I Want To Be Your Man

Written by Ren Michael

If I was a river captain
I’d sail beneath an endless sky
And if I was a master painter
The canvas might stay dry
And if I was some famed actor
Every role would be a lie
And inside I feel a fire
And I’ve no place to hide

I never claimed to be a wise man
Feel like I’ve always been the fool
I ever claimed to be a rich man
Though I’ve followed every rule
And when the night grows cold and quiet
I search long for my sign
Soon that sun will come a-risin’
Darlin’ I ain’t got much time

I’m a love-lorn sworn crusader, I’m trying to understand
And I want to be, I want to be your man
On this lonesome avenue, I know my hour might strike soon
And I want to dance, I just want to dance with you

I will not be a beggar, no
I am my father’s son
Though you know a man grows tired
From a life long on the run
No I don’t believe in destiny
I know fate remains disguised
But for you, I’d give my all, my dear
I’d wait for you if you ever fell behind.

I’m a love-lorn sworn crusader, I’m trying to understand
And I want to be, I want to be your man
On this lonesome avenue, I know my hour might strike soon
And I want to dance, I just want to dance with you

And the sweet soul of your eyes, I know my love can never die
Though I’m a ghost in your light, let me hold you close tonight
On this lonesome avenue, I know my hour might strike soon
And I want to dance, I just want to dance with you
