Age 5, just a little boy shy
Is he ready for the big surprise
He'll be playing lego in a dream
When the shadows come to life

Age 9 and he should've been fine
With a secret he's sure to keep
Two times had to tell a little lie
For the sake of him and me

Now it's over
I need closure

Hey, look what you did to me
When you were taking me home
Getting me stoned
Leave me alone
I waited for mom to comfort me
But when I opened my mouth
Don't say nothing, shhh

Age 12 and it isn't going well
Now it's 3 years to the day
Confused, but unlike you
This feeling won't go away

16 and the woman down the street
Has invited him to come inside
The first time, it didn't feel right
It'll be the last time he tries

Hey, look what you did to me
When you were taking me home
Getting me stoned
Leave me alone
I waited for mom to comfort me
But when I opened my mouth
Don't say nothings wrong
I won't say nothings wrong

I won't say, I won't say
I won't say, I won't say
I won't say, I won't say

17, all he's ever seen
Is the living in between the lies
It's kind of funny how a mind
Can keep living in denial

18 is a very strange scene
He's still playing with the past
Expelled, maybe someone could've helped
If someone had known to ask

Hey, look what you did to me
When you were taking me home
Getting me stoned
Leave me alone
I waited for mom to comfort me
But when I opened my mouth
Don't say nothing, shhh

19 and he's innocently
Parked right beside a school
He stares at a boy sitting there
And the boy stares at him too
He walks over
He needs closure
