Lauper, Cyndi - Boy Blue Lyrics

You never knew yourself well enough
But she never knew you at all
And when she put you out on your own
It may have stolen your innocence
But not your soul

Tell me where is little boy blue
You'll find him standing always
One step ahead
Fast a little, shy a little, boy blue
Wise blood runs warms and deep
On the street
... Kids walking, just a kid walking

You send a letter with photographs
And I'll tuck them under my dreams
And if we wake up old beyond our years
Not quite as brave as we seem
It's just the pain that never disappears

Tell me where is boy blue
You'll find him standing always one step ahead...

Dance a little, cry a little...

Where are you boy blue
Where are you...

  7. Kameron James

    Great version, the reason its longer than original she was upset about her friend and kept singing part of the song so the band followed suit and played along. Amazing!

  8. D Mc

    I love her so much!

  9. Sergio Padron Arellano

    Real singer, not like today pseudo singers that more show than talent


    RICK DERRINGER ,give it up for Rick on lead guitar.

    While my friend Gregory Natal was in the hospital, dying at the impossibly young age of twenty-seven, he asked that I write a song for him. He wanted me to release it in the spirit of “That’s What Friends Are For.” I thought, “What, like Burt Bacharach? Yikes, that is a tall order.” So I wrote “Boy Blue.” I poured out my heart, and my liver,
    into that song. It was tangled up in so much of my sorrow and so cloaked in my sadness that I don’t know if it was good enough for him. What do you think? RIP Gregory. 💙

  15. Roberto Coin

    Cyndi wrote this song about her friend Gregory Natal, one of her best friends and a gay man who died of AIDS at age 27 in late 1985. He lived life as a homeless teen after being thrown out of his home by his mother after she came in upon his father raping him. She threw out the kid and kept the rapist. His nickname was Boy Blue because the nursery rhyme of Boy Blue was his favorite poem. I don't agree with Cyndi on my opinions of homosexuality, but I have to say this song is catchy, good, and this performance of it in 1987 'live in Paris' was phenomenal.


    He was actually 29 and died on January 1, 1986.

  16. Jesus M. Lira

  30. anthony harris

    Absolutely incredible energy in this video. After all these years this is still one of the best live performances out there. Kudos to Cyndi for pulling together some awesome talent for her band: Rick Derringer (lead guitar), Sue Hadjapoulos (percussion), Sterling Campbell (drums)...

  31. Cristina Rodrigues

  48. mystic smile

    Saw her in the 80s best live performance I've seen. So new. So emotional and so beautiful.💝

  49. Roch Lester

    This little, tiny woman, got talent to spare for those who nowadays
    would lip sync all their way to the top (Justin Bieber, Britney, Ashley
    Simpson, etc.); way to go Cyndi!

  50. Joe Momma

    Memo to today's pop tarts: Cyndi is singing live. No auto-tune. No lip syncing. No sparks. No dancers. Straight up singing!

  51. Thea Knight

    She was waayyy ahead of us, wasn't she?

  52. Pablo Vivanco

  61. lambent ort

    One of my favourite songs - such a haunting song esp when she goes into her primal screams in the outro... it's even more gutwrenching when she sings it live

  62. dead


  63. André Soares

    Cyndi Lauper 😍 a melhor......

  64. Gerson Shiroma

    E foi merecidamente homenageada agora, no Ding Dong do faustão...sem dúvida, a maior cantora de sua geração!

  65. hd886

    después de haber visto este vídeo....¿alguien tiene duda que Cyndi fue mejor cantante que Madonna? y ¿también mejor cantante que cualquiera de las estrellas pop de ahora ya sea Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Taylor swift, Rihanna, Beyonce?, ¿alguien tiene duda?

    Efren Jaime

    Ninguna duda. Cyndi lauper es cantante de las grandes ligas. La otra es una taibolera de las grandes ligas

  66. golf-freq

    Note to all those on the fence about, perhaps, maybe being a fan of Cyndi Lauper: Just fucking do it! K, thanx.

  67. Cindy Russo

    Cindy Lauper, lembranças de minha juventude. Amo.

  68. Michael Dornelas

    I love this song 🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷💕💕💕

  69. BlunderCity

    One word is enough: Amazing!

  70. fabrice4705

    Here is a woman that stood up to the suits (not just men but women too), took control of her career, sacrificed sales and popularity to stay true to her work and vision ... and is rarely recognized for her work or for the fact that she is still going strong despite any support from Radio or a strong commercial outlet .. SHE deserves all the life time achievement awards that the Music Industry has to offer - She is Rock n' Roll Royalty and She is Pop Culture ... She is, Cyndi Lauper.

    Paul Purcell

    YES! truth :-)

    Enal Barker

    A true artist

    Hyde Park Director

    Love this!

    Hero360 Project

    Fabrice4705, your sentiments are spot on. ;) I'm pleased to reassure you the giants in the industry do now recognise Cyndi as "American Royalty". I've been fortunate to meet her twice, (2013 & 2018) she's totally awesome and beyond words of compassion. This performance is epic! ;)

  71. Jim Jones

    This brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it,because I know it hurts.

  72. Hadryanno Matrix Reload

    Eterna Diva eterna Cyndi

  83. Jose Roberto

    Sou fansaço! eternas canções...

  84. david miller

    happy pride!

  85. Walter Pewen

    Does anyone even know what this song is about? It was written when AIDS was ravaging the country with no treatment in sight. It may sound cool, but it's about the loss of a friend. Plenty of us lost many. Read some history once and a while, whether you like it or not....

  86. Eddie Gonzalez

    the best 'n all the times no absulute comparations

  87. Henrique Ignacio

    Salve Cyndi.

  88. Charles Drake

    I forgot how great this was.

  89. Paul Sheppard


  90. E agora? É Khlóe?


  91. 政彦山本


  92. AnthonyYouTubeFan

    Why didn't I hear this song much in 1987?! It's one of her best songs and vocal performances. Criminal that this didn't make it to the Top 10.

  93. ajaxfilms

    The best.

  94. Edinaldo Gomes Da Silva

    diva pop
