Every night I kiss somebody new I make believe it's you
I got my foolish pride still loving you
Every night seems like a thousand years
I just can't lose these young boy blues

Wanna cry when I hear your name
If I cry I feel ashamed
I let my pride be my guide
Keep these tears inside
Each night seems like a thousand years
Since I got these young boy blues

Oh, don't know what to say
Don't know what to do
I'm so lost and lonely since I lost you

Young boy blues

Don't know what to say
Don't know what to do
I'm so lost and lonely since I lost you

Every night I kiss somebody new I make believe it's you
I can't kid my aching heart
My heart knows we're still apart
Every night seems like a thousand years
I just can't lose these young boy blues

And I say [?]
Every night seems like a thousand years
Oh, I just can't lose these young boy blues
