lyrics

~~~~Words and Music by Michael McManus~~~~

I'd kill myself a thousand times to be her man/
could anyone at all please try to understand,
you set my world on fire when you made up your mind, and I'll only stand a chance now if god is on my side,
the truth my dear is not only not what you planned,
so grab what's in the air and believe in circumstance,
I bolted my eyes shut before I learned your name,
the shadow of her face is the ghost that haunts my days

Babe, I've loved my life thus far,
but don't you say that's all,
I know my head ain't wrong,
so tell me what is it you're thinking?
I've burned the midnight oil,
I'm seeing stars oh boy,
how could you look me in the eye, say it was just another night?

I'd kill myself a thousand times to be her man/
could anyone at all please try to understand,
you set my world on fire when you made up your mind, and i'll only stand a chance now if god is on my side,
the truth my dear is not only not what you planned,
so grab what's in the air and believe in circumstance,
I bolted my eyes shut before I learned your name,
the shadow of her face is the ghost that haunts my days

Babe,
I know that life moves fast,
and old folks dream of the past,
to surrender it all up to god,
is such a heavy notion.
So while you sit at home and wait,
dreaming of personal fate,
I'll be sitting in my home too,
so rob me of my future.

Diners and Beds and Coffee and Sex and then your life's over;
I've lived in a cage for a while,
I'm ready to die, I, I'm ready to die.
I'd kill myself a thousand times to be her man/
could anyone at all please try to understand?
You set my world on fire when you made up your mind, and I'll only stand a chance now if god is on my side,
the truth my dear is not only not what you planned,
so grab what's in the air and believe in circumstance,
I bolted my eyes shut before I learned your name,
the shadow of her face is the ghost that haunts my days
