I am a boy just like any other
I have a dad and mother
I love rock and roll
I am a boy sometimes my clothes don't fit right
sometimes I can't sleep at night
sometimes I just don't know

Just don't talk about it
try to forget about it
when you feel yourself get colder
When you feel the change
Everything feels strange
Pull yourself up like a soldier
I am a boy

I am a boy don't let the armor fool you
I put it on for school, yeah, it serves me well
I am a boy I still dream and wonder
but I conceal it under a conforming shell

Just don't talk about it
Learn to live without it
when you dream of arms to hold you
I still feel the same
Why did you all change?
Why did everyone get colder?
I am a boy
