Beautiful boy, don't you cry
I promise you won't be left behind
To face the world and all its fears
I'll take your pain and shed your tears

Beautiful boy, what will it take
For you to see you can make mistakes
I'll never judge, but make them your own
Don't sit in silence, afraid and alone

So beautiful boy, go play outside
Leave your mistakes and all your lies
No one will break your broken heart
I'll take it with me and have it guard

Beautiful boy, have faith in me
It's just not worth the life you lead
Reject my hand or hear my words
It's time for you to make a choice

But beautiful boy, try to remember
The things in life that truly matter
Don't forget that I love you so
I'd never be able to let you go

Beautiful boy, don't you cry
I promise you'll never be left behind…
