Giving It All Away
I paid all my dues
So I picked up my shoes
I got up and walked away
Oh, I was just a boy
I didn't know how to play

Worked hard and failed
Now all I can say is
I threw it all away
Oh, I was just a boy
Giving it all away

Sail away, sail away
Ooh, but I know better now, I know better now
Giving it all away

Ooh, well, I know better now, I know better now
Giving it all away

Went out in the world
Too much for my nerves
Only myself to blame
Oh, I was just a boy
Nobody else to blame

I've done all I can
Now it's out of my hands
Stand on my head and say
Oh, I was just a boy
Giving it all away

Sail away, sail away
Ooh, well, I know better now, I know better now
Giving it all away

Ooh, well, I know better now, I know better now
Given it all away

Ooh, yeah, I know better now, I know better now
Given it all away

Ooh, yeah, I know better now, I know better now
Given it all away

Just a boy, giving it all away
Just a boy, giving it all away
I was just a boy, giving it all away
Just a boy
