"The Man I Use to Be"
Margie & Art Corey Copyright 2017 (C)

I'm Losing my reality, I'm Losing my personality
I'm losing, losing.........
What's left of me.........

1st Verse
I'm not the man I used to be, what ever happened to me
I'm in a life boat set out to sea,
And who can ever set me free?

2nd Verse
I try to please everyone, while losing sight of what I've become
It's time to turn this boat around
And plant my feet firmly on the ground

Is it just only me, in every face that I see
Is anyone....who they really want to be
Yes, One door opens, and we close three!

3rd Verse
I've surely given more than I owe
Only yes's and no more no's
From now on, Ooooo anything goes

4th Verse
I need to take fate by the hand
I need to make a lasting stand
And become the Man I used to be

Chorus Repeat

interesting lyrics cool shadings and nice bit of sax work.

this really cool.
has elements of Peter Gabriel...which I love...
sweet harmonies...
