09. Boys (Lesson One)

The Long Fall Back To Earth
by Jars of Clay



 

Lesson one - do not hide
Lesson two - there are right ways to fight
And if you have questions
We can talk through the night

So you know who you are
And you know what you want
Iíve been where youíre going
And itís not that far
Itís too far to walk
But you donít have to run
Youíll get there in time

Lesson three - youíre not alone
Not since I saw you start breathing on your own
You can leave, you can run, this will still be your home

So you know who you are
And you know what you want
Iíve been where youíre going
And itís not that far
Itís too far to walk
But you donít have to run
Youíll get there in time
Get there in time

In time, to wonder where the days have gone
In time, to be old enough to wish that you were young
When good things are unraveling, bad things come undone
You weather love and lose your innocence

There will be liars and thieves who take from you
Not to undermine the consequence
But you are not what you do
And when you need it most
I have a hundred reasons why I love you

If you weather love and lose your innocence
Just remember - lesson one

Behind the Song:
DAN HASELTINE: ďWith ĎBoysí, I wanted to create the idea of a safe place. Most kids reach a point in their development where life surprises them with hard questions they think are too big to ask. And I wanted to express the idea that there really are safe places from which you can ask those questions -- the idea that you donít have to hide. Our kids are growing up so fast -- and theyíre trying to grow up even faster than they actually are -- we all did when we were kids. But now the four of us are at a place where weíre doing all we can to push against that. To say to our kids, ĎKeep an open heart. Take your time. Youíll get there.íĒ
