I've got my reasons for holding back

Can't give my trust too fast

I've pulled myself out of the wreck
Too many times


To think that words can last



You need someone to help you


When you're down

Pick you like a pearl from the sand
Somebody who is devoted to you

Right beside you when you take a stand
I could never be that man




You have a special shrine in your room


Pictures of lovers on the wall
I loved to lie there and look into their eyes

So confident before you let them fall


Will you tell me please



How you get them off their knees
Twirling round you fast as they can
How did you know

That it worries me so


Not the ones who fall the ones who stand
Oh I could never be that man


I still remember that time in my life



When I was sinking so low
You stayed with me all through the night


Sang me some songs you know



Now as time goes on

I wonder what went wrong

Didn't I fit into your little plan

Couldn't I be the one
You lay your troubles on

Walk you to the edge and hold your hand


Pick you like a pearl from the sand

I'll open every doorway that I can
Oh I could never be that man
