lyrics

You were looking for someone to hold your hand
I was walking down the avenue, away from you
I don't want to be your special one just yet
I'm not old enough, I'm only about seven years old in my head
And I needed you more than I wanted you before

'Cause I can't sing the little boy blues
Without you, without you
Well I've tried but what can I do
Without you, without you

I don't want this kind of trouble yet
I just want to play on the slides and swings
And ride my bike and kick a ball and things
I want to hide away in my treehouse and sing

'Cause I can't sing the little boy blues
Without you, without you
Well I've tried but what can I do
Without you, without you

I didn't understand why you looked at me that way
Why can't you believe that just 'cause you right down our names and add them up
Whatever percentage it scores it doesn't mean we're in love
It doesn't mean that yet, and I'm only about seven years old in my head
And I needed you more than I wanted you before

'Cause I can't sing the little boy blues
Without you, without you
Well I've tried but what can I do
Without you, without you
And I can't pretend I'm not one piece without you
Without you, without you
So please wait just a couple more years
'Til I'm through, I'm through
Just please wait just another few more years
And I'll take you to review

But for now can't we just play in the trees
And now can't we just be friends
And now let's just take our pretty little time
'Cause I still need you

'Cause I can't sing the little boy blues
Without you, without you
Well I've tried but what can I do
Without you, without you
