Where is my boy?
I saw you come out of a scene
Maybe in some kind of dream
Something that never comes

Time that I take
See over in arms I'll raise
I'll race in to find you
I'll race in to find you

Time stands
I open your eyes to my world
I see you come out of it all
Unharmed and unscathed
And shouting, oh

Come on in
In houses I live in
And changes you're making
To the state of affairs

Calling "where is my boy?"
I have seen you so often
I cry "where is my boy?"
Oh, have you all forgotten?

And in some kind of dream
Have I seen you before
Oh, have I seen you before?
Oh, where is my boy?

So come all the way
Changing your number
Changing the house where you live
Change your lines

Have I seen you before?
In some kind of a dream?
In a place you've forgotten
A place I've forgotten

So where is my boy?
When I kneel in your arms
I flew awry
Where is my boy?

Have I seen you before?
In some kind of a dream?
Have I seen you before?
In some kind of a dream?

In my hands you'll fall
Open in as it seems
Have I seen you before?

Oh baby, your arms and your legs are shattered
Where is my boy?
Where is my boy?

I said "where is my boy?"
Have you seen me before?
When I look in your eyes
Tell me "he had to go"

Said "I seen you before
In some kind of dream"
Seems I've seen you before
In some kind of a dream

I say "where is the boy?"
Have I seen you before?
Yeah, I saw you before
In some kind of a dream

I say "where was my head?
When I needed it most?"
Oh, I stayed here before
Yes I stay in the place I know

    General CommentI think it's just about his son growing up and changing, though it is a beautiful song.

    General CommentI think it's about a boy who ran away and this is the mother (or the father) trying to find him.

    General CommentI feel this song talks about a girl thinking there is no hope for a trustworthy boy that exist anymore. she is convinced that they are all liars and dealers. but still she has the dream of a boy, that stands out and the possibility that he may exist, the golden boy everyone wants. he that moves from houses "minds" constantly, coming into peoples lifes influencing them that there is good. now she asks where is her boy? she wants a keeper.

    My InterpretationI have found two odd interpretations in my perspective,

    1) I think it's about a man meeting the son he never had. He says "Have I seen you before?" because it's the man he always hoped to raise. Their connection is so profound.

    2) It could alternatively be a rhetorical question aimed at the speaker/the man himself. He could be asking himself why he threw away his potential. He compares who he is today with the boy he used to be. ' "Have I seen you before?", tired soul?'

    General CommentTo me, this song has always been about a boy who was secretly in love with another boy. Unfortunately for the one who's in love, it is unrequited because the other guy is straight. In the beginning of the song, he is imagining his dream guy and wondering if he's really seen him before. In his mind, he knows exactly how everything is going to pan out. Later on in the song, the other guy seems to actually be real. The boy who is in love is not far from being a stalker. As a matter of fact, he probably is. The other boy has moved away, changed his number, and has a new life. I imagine at some point, the boy in love made his move and it wasn't taken too well from the other. Whether or not this was the cause of the other guy moving is unknown. However, we know enough to understand that the straight guy didn't deem it necessary to inform him of his new whereabouts or his new number.

    In the end, the gay boy remains in love yet alone. He stays in the place he knows, wondering what happened to his boy. It's very sad to me. This is one of the saddest songs I know.
