Tindersticks – I Was Your Man lyrics

So, you wish I was your man, and I'd understand
So, you wish I was your man, and I'd understand
Not a surface thing, we could meet down inside
Not a surface thing, we could meet way down inside

You've got a smile that never reaches your eyes
You want to try to do something right
So, take me home tonight
Turn out the light
You're just alone in the dark

So, you wish I was your man, in my consciousness you ran
In my eyes, you swam -- nothing's too much trouble for you
So, you wish I was your man, and I'd understand
So, you wish I was your man, and I'd understand you

You've got a smile that never reaches your eyes
You want to try to do something right
So, take me home tonight
Turn out the light
You're just alone in the dark
