My Bold Child

from by Charles Lee

lyrics

They say it's a long way down
They say it's a long way down from the side of the road
Where he wanted to know just how near the edge he could go.

Tonight the air breathes cold, the wind carries news from the ground below.
This game the dark plays with me, teasing and sly, I won't believe
That figure cannot possibly be...
This is a trick my eyes have played on me
Another angle and then I'll see
At the foot of this cliff, unmistakably

They say it's a long way down
They say it's a long way down from the side of the road
Where he wanted to know just how near the edge he could go.

Son, brush off the dirt, get off the ground
I know you're just playing a fool with me
Now come back to the road, it's hard to go down
I don't think I can climb down so deep
Why won't you talk to me?
Is there something I failed to see?
Here I am, please just breathe.
My bold child, please don't leave.

They say it's a long way down
They say it's a long way down from the side of the road
Where he wanted to know just how near the edge he could go.

Right now,
I'd give anything right now.
Please, I'd give anything...
