Song Description

He and his partner have split, he's taking care of the kids during the week, and working at the same time. His buddies try to help out when they can. His dreams as a boy were to become an astronaut but now he's being a man in other ways

Story Behind the Song

Men single parents get a bad deal in our modern society, this song attemps to show that they should be given more respect and should be cuta bit morer slack

Lyrics

Verse 1
He drops his kids at school, and they wave goodbye
He waves too, with his best smile
All the while doing his best to hide, the tear in his eye
Their mom calls, n' said she'll be dropping by
To pick them up on Friday night
As he asks himself one more time
How It got to this

Chorus
Its not what he planned, he was just like all the other boys,
Running around with his broken toys, making dreams about an astronaut
But he never walked away, when it got too tough
No, that's not his style, y' know he don't give up
Now he's doing the best that he can
Being a man

Late for work, an' his boss's got a way
Of telling him how he'll never make the grade
So he apologised, kept his thoughts to himself
There was a time it would've ended somewhere else
He work through lunch so he can leave at 4
His buddies cover him somehow
There's a rumour going round, their laying off again
He can't think about that right now

Its not what he planned, he was just like all the other boys,
Running around with his broken toys, making dreams about an astronaut
But he never walked away, when it got too tough
No that's not his style, y' know he won't give up
Now he's doing the best that he can
Being a man

Bridge
How would he know what was coming
What was waiting down the line
He followed his heart like everyone else
The promises seemed genuine
Hiding his pain like any man
Staring at the moon above
Giving thanks for the stars in his life, the stars he loves

Its not what he planned, he was just like all the other boys,
Running around with his broken toys, making dreams about an astronaut
But he never walked away, when it got too tough
No, that's not his style, he don't give up
Now he's doing the best that he can
Being a man
