Song Description

This song is about one young boys desperate situation- homelife, abuse etc, and how easy it is for it to go unoticed, or maybe we just don't want to look that hard.

Story Behind the Song

I was moved and quite disturbed by the very real story of just such a lad told during a childrens charity television marathon, a little cheesy? well ok, but that fact remained that this child had suffered unbelievable abuse right under the noses of the au

Broadjam Member Reviews

Wow, what a beautifully sad, emotion-provoking song. Beautiful guitar work and nicely sung, heart-wrenching lyrics. Very haunting.

    - Dianne MacAdam

Excellent recording and performance of a great song.
Reminiscent of Nick Drake but lyrics are more direct and I think that is powerful.
Still leaves me wanting to know more about thus character.

    - Andrew Jon Thomson & the All Star Superband
Lyrics

Calling Out

In a doorway in the darkness
Sits a young boy in despair
He wishes he was invisible
But no-one cares

And some say he's just lazy
He's been trouble all along
And he'll get just what's coming
End up where he belongs

But he's calling out
Yes he's calling out
He doesn't understand
What the anger's all about
Calling out
Yes he's calling out
If only we could hear him now

When he hears the chimes at midnight
He's walking homeward slow
It's not as if they'd miss him
But he's nowhere else to go

He knows if he can make it
Into bed without a fight
A safer place awaits him
In his dreams at night

But he's calling out
Yes he's calling out
He doesn't understand
What the anger's all about
Calling out
Yes he's calling out
If only we could hear him now

In his dreams he can fly
He's an eagle in the sky
Nobody can tie him to the ground
There's no pain, there's no tears
And he's far away from here
Everything is quiet for miles around

In the morning with the daylight
Comes another round of lies
In the classroom he's withdrawn
No-one's surprised

And he's hiding his emotions
And the bruises from last night
He needs to hear it's not his fault
And everything's alright

But he's calling out
Yes he's calling out
He doesn't understand
What the anger's all about
Calling out
Yes he's calling out
If only we could hear him now
