Stryper – Ordinary Man lyrics

Verse 1
You try to put a tag on me, mama
You try to make out to be so good
You try to make love you like you think I should
You're hearin' stories 'bout me, baby
I'm not what you want me to be
Before you leave me, honey
I just want you to see

I am just what I am
I'm an ordinary man
If you love me, you'll understand
I'm an ordinary man

Verse 2
When we first met the fire was burning, girl
But now I'm tied to so many things
But I still love you, honey, please don't set me free

Repeat Chorus
Verse 3
You went and left me all alone, baby
But I still want you, girl, to see
I'll always love you, honey, please come back to me

Repeat Chorus
