Your Man

 

I ain’t trying to hold you back.

I know I wear you down,

When I treat you like your mine and

I know you’re your own.

*

Surely,

love don’t possess,

but I want to be your man.

I want to be your man

-

I know sometimes you look for me and

I’ve disappeared.

Sometimes I don’t know where to go

When my head gets weird.

But I see you in your roots, 

and I see you in your bone.

When I see you seein’ me

I feel at home.

*

Surely love don’t possess,

but I want to be your man.

Oh, I want to be your man.

-

Means are a funny thing and

there’s not a single thing you can’t buy.

Any drink when you’re low and

any airplane to make you feel high.

-

But I see you in your roots

and I see you in your bone.

When I see you seein’ me

I feel at home.

*

Surely love don’t possess,

but I want to be your man.

Oh, I want to be your man.
