Feist – A Man Is Not His Song lyrics
[Chorus]
A man is not his song
A song is a promise
If a man is just his song
Then the song is beyond us

[Verse 1]
How they, they make it up
And it sends in deep elation
Eventually it could let you down
By believing in standing ovation
Song won’t lift up if made by revenge, so sweet
I will, will it to add up to more than you or me

[Chorus]
'Cause a man is not his song
And I’m not a story
But I wanna sing along
If he’s singing it for me

[Verse 2]
That filament that flies by
And it brings yellow light from those yellow summers back
By coconut palm, snowy pine
I’ve heard years pass through my ears to hear otherwise
We all believe in old melodies
Carry tunes around like they carry me

[Bridge]
A man is not his song
Though we all wanna sing along
We’ve all heard those old melodies
Like they’re singing right to me

[Outro]
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed

More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed
More than a melody’s needed

[Snippet of Mastodon's "High Road"]
