Phil Joel – The Man You Want Me To Be lyrics

Lyrics :
I played the fool so long
Thought I was so strong
All the while You knew it wasn't true
Rerunning in my mind
Memories of another time
When all I ever lived for
Was You
Chorus 1
Jesus
Make me the man that You want me to be
Jesus
Make me the man that You want me to be
I've been listening all my life
Words are spoken all the time
I have heard the liars and the true
Voices twisting in the air
Sweetly sounding so unclear
But nothing can replace a word
From You
- Chorus 1 -
A child is but for so long
Turn around those days are gone
Nothing can replace the years of youth
I have swallowed lies
That tasted true
The plans I thought were sent from You
When all You wanted was for me
To be still
Chorus 2
Jesus
Make me the man that You want me to be
Jesus
Make me the man You want to see
[ Instrumental-Bridge ]
Bridge
The burning in the heart
Of man's deepest desire
Is rising like a flame
Oooh...
Chorus 3
Jesus
Make us the men you want us to be
Jesus
Make me the man You want me to be
The burning in the heart
Of our deepest desire
Is rising like a flame
Burning higher and higher
Burning in the heart
Of our deepest desire
Is to know You
The burning in the heart
Of our deepest desire
Is rising like a flame
Burning higher and higher
Burning in the heart
Of our deepest desire
Is to know You (Jesus)
The burning in the heart
Of our deepest desire
Is rising like a flame
Burning higher and higher
Burning in the heart
Of our deepest desire
Is to know You (yeah)
Jesus
Make us the men you want us to be
