Boy from Nowhere
The nights grow cold My search for gold is leading nowhere Whichever lonely road I take It seems to go nowhere It's a fight to survive just until tomorrow How can I display what I know I'm worthy of When they turn me away The doors are closed to such as I A boy from nowhere But not to those who merely buy the right to go where They'll be met with respect, not humiliation A man's place on earth I have come to realize is decided by birth So what's the future No matter where I go I will still belong in Andalusia Where we don't know where The next penny's coming from Something's wrong I'm bound to Spain, I won't remain A boy from nowhere There has to be a place for me And I must go there I don't fantasize, unlike a million others Who must bow and scrape For my one means of escape Is to flourish a cape I'll fight all odds And fight the Gods if they oppose me I have to win, I won't give in No one who knows me would expect me to fail For the want of trying Not a man alive Had to beg or steal or fight More than me to survive So what's the future No matter where I go I will still belong in Andalusia Where good, honest men grow weak And the rich grow strong Something's wrong Another dawn, another boy A boy from nowhere My destiny will guarantee And I must go there It's a fight to survive just until tomorrow One more mouth to feed And the way things are 'round here That's the last thing they need
