  • It's been such a long week
    So much crying
    I no longer see a future
    I've been told when I get older
    That I'll understand it all

    But I'm not sure if I want to
    Running into her arms
    At the school gates
    She whispers that I'm a poor kid
    And Granny takes me on her knee
    She tells me I'm too sensitive
    She makes me sad

    She makes me feel like an old man
    She makes me feel like an old man

    They took the game right out of it
    They took the game right out of it

    When I am a man
    I will be an astronaut
    And find Peter Pan

    Second star on the right
    Straight on 'til morning
    Second star on the right
    Straight on 'til morning

    Dennis loves to look
    In the mirror
    He tells me that he is beautiful
    So I look too, and what do I see?
    My eyes are full
    But my face is empty

    He's got a photo
    Of his hero
    He keeps it under his pillow
    But I've got a pin-up
    From a newspaper
    Of Peter Pan

    I found it in a locket
    I hide it in my pocket

    They took the game right out of it
    They took the game right out of it

    When I am a man
    I will be an astronaut
    And find Peter Pan

    Second star on the right
    Straight on 'til morning
    Second star on the right
    Straight on 'til morning
    Second star on the right
    Straight on 'til morning

    "When you wish upon a star
    Makes no difference who you are
    When you wish upon a star
    Your dreams come true" Writer/s: KATE BUSH
