The Man

special thanks to J. Faeth

Listen

 

He is a soul survivor, a warrior of love

He is a reservoir of strength and warmth

He will protect you from the storm

 

He is his daddy’s son, lips taste like sugarcane

eyes like the Carolina shores, a heart as wild as a hurricane

 

His tears fall down like the southern rain

and from the first day he was born,

he’s had to live his life in vain

In time he will become his own

when trying to understand this world

and when all is said and done,

there will stand the man

 

He knows too well the sorrow of past unanswered dreams

He whispers in the wind before he begins to confess his sins

and he questions what they mean

 

He is his daddy’s son, lips taste like sugarcane

eyes like the Carolina shores, a heart as wild as a hurricane
