My Boy

Words and music by Brian May

In 1988, Brian played demos of some of the songs for his planned solo album to some friends. The three songs he played were "The Dark", "I'm Scared" and "My Boy". This final song was eventually released in 1998 on the charity compilation album "Lullabies With A Difference" in aid of Paces
Strange how soon the party's over
I should know by now
My hand no longer guides your footsteps
Now you guide your own
And all that's left is the sound of your voice
And your face as you were on the screen
Hush, don't you cry, there'll be no pain
The bad wolf has gone
He'll have no part of our game
All too soon the dream world's fading
Says farewell
Since my boy became a man
(Don't make it too soon)
My small boy
