music & lyrics by Roger Glover

oh handsome boy, you had your life
long enough to leave your mark
here in the light of a brand new day
shadows linger in the dark
though the moon won't disappear
you're not around to see it shine
your sweet name is still as dear
as the first day that you were mine

oh handsome boy, would you believe
how many tears there are to fall
you'd never know how deep the love
until there's no chance left at all
you were young and you were free
I knew I had to let you roam
now you'll stay right here with me
in this place that we call our home

oh handsome boy, though you are gone
at least I know you'll never stray
your tender love will make me smile
like you never went away
and at night I close my eyes
I feel you're not so very far
and when the sun begins to rise
you will still be here in my heart
