My Boy

You're sleeping son, I know 
But, really, this can't wait 
I wanted to explain 
Before it gets too late 
For your mother and me 
Love has finally died 
This is no happy home 
But God knows how I've tried 


Because you're all I have, my boy 
You are my life, my pride, my joy 
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy 


I know it's hard to understand 
Why did we ever start? 
We're more like strangers now 
Each acting out a part 
I have laughed, I have cried 
I have lost every game 
Taken all I can take 
But I'll stay just the same 


Because you're all I have, my boy 
You are my life, my pride, my joy 
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy 
Sleep on, you haven't heard a word 


Perhaps it's just as well 
Why spoil your little dreams 
Why put you through the hell 
Life is no fairytale 
As one day you will know 
But now you're just a child 
I'll stay her and watch you grow 


Because you're all I have, my boy 
You are my life, my pride, my joy 
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy
