Well, I don’t have a red jacket like James Dean
And I’m not as handsome as Springsteen
But maybe I could offer more than a schoolgirl crush
That still hangs on your wall

You won’t find me in this month’s Rolling Stone
You can’t hear my voice at the touch of your hand
But I could do things your records can’t do
If I was your music man

Well I could be with you in silence
And I could hold onto you when it storms
I’ll dance with you and when the music stops
I’ll still be there to keep you warm

I don’t have a million dollars
And strumming this guitar is all I know
See, there’s two reasons I get out of bed each day
And loving you is my favorite one of those

Cause I want to be on you like your lipstick
And be as close as your shadow when I can
Yes I would do things your records can’t do
If you let me be your music man

I would be with you in silence
And I would hold onto you when it storms
I’ll dance with you and when the music stops
I’ll still be there to keep you warm

But sometimes records wear out
And songs don’t mean what they did before
And it’s true that hearts can sometimes break like needles
But we will take off our headphones, we will write a new song every time

I will be with you in silence
I will hold onto you when it storms
I’ll dance with you and when the music stops
I will still be there to keep you warm

If I was your music man
Just let me be your music man
If I was your music man
