Song Description

This song features a simple fingerpicking guitar with minimal percussion and a single vocal. The subject matter is not standard pop song material and attempts to look at the situation from a child's point of view.

Story Behind the Song

"Insired" isn't the right word because of the tragic subject matter, but this song came to me as a result of the recent Baby P case and other similar child abuse cases.

Lyrics

LITTLE BOY BLUE

JUST A CHILD WHO IS GROWING
I DON'T KNOW WHO I AM
OPEN FIRES ARE STILL GLOWING
STAY AWAY IF YOU CAN
MY SECRET WORLD IS CALLING
I THINK I'M FALLING FROM THE WIRE

JUST A CHILD WHO IS WEEPING
TEARS THAT FALL INTO SPACE
GOLDEN SLUMBERS FOR SLEEPING
NEVER COME TO THIS PLACE
NIGHTMARE DREAMS ARE WAITING
ANTICIPATING SCREAMS FROM HELL

PRETTY MAIDS ALL IN A ROW
THIS LITTLE PIGGIE STAYED HOME
WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS I KNOW I WILL FALL
WISH I COULD FOLLOW THE SUN
HIDE UNTIL MORNING HAS COME
LITTLE BOY BLUE COME BLOW YOUR HORN

JUST A CHILD WHO IS BLEEDING
WONDER WHEN I'LL BE LEAVING
SHADOWS FALL ON MY PILLOW
WEEP ALONG WITH THE WILLOW
GOD I FEEL OLDER
THERE IS A COLD WIND THROUGH MY BONES TONIGHT

COW WILL JUMP OVER THE MOON
JACK WILL FALL DOWN ALL TOO SOON
WISH I COULD RUN AWAY WITH THE SPOON
ALL THE KING'S HORSES AND MEN
COULDN'T PUT ME BACK AGAIN
LITTLE BOY BLUE COME BLOW YOUR HORN
