about

Inspired by a chance sighting and couple of shy interactions. Poor Boy is a departure from the Swamp Noir aesthetic and ventures more into M. Ward lo-fi indie folk pop land.

lyrics

I don't know you
But I want to
Spend some time in your world
Share your secrets
I will keep them
Safe from harm for you girl

But it's getting late and
Somebody's waiting for you
If you walk away now
What is this poor boy to do

Stars so selfish
Grant just one wish
Let her stay for awhile
Softly I sing
Help my song bring
To her face a big smile

But it's getting late and
Somebody's waiting for you
If you walk away now
What is this poor boy to do

Tell me little girl, are you a sinner or a saint? Down on your knees, no hint of restraint
