Lyrics

Here I am, Just a man
But father Brown says it's a man's world
Here I stand, cap in hand
Standing tall, even though I feel so small
I'm just a man, after all

And I need a love
To stand by me
Not burn me down, when I hold my ground

I need a love
To set me free
To keep me high, while I learn to fly

Just a man, feeling second-hand
I used to be a man of the world
Shifting sands, I don't understand
I try to play my part, with an empty heart
Can't you see my world is falling apart

I need a love, to stand by me
I need a love, to set me free

I need a love, to stand by me
I need a love, to set me free

Just a boy, Just a girl
Wondering what the hell is wrong with the world
Just a boy, asking a girl
So, do you want to be my world

Do you need a love to stand by you
Do you need a love to always be true
Do you need a love, for anything
Do you need a love to help you sing

*Sing*

I need a love, to stand by me
Not burn me down when I stand my ground
I need a love to set me free
To keep me high while I learn to fly

Cool song. Very retrospective in sound. I like the lyrics and the mood.

Very beautiful song, an atmospheric arrangement.
