NOW A MAN

So many ways you ignored me
Always the same- no apologies
But I had to stay, I didn’t know the way
Without you
I challenged you but I would always smile
Then wrestle through all your turnstiles
Now I’m gonna say-
Things I stowed away a long time
A long time ago

Seaside, dreaming child
All he wanted was to sail away
In the moonshine
So far - wishing star
Would that you could help me sail away

Then seven years went by
I taught myself to learn
Just how I might survive-
I won’t put up a fight
I’ll do as you say

Hillside, growing child
Now he’s thinking should he run away
In the moonshine
So far - wishing star
Would that you could help me sail away

He stands, now a man
Still he wishes he should sail away
In the moonshine
So far - wishing star
Would that you could help me sail away
