The Man

THE MAN - Written by Carroll Bryant 


As the sun goes slowly down
He tries to understand
Living in memories
With a bottle in his hand

Did he just grow up too fast?
Was the price too much to pay?
He keeps on living in his past 
As he lives from day to day

Has he lost all control?
Does his heart now call his hand?
Now that he has let her know
Will she ever love the man

Doesn't anybody even try to even understand?
What do people really say when they talk about the man?

As he thinks about the girls
He once knew at one time
With lots of thought behind it
He is sure in his mind

That he really fell in love
With the girl of all girls
But she just don't believe it
But the man is really sure

The man isn't crazy
The man ain't insane 
The man is just tired 
Of playing the same old games

So as the sun goes slowly down
He takes another drink
Trying to recollect 
What he's made himself believe

That she really cares
For him as he does for her
Knowing he's just dreaming
Knowing it's absurd 

The man isn't crazy
The man ain't insane 
The man is just tired 
Of playing the same old games

Doesn't anybody even try to even understand?
What do people really see when they think about the man?

Doesn't anybody even try to even understand?
What do people really say when they talk about the man?
