Amel Larrieux - Boy at the Window lyrics

[Verse 1]
She was wearing shocking pink and jewelry of gold
Papa said, "Son, isn't she fine?"
Knew he would be out all night, though son is only 9 years old
This is how he's forced to spend his time
Looking out his window into someone else's home
Watching mother, father, child at play
Wishing he could be a part but it's too hard to forget he's alone
A typical day

[Chorus]
The boy at the window, one more forgotten son
Ah, looking to the corner to see what he'll become
The boy at the window, if he's still sitting there
Are you even gonna care?

[Verse 2
Papa always tells his son
"Keep sitting at our window
Don't end up like me, watch from above
You can't go wrong"
More and more, son's thinking won't be too far but I must go in his eyes
The corner is the only place he can belong
Son is smart enough to see it, won't make him somebody
It's better than living with the hypocrisies above
No more smelling hoes and liquor on the breath of daddy
Rather smell it from the breath of brothers he don't know or love

[Chorus]
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/amel-larrieux/-/boy-at-the-window.html]
The boy at the window, one more forgotten son
Ah, looking to the corner to see what he'll become
The boy at the window, if he's still sitting there
Are you even gonna care?

[Bridge]
Remember when the boy was young and untouched
Happy with his window view, but look, it's not enough
His dreams are in the gutter and now he's just a number
All because he wanted to belong
All because he wanted to belong

[Verse 3]
So he learned to play the role of hustler with no feeling
Thinking, "They'll accept me if I prove that I'm real hard"
Now he's learning firsthand of the word and its true meaning
The window he looks out of now includes real iron bars

[Chorus (2x)]
The boy at the window, one more forgotten son
Ah, looking to the corner to see what he'll become
The boy at the window, if he's still sitting there
Are you even gonna care?

[Outro]
Are you even gonna
Gonna care?
Gonna care, gonna care, gonna care
Gonna care
