JUST A BOY Paul Stanley, Bob Ezrin [Rhy. Fig 1] [Rhy. Fig 2] Who steers the ship through the stormy sea If hope is lost then so are we While some eyes search for one to guide us Some are staring at me [Rhy. Fig 3a w/ Rhy. Fig 3b] [Rhy. Fig 4a w/ Rhy. Fig 4b] But I'm no hero Though I wish I could be [Rhy. Fig 5a w/ Rhy. Fig 5b] For I am just a boy, Too young to be sailing [Rhy. Fig 6a w/ End 1 and Rhy. Fig 6b w/ End 1] I am just a boy, And my future is unveiling And I'm so frightened of failing [Solo over Rhy. Fig 2] While some eyes search for one to guide us Some are staring at me [Rhy. Fig 3a w/ Rhy. Fig 3b] [Rhy. Fig 4a w/ Rhy. Fig 4b] But I'm no hero Though I wish I could be [Rhy. Fig 5a w/ Rhy. Fig 5b] For I am just a boy, Too young to be sailing [Rhy. Fig 6a w/ End 2 and Rhy. Fig 6b w/ End 2] I am just a boy, And my future is unveiling And I'm so frightened of failing
