​Counterfeit Man

This song is by Charlie Landsborough and appears on the album Smile (2003) and on the compilation album A Portrait Of Charlie Landsborough: The Ultimate Collection (2005).

I can't afford a night on the town
Don't have no money to burn
Life in the shadows is getting me down
Seems everywhere that I turn
I meet a brick wall
I'm gonna knock'em down some day
I'm gonna walk tall
Get off the wrong road
I'm gonna find myself a better way
That's for sure
Ain't gonna be a counterfeit man no more

I've seen them castin glances at me
With disapprovin eyes
If they keep looking
Their gonna see
Out of the ashes I'll rise

There'll be a new dawn
I'll but an end to all their mockin
'Cause I'll be reborn
I'll make a new life
Won't ever hear those hard times knockin'
At my door
Ain't gonna be a counterfeit man no more

I'm gonna be the man that god made
Ain't gonna settle for less
From now on you'll get the real thing
I'm being me
I'm gonna be a success
Oh Yes

I'm thinking different
I'm stepping out
Find me a new way to walk
I won't surrender to feelings or doubts
People will hear when I talk

Ain't gonna stay down
Ain't gonna let this old world kick me
Although I'm way down
I'm gonna aim high
Maybe lady luck will pick off the floor
Ain't gonna be a counterfeit man no more

I'm gonna be the man that god made
Ain't gonna settle for less
From now on you'll get the real thing
I'm being me
I'm gonna be a success
Yeah yeah

I can't afford a night on the town
Don't have no money to burn
Life in the shadows is getting me down
Seems everywhere that I turn
I meet a brick wall
I'm gonna knock'em down some day
I'm gonna walk tall
Get off the wrong road
Find myself a better way
That's for sure
Ain't gonna be a counterfeit man no more
Ain't gonna be a counterfeit man no more
Ain't gonna be a counterfeit man no more
