What It Means
I always hoped it wouldn't happen but you see all that I did was run away with me, yeah. All that I knew was a lie and so I move into the world where I must live. All of my love never dying always new helps me to face what it means to be a man, what it means to me.
I was alone for so long I couldn't bear. Woman was good when woman was there. It took so long just to find a willing pair. Trampled by fear, that's my losing way. It's never too late to recover from the blow. That's how I face what it means to be a man, what it means to me.
I won't deny, I won't even try. I'd rather keep in touch with what's mine. That's how I win, that's how I begin. That's how I know what it means to be a man, what it means to me.
