Living A Boy's Adventure Tale

Album: Hunting High and Low (1985)
  • I've fixed my dwelling for the night
    Lights in pairs come passing by
    Where I hide
    I need some time now on my own
    Leave my loneliness alone
    To lick my wounds
    Night has found me just in time
    To help me close my eyes
    One more time

    Living a boy's adventure tale
    In so many ways
    Living a boy's adventure tale
    For so many days
    I'm living a boy's adventure tale
    Can't escape, if I wanted to
    Living a boy's adventure tale
    I may be dreaming but I feel awake

    I've been lost in so many places
    Seeked love in so many faces
    A change of weather,
    The rain pours down
    My head in hands,
    Pressed to the ground
    And where am I supposed to go now

    Living a boy's adventure tale
    In so many ways
    Living a boy's adventure tale (aah)
    Living a boy's adventure tale

    A voice I hear
    Living a boy's adventure tale
    Singing a lullaby for me
    Living a boy's adventure tale

    Because of you
    Living a boy's adventure
    Oh you know it's true
    Living a boy's adventure tale

    In so many ways (aah)
    For so many days
    I love you. I love you
    So many ways Writer/s: MAGNE (MAGS) FURUHOLMEN, PAL WAAKTAAR

  • Ang from Columbus, OhOk, I can go with that except the begging for change in the rain part. Where do you get that from?

    The line is "A change of weather/the rain pours down/my head in hands/ pressed to the ground"
