There was a boy who was a man, who lived a dream, who became a star

Who looked into the mirror glass and saw the world as what could be, instead of the cancer that it was

 

Humanity gripped him by the throat and wormed into his open heart

Humanity nursed upon his love and spread him out until he burst

 

There was a man who was a boy, who became a dream, who was born a star

Who rocked the world into the dawn and never stopped till the curtain dropped

 

Crowned a king, he ruled the air and showered sparks for future flames

Made a legend, he etched himself, his name and voice, in the hearts of all

 

There was a boy who was a man, who is still a dream, who was a star

Who fell and left a broken mold forever preserved by history’s book

 

There was a man who was a boy; there was a boy who was a man

Who lived a dream, and died a king, within a sea of shining stars
