Every Boy (Needs A Girl)

From the Michael Andrew album Michael Andrew
Words and music by Michael Andrew Itzoe

Stylistically, I based this one on "The Lovers That Never Were" by Paul McCartney and Elvis Costello. But there may be some thematic hints in there somewhere, too, I think.

Lyrics

Every boy needs a girl
Every heart needs a second chance
Some boys know what to do
When love slips through their hands
But this boy is still alone

Every boy needs a girl
Every hand needs a hand to hold
Some boys do what they can
To seem a man so bold
But this boy is still afraid

Oh, and this boy knows what it takes
Oh, 'cause this boy has been there before
Oh, and this boy's been down on his hands and knees
And this boy needs someone tonight

Oh, and this boy knows what it takes
Oh, 'cause this boy has been there before
Oh, and this boy's been down on his hands and knees
And this boy needs someone tonight

Every boy needs a girl
Every mind has a need to know
Some boys hope, some boys pray
Some boys wait for love to show
And this boy is waiting for you

Yes, this boy is waiting
Yes, this boy is waiting
Yes, this boy is waiting for you
