​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 [may be wrong]
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)
