Boys in The Street

Calum Scott

When I was younger
My daddy told me I would never
Never amount to nothing special
He'd come at me from every angle

He'd say
You're the last thing I wanted
The last thing I need
How am I going to answer when my friends tell me

My son
Was kissing boys in the street
My son
Was kissing boys in the street?

He tried to change me
Say I'm embarrassing my country
How could I do this to my family?
Do I wanna grow up being lonely?

He'd say
We have worked for our money
We've put you in school
Is this how you repay us?
Do you think this is cool?

My son
Stop kissing boys in the street
My son
Stop kissing boys in the street

Now that I'm older
My daddy's heart's a little warmer
But he still won't hug me like my brother
And he still won't kiss me like my mother

He'd say
You are part of this family
I made you myself
But the way that you act
Isn't good for your health

My son
Stop kissing boys in the street
My son
Stop kissing boys in the street

My daddy's dying
But he's finally realized I'm not lying
We sit in silence, but we're smiling
Because for once, we are not fighting

He'd say
There was no way of knowing
'Cause all I was taught
Is men only love women
But now I'm not sure

My son
Keep kissing boys in the street
My son
Keep kissing boys in the street

And when I'm gone
Keep kissing boys in the street
