​Just A Man

This song is by Larry Santos and appears on the album Just a Man (1969).

I know you wish that I could be,
More than any other man you've ever known,
The way you look at me sometimes makes me feel,
What I'm really worth, I've never shown.

But I think there's so much more to life than simply winning things,
So you can stand a step above your friends,
'Cause all the things a hundred dollars of work a week might buy,
Will only whet your appetite, not satisfy you.

And I'm just a man, born of a woman like you,
I'm just a man who can't be blind to the things I find in this world.

So let me try to find a way that I can be,
Worth the time and space I fill,
Though I lose the common race while chasing dreams,
I need to have you, standing by me still.

For I'm just a man, born of a woman like you,
I'm just a man who needs your love,
And to know that you're proud of the kind of man I am inside me.

I'm just a man who needs your love,
And to know that you're proud of the kind of man I am inside me.
'Cause all I am is a man, born of a woman like you.

All I am is a man, born of a woman like you.
(Repeat to fade).
