unreal.

Little boy, now that you are saved.
Little boy, expecting nothing, but you gave.
Little boy, walking away from the grave.
Little boy, oh boy, you are brave.
