About the song
IAC Golden Kayak award for best song in its category - March 2007.

It can be hard writing songs. You search around for subject matter, new chord progressions, quirky angles, a new take on an old theme. Then something happens to turn your world upside down and there you have it: raw subject matter and a new angle from which to view it; an epiphany, a moment of clear vision, an honesty that leaves all the clever chords and language redundant. I think that's just happened to me and this either poured out of me or poured through me. I've kept it bare and simple, maybe just as truth should be kept.
Lyrics
Verse1
Sometimes our plans turn to dust,
And sometimes love runs dry;
But my love for you will stay strong and true and never die.

People change their minds,
And hearts can falter too
But in my heart and mind you'll always find my little boy,
And I'll love you.

Chorus
Oh my precious boy, my perfect boy,
Where do I begin? How do I explain?
I won't be here with you every day
As you always thought I would be.

Verse2
There's wonder in your eyes
And wisdom beyond your years;
So smile for me, be brave, and let's wipe away the tears
We're crying.

No son, daddy cannot fix everything,
I only wish it were true;
I'd put all this right, kiss goodnight,
And I'd still be here for you
In the morning.

Chorus
Oh my precious boy, my perfect boy
Where do I begin? How do I explain?
I won't be here with you every day
As I always thought I would be.

Middle 8
I know I've let you down,
But if you knew what I've been through...
You won't hear angry voices,
The choices that I've made
I made for you.

Chorus
Oh my precious boy, my perfect boy
Where do I begin? How do I explain?
I won't be here with you every day
As we always thought I would be,

My precious, my lovely, my perfect boy.
