Quotes about boyhood

Byron

Canto the Fourth

I
Nothing so difficult as a beginning
In poesy, unless perhaps the end;
For oftentimes when Pegasus seems winning
The race, he sprains a wing, and down we tend,
Like Lucifer when hurl'd from heaven for sinning;
Our sin the same, and hard as his to mend,
Being pride, which leads the mind to soar too far,
Till our own weakness shows us what we are.

II
But Time, which brings all beings to their level,
And sharp Adversity, will teach at last
Man, -- and, as we would hope, -- perhaps the devil,
That neither of their intellects are vast:
While youth's hot wishes in our red veins revel,
We know not this -- the blood flows on too fast;
But as the torrent widens towards the ocean,
We ponder deeply on each past emotion.

Boyhood, like measles, is one of those complaints which a man should catch young and have done with, for when it comes in middle life it is apt to be serious.

The story of my boyhood and that of my brothers is important only because it could happen in any American family. It did, and will again.

Arms Of Mary

The lights shine down the valley
The wind blows up the alley
Oh how I wish I were lying in the
Arms of Mary

She took the pains of boyhood
And turned them into feel good
Oh hw I wish I were lying in the
Arms of Mary

Mary was the girl who taught me all I had
To know--she put me right on my first mistake
Summer wasn't gone when I'd learned all she had
To show--she really gave all a boy could take

So now when I feel lonely
Still looking for the one and only
That's when I wish I were lying in the
Arms of Mary

The Radio Saved My Life Tonight

I've got something on my mind
I'm just a little bit depressed
I tried to blame it on the rain
But it was in my heart I guess
I'm feeling like a stranger
When I drove through my hometown
Past the sign that Home of a Boyhood Place thats long gone now
I realized aint nuthin what it used to be
Until I heard a song that takes me to my memories
The radio saved my life tonight
An old song that the DJ played made me feel alright
I made it home by my dashboard light
The radio saved my life tonight
Just this side of morning
Just this side of dawn
I walked so soft into my bedroom saw my wife sleeping alone
She whispered Baby are you ok? Have you been gone for long?
I just kicked off my jeans and held her close, I held her all night long
I tried to sleep but in my mind I heard that song
The radio saved my life tonight

Old Days

Old days
Good times I remember
Fun days
Filled with simple pleasures
Drive-in movies
Comic books and blue jeans
Howdy doody
Baseball cards and birthdays
Take me back
To a world gone away
Memories
Seem like yesterday
Old days
Good times I remember
Gold days
Days Ill always treasure
Funny faces
Full of love and laughter
Funny places
Summer nights and streetcars

Picture Of Innocence

I hear they're trying to make us all the same
It's mind control by any other name
Who's gonna pay the price
For this foolish paradise
Oh?omma don't take that train
I hear it said we're headed too far south
Chinese whispers go by word of mouth
Rules for every size and shape
The nag has gone, shut the gate
Once you're in you're never getting out
I'm so misunderstood
There goes my manlihood
She's in my face again
With that picture of innocence
No drinks, No smokes
No dicking around
No dirty jokes
Straight lace, straight face
The old straight jacket
We got no hope

Waterwheel

I hear you call me, waterwheel
Spin round, round in a circle
Gracing my child dreams on fantasy hill
Spin round, round in a circle
Flash! paddles sending a spray to the air
Lately, my thoughts are still-
With you there as you spin round,
Round in a boyhood daydream
Spin round
My thoughts are drifting to a quieter time
(spin round, round in a circle)
Green covered slippery water-rocks I used to climb
(spin round, round in a circle)
Father and child walking down by the canyon
Lately, my thoughts are still-
With them there as they spin round,
Round in a boyhood daydream
Spin round

Arms Of Mary

(Ian and George Sutherland)
The light shines down the valley
The wind blows up the alley
Oh how I wish I was lyin' in the arms of Mary
She took the pains of boyhood
And turned them into feel good
Oh how I wish I was lyin' in the arms of Mary
CHORUS
Mary was the girl who taught me all I had to know
She out me right on my first mistake
Summer wasn't gone
when I learned all she had to give
She really gave all a boy could take
So now when I get lonely
Still lookin for my one and only
That's when I wish was lyin' in
The Arms of Mary
(repeat chorus)

Hot Water

Tell - me something
Why do I always find it hard just to get along
Try my best - for nothing
Every little thing I do is wrong
Feel it in my brain
Driving me insane
Round and round
The same old tune
Daddys on the phone
You know youre not alone
Turn that down
And clean up your room.
Sons and daughters
(dont fall in)
In hot water
Sons and daughters
(they dont do)
What they oughta
Tell (tell) you something
Music is the key to set me free
