Darlin'

This song is by Mike Pinto and appears on the album Mike Pinto (2007).

Oh, lately I'm a man on the move
I'm a young soul with something to prove
At that age now, to find something real
Using planes, trains, and automobiles
It's a long way 'cross the U.S.A.
But this day is mine for the takin'
Breakin' the laws, 'cause they're all so obsurd
I smoke the best herb, the more I travel Westwards
All the folks, they all got different handshakes
On my way through landslides and earthquakes
Funny how you learn the different rules of a new place
Funny how your life can fit inside of a suitcase
All I need is just a round of applaus
To remind me why I left my life behind me
I'm makin' money for the rhymes I write
And now the hunnies wanna' hold me tight

But darlin', can't you see, can't you see?
I will never be the man, never be the man you dreamed of (oh, no, no, no)
Darlin', can't you see, can't you see?
I will never be the man, never be the man you dreamed of

She's looking for a knight in shining armor
A charmer, to guard from those who'd harm her
I ain't the one who's gonna' deal with the hassle
Ain't the type of knight who spends his time in the castle
Call me selfhish, ha, you may be true
But I been lookin' out for something new
'Cause the same bar, in the same part of town
Drinkin' over and over again could bring a man down (oh)
I've been traveling from state to state
Still looking for people who can relate
In hot pursuit of a girl to ease my tension
Pretty little something cravin' more than attention

Darlin', can't you see, can't you see?
I will never be the man, never be the man you dreamed of (oh, no, no, no)
Darlin', can't you see, can't you see?
I will never be the man, never be the man you dreamed of

Nothing's ever gonna' stand in my way
The highway is all that provides me
With a thought that there is something waiting
Strong enough to keep a heart from aching
If Love is in the air that I ain't breathing
Life is short, and I'm in search of meanin'
The race is won, and it is slow and steady
Enough already, Hell I'm far from good and ready
We could get together for a one night stand
'Cause girl I can love you better than any man could
One thing for sure, you know I gotta' leave town
Well, we could mess around, we could mess around

Darlin', can't you see, can't you see?
I will never be the man, never be the man you dreamed of (oh, no, no, no)
Darlin', can't you see, can't you see?
I will never be the man, never be the man you dreamed of (oh, no, no)
