On the edge of the lamplight
A little boy stays
Close enough to be seen
Far enough to be safe
Sitting down in the lamplight
A little boy's gaze
Falters from the blank stars
Fishes through the swollen haze
Hiding out in the moonlight
A little boy plays
All alone in a crowd
Firmly set in his ways
Climbing back to the lamplight
A little boy takes
A last look, a last chance
Gone away too afraid
And he waits...
And he waits...
And he waits...
For another chance
Floating up in the limelight
A little boy weighs
Half as much as he did
When he was offstage
Crashing down in the lamplight
A little boy razed
Every hope that he had
Every dream that he chased
Slipping back to the lamplight
A little boy waits
Waterfalls down his cheeks
A last wish too late
On the edge of the lamplight
A little boy stays
Close enough to be seen
Far enough to be safe
