When we were lost
We found each other
And headed sightless for the city

We had no way
Misfit and stray
Living beyond both means and pity

And I know you feel isolated
And I feel what you won't say
I don't care if the disbelievers don't understand
You're my pretty boy, always

I felt no pain
When you changed your name
We were each other's only family

Walking away
Would change the way
But never make your path less heavy

And I know you feel isolated
And I feel what you won't say
I don't care if the disbelievers don't understand
You're my pretty boy, always

And I know you feel isolated
And I feel what you won't say
I don't care if the disbelievers don't understand
You're my pretty boy

And I know you feel isolated
And I feel what you won't say
I don't care if the disbelievers don't understand
You're my pretty boy, always

Always

    General CommentI read this amazing story the other day. Then this song came on and I was a little alarmed at how relevant it seemed. It would now be hard to convince me that this song is NOT about their experience!

    My InterpretationMy take on the song is that it is about her younger brother who is gay. He was the only sibling she had. She lived with him. As they got older, he got married. But she still feels the same love for him and always will.
