Wide Mouth Mason – Why lyrics

I have tried to understand
I have tried to be a better man
But your world's too hard to see
And your words are killing me

I don't ask that much of you
I just want to hear the truth
But you keep on passing by
Look the other way when I see your eyes

Why can't I be your baby
Why can't I be your man
I ... it's driving me crazy
Why I don't understand

You had all I could give
And I believed you deserved it
Now you're making me realize
Talk about "couldn't make the sacrifice"

See I thought you were serious
But it seems you're scared of us
So now I can't see straight
I guess I'm the one who's been afraid
