The Robert Deller Band – A Simple Man lyrics

Verse 1
I am just a simple man made out of clay
Created by God above on a rainy day in May
I can’t begin to know what I’m even doin’ here
Sometimes I wish I was invisible wish I could disappear

Verse 2
When I was younger I was bullied and pushed around
I can still hear those names they called me try to bring me down
Why do people have to be so mean and cruel?
Why can’t we all get along and live by the golden rule?

Chorus
I don’t ask for much in life, I’m just a simple man
I don’t know what you want from me, I’m doin’ the best I can
The cross I carry is my business my broken bones will heal
All I ask is that you be kind and love me for who I am

Verse 3
What did I ever do to you to cause you to be so angry inside?
I didn’t start this fight and no more will I hide
You say that you hate-me-for things, you don’t even understand
Gonna stand my ground, I’m drawing a line, right here in the sand

Chorus
I don’t ask for much in life, I’m just a simple man
I don’t know what you want from me, I’m doin’ the best I can
The cross I carry is my business my broken bones will heal
All I ask is that you be kind and love me for who I am

Bridge Pre-Chorus
The cross I carry is my business my broken bones will heal
All I ask is that you be kind and love me, love me for who I am

Chorus
I don’t ask for much in life, I’m just a simple man
I don’t know what you want from me, I’m doin’ the best I can
The cross I carry is my business my broken bones will heal
All I ask is that you be kind

And love me, just love me for who I am
‘Cause I am, a simple man
Rit
