The Man In Me

Lyrics by Hal Pollock
Music and vocals by Tony Bodanza

Love used to be just a game and I played it
Like building a castle on sand and I made it
I never thought that my feelings could run so deep


Out of control, spinning faster and faster
Just like a child, on the road to disaster
I thought that love was a toy no one could ever keep

 

But the man in me knows now to hold you, so tenderly
You taught me how to love you
You brought out the man in me


Yes the man in me still burns with passion but now I see
You showed me a fire that doesn’t burn up you and me
Just like a fool I tried to make you my plaything
Actin’ real cool with my boys was the main thing
I didn’t care if I hurt you or I hurt me
I didn’t think about you or tomorrow
I brought you nothing but heartache and sorrow
You were my toy and I was your boy tragedy


But the man in me knows now to hold you, so tenderly
You taught me how to love you
You brought out the man in me
