  1. Better Man

Lyrics

‘Swear I’ll try to be a peaceful man
I’ll do my best to be a different man
Sure I’ll start to be a righteous man
I just want to be a better man

Standing proud in front of the mirror
Sure of my strength, no possible error
I did the job and I did it well
But you come to me and ring the bell
One by one you point out my mistakes
“It’s the past” you say, “what difference it makes?”
I’ve raised you as I could, but now I realize
That I told myself too many lies

‘Swear I’ll try to be a peaceful man
I’ll do my best to be a different man
Sure I’ll start to be a righteous man
I just want to be a better man

I don't question your love she said
But you go about it all the wrong way
I really don’t need diamonds or gold
To make me feel like I'm the queen of your world
Hear me, see me, pay attention to me,
Don’t think of me as your own trophy
Her voice was soft but her words were not
She knocked me down with just one shot

Do I really mess everything up?
Am I such a deaf and selfish man?

Staying humble in front of my friends
Your trust is a gift I hold in my hands
I have often failed when you needed me
Blinded by myself I could not see
All you wanted was me on your side
You were calling to me, I was out of sight
But surely I’m a lucky guy
‘Cause it seems you'll stand for the fool I am!
