Just a Man

I should be listening

…but I’m not

Give her my best they said

but is my best here inside my head?

 

If I could just recall

the wit I planned

The way she’d laugh

she just smiled instead

It sounded better in my head

 

What was it she wants, again?

I’ll give it if I can

But will it be enough

when she finds I’m just a man?

 

(She wants)  A man to make her laugh

A man to make her cry

 – but in a good way

What could I possibly say?

 

Her knight in shining armor

But will this tarnish be OK?

I polished as best I could

but will she notice I’m not all that good?

 

What was it she wants, again?

I’ll give it if I can

But will it be enough

when she finds I’m just a man?

 

(She wants) A man who’s down to Earth

but still can fly (but how high?)

To ground a bird would be a crime

and I’m sure there are no angels left

 

A man who’s a friend

– and a lover

Well how could I be one

and not the other?

…I wonder

 

What was it she wants, again?

I’ll give it if I can

But will it be enough

when she finds I’m just a man?

 

But will it be enough?

 

I’m just a man
