Lost Boy
Greg Lyrics


I left my home still as a child
I walked a thousand sorry miles
To wait for my father, to gather up his tools

He said my boy you've got to run
Don't wait for me, don't wait for mum
We'll come get you, when it's safe for us to move

So I waited many years,
Held back the pain behind my tears
For my father, to come find me like he said

And in that time I was alone,
So many years without my home
I made brothers of a different kind instead

And at the time I didn't know,
Just how hard the wind could blow
Towards disaster, and the things that I would see

I never found my father,
I never found my mother
Even would I know in my lifetime I will be

A hero into the masses,
To those born without chances
There's a freedom that everyone deserves

I know there's greed and there's corruption
I've seen death and mass destruction
But I'm telling you, and I hope that I'm heard

I will not be commanded,
I will not be controlled
And I will not let my future go on,
Without the help of my soul

And I will not be commanded,
And I will not be controlled
And I will not let my future go on,
Without the help of my soul

And I will not be commanded,
And I will not be controlled
And I will not let my future go on,
Without the help of my soul

I will not be commanded,
I will not be controlled
And I will not let my future go on,
Without the help of my soul

Thank you Brian. You have no idea what it means to me to receive this kind of message. I am truly moved by your words. I hope that you are feeling well and that you can recover fully from your illness. Congratulations for admitting yourself. I am sure that wasn't easy.
All the best,

I left my home still as a child
I walked a thousand sorry miles
To wait for my father to gather up his tools
He said my boy you've got to run
Don't wait for me, don't wait for mum
We'll come get you when it's safe for us to move
So I waited many years
Held back the pain behind my tears
For my father to come find me like he said
In that time I was alone
So many years without my home
I made brothers of a different kind instead

At the time I didn't know
Just how hard the wind could blow
Towards disaster, and the things that I would see
I never found my father
I never found my mother either
But I know that in my lifetime I will be
A hero to the masses
To those born without chances
There's a freedom that everyone deserves
I know there's greed and there's corruption
I've seen death and mass destruction
But I'm telling you and I hope that I am heard
I will not be commanded
I will not be controlled
I will not let my future go on, without the help of my soul

Eu deixei minha casa ainda criança
Eu caminhei por mil tristes milhas
Para esperar meu pai recolher suas ferramentas
Ele disse "meu garoto, você tem que fugir"
Não me espere, não espere sua mãe
Nós vamos buscá-lo quando for seguro para nós
Então eu esperei muitos anos
Retida a dor por trás de minhas lágrimas
Para meu pai vir me encontrar como ele havia dito
Nessa época eu estava sozinho
Tantos anos sem minha casa
Eu fiz irmãos de um tipo diferente
Naquela época eu não sabia
O quão duro o vento pode soprar
Para o desastre, e as coisas que eu gostaria de ver
Eu nunca encontrei meu pai
Eu nunca encontrei minha mãe
Mas eu sei que em minha vida serei
Um herói para as massas
Para aqueles que nasceram sem chances
Há uma liberdade que todos merecem
Eu sei que há ganância e há corrupção
Eu vi a morte e destruição em massa
Mas eu estou dizendo a você e espero ser ouvido
Eu não serei comandado
Eu não serei controlado
Eu não deixarei meu futuro seguir em frente, sem a minha alma
