lyrics

When I was a boy I dreamt
I’d be an astronaut or President
Tie a blanket ‘round my neck and then pretend
I could fly up to the moon and back again

I’ve been a seeker, I’ve been a scientist
None of that prepared me for this
There’s no secret, ain’t no master plan
I only wanna be your man

Oh lover, there were others before you
Each one tried to teach me something new
But it never took and hearts broke every time
Truth be told usually just mine

Some men wanna make their mark on all mankind
Me I only wanna change your mind
I can see you have your doubts but I know I can
I only wanna be your man
I only wanna be your man

If you’re the ocean just let me be the wave
If you’re the gambler let me your ace of spades
If you’re the hourglass, make me a grain of sand
Falling head over heels again and again
I only wanna be your man
I only wanna be your man
