forever boys – paroles john cotter

remember a tree house on top of the hill
the one place we could see our whole town
kings in our castle, we dreamed from the throne

up there being boys didn’t count

our imaginations ran wild in the summer air
and i could really be the president
you could sail the seven seas as captain of your ship
no limit to the choices that we had

forever boys, we’d survive
by looking at the world through childlike eyes
though our muscles ache, and our hair falls away
the age we remain is our choice
inside we’ll be forever boys

we found manhood in new sets of clothes
changing from torn jeans to suits
men are expected to put away their toys
but not us, we exchanged old for new

traded in the tree house for a three bedroom home
and an attic full of trains that i run
you ride to work in your red convertible
it seems to me that we’re still havin’ fun

forever boys, we’d survive
by looking at the world through childlike eyes
though our muscles ache, and our hair falls away
the age we remain is our choice
inside we’ll be forever boys
