Smalltown Boy Reprise 2014

In honour of family members, friends and World Pride Festival  in Toronto from June 20 - 29th please listen to this wonderful reprise of Smalltown Boy by Jimmy Somerville.

Here are the lyrics from the song first released to the world by Bronski Beat and Somerville 30 years ago:

Bronski Beat – Small Town Boy Lyrics

You leave in the morning 
With everything you own in a little black case 
Alone on the platform 
The wind and the rain 

On a sad and lonely face 
Mother will never understand 
Why you had to leave 
For the love that you need 

Will never be found at home 
Pushed around and kicked around 
Always a lonely boy 
You were the one 

That they'd talk about around town 
As they put you down 
And as hard as they would try 
They'd hurt to make you cry 

But you'd never cry to them 
Just to your soul 
No you'd never cry to them 
Just to your soul
