Words and music by dar williams
I won't forget when peter pan came to my house, took my hand
I said I was a boy; I'm glad he didn't check.I learned to fly, I learned to fight
I lived a whole life in one night
We saved each other's lives out on the pirate's deck.
And I remember that night
When I'm leaving a late night with some friends
And I hear somebody tell me it's not safe, someone should help me
I need to find a nice man to walk me home.
When I was a boy, I scared the pants off of my mom,
Climbed what I could climb upon
And I don't know how I survived,I guess I knew the tricks that all boys knew.
And you can walk me home, but I was a boy, too.
