"Spirit of a Boy, Wisdom of a Man" as written by and Glen/bruce Burtnik....
He was 16, tender and tough.
She was too, and he'd do anything to prove his love.
With so much riding on the choice at hand,
The spirit of a boy, or the wisdom of a man.

Hearts caught fire and love ran wild.
She cried the day she called to say she was having his child.
With so much riding on the choice at hand,
The spirit of a boy or the wisdom of a man.

There's a constant contradiction, what feels good and what feels right.
But, you live with decisions that you make in your life.
And what steers your direction is hard to understand,
The spirit of a boy, or the wisdom of a man

Now he drives a diesel out of Dallas,
Hauling cars out to the coast.
It ain't the dream that he remembered, just a few short years ago.
But tonight at a truck stop, while drinking a cup,
The waitress grins and winks at him,
And says,
