What's a Boy to Do - Lyrics

What's a boy to do?
I got nothing left
All I had was you
Rushing through my veins
What's a boy to say, when they never touched?
All I had was love
But it seems love's not enough

Oh, I had something, girl
But it's all over now
We once we had the way
Well, I got nothing now

For the first time
In a long time
I can see the light
Shining down on me tonight

How's a boy to know, when it's time to leave?
Where's a boy to go?
What should I believe?

I found something, girl
But it's all over now
We once had the world
Well, I got nothing, I got nothing now!

For the first time
In a long time
I can see the light
Shining down on me tonight.

I'm sorry, but I don't want to be an emperor. That's not my business.
I don't want to rule or conquer anyone.
I should like to help everyone - if possible - Jew,
Gentile - black man - white. We all want to help one another.
Human beings are like that.
We want to live by each other's happiness - not by each other's
misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another.
In this world there is room for everyone.
And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone.
The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way
Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate,
has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed.
We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in.
Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want.
Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind.
We think too much and feel too little.
More than machinery we need humanity.
More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.
Without these qualities,
life will be violent and all will be lost. All will be lost.
