JUST A BOY 
Paul Stanley, Bob Ezrin 

[Rhy. Fig 1]
[Rhy. Fig 2]
Who steers the ship through the stormy sea 
If hope is lost then so are we 
While some eyes search for one to guide us 
Some are staring at me 
[Rhy. Fig 3a w/ Rhy. Fig 3b]

[Rhy. Fig 4a w/ Rhy. Fig 4b]
But I'm no hero 
Though I wish I could be 

[Rhy. Fig 5a w/ Rhy. Fig 5b]
For I am just a boy, 
Too young to be sailing 
[Rhy. Fig 6a w/ End 1 and Rhy. Fig 6b w/ End 1]
I am just a boy, 
And my future is unveiling 
And I'm so frightened of failing

[Solo over Rhy. Fig 2]
While some eyes search for one to guide us 
Some are staring at me 
[Rhy. Fig 3a w/ Rhy. Fig 3b]

[Rhy. Fig 4a w/ Rhy. Fig 4b]
But I'm no hero 
Though I wish I could be 

[Rhy. Fig 5a w/ Rhy. Fig 5b]
For I am just a boy, 
Too young to be sailing 
[Rhy. Fig 6a w/ End 2 and Rhy. Fig 6b w/ End 2]
I am just a boy, 
And my future is unveiling 
And I'm so frightened of failing
