3. Let the boy dream

He fills up his head with ideas of fame
He thinks that his life won’t always be the same
He’s gonna make it, gonna get it together
What a shame we know better, we know better

But we'll let the boy dream
Oh yes, we'll let the boy dream
Let the boy dream, it can’t do any harm
Let the boy dream

He likes to think he has something new
Won’t be long now until the big breakthrough
‘It wasn’t easy’, he hears himself saying
You’ve just got to keep on hoping and praying, hoping and praying

Sitting alone with just his guitar
He thinks his songs are gonna take him far
We really love him but we’ll soon have enough
It’s about time he began to grow up, began to grow up
