my lyricsbox
When I was smaller wishing I was taller
I woke up one morning and my mama was gone
I tried to talk to my father he told me not to bother him
he said boy being a man means being strong
Now leave me alone

So you say you wanna see behind the curtain
you wanna know why I don't show it when I'm hurting
It never did me any good before so long ago I locked that door
But please don't think I'm pushing you away
It's just the man I am today

Before I was loved by you I didn't know how to
Love was nothing to me but a four letter word
But I'm learning being strong don't mean being alone
So just hold on girl and soon you're gonna know
The man I'll be tomorrow

So you say you wanna see behind the curtain
you wanna know why I don't show it when I'm hurting
It never did me any good before so long ago I locked that door
But please don't think I'm pushing you away
It's just the man I am today

It never did me any good before so long ago I locked that door
But please don't think I'm pushing you away
It's just the man I am today

The man I am today
This song is from the album "Honesty".
