lyrics

I wished on a lot of stars, bring me a love.
But I don't think I made myself clear enough.
What to do with what I got? Oh, I trembled and cried.
Everyone says that I don't have a choice.
Even I have that tone in my voice.
You've told your first and last lie; here's what I'm going to do.

I'll be a man. I will never call you back. I will run away from you
because I'm scared.
I'll be a man. I will shut my ears to you.
I will do the things you do before you do 'em.

Much further back was someone I forgot
Like a bus that on purpose just misses a stop
So sweet and right I decided that something was wrong
Then on a day that was misty with rain,
I called from a desk that was covered with pain
You didn't get the chance, but why shouldn't you be the same?

I was a man. I just never called you back. I just run away from you
'cause I was scared.
I was a man. I just shut my ears to you.
Thought I'd do the things you do before you do 'em.

They're always cursed for turning around
They say they're turning on us
At least they're on some solid ground.
They pick a sidewalk and drive on down.

So I'll be a man. I will never call you back. I will run away from you
because I'm scared.
I'll be a man. I will shut my ears to you.
I will do the things you do before you do 'em.

I'll be a man. I will never call you back.
I will run away from love because I'm scared.
