Im Your Man

 If you want a lover 
I'll do anything you ask me to 
And if you want another kind of love 
I'll wear a mask for you 
If you want a partner 
Take my hand 
Or if you want to strike me down in anger 
Here I stand 
I'm your man 
If you want a boxer 
I will step into the ring for you 
And if you want a doctor 
I'll examine every inch of you 
If you want a driver 
Climb inside 
Or if you want to take me for a ride 
You know you can 
I'm your man 
Ah, the moon's too bright 
The chain's too tight 
The beast won't go to sleep 
I've been running through these promises to you 
That I made and I could not keep 
Ah but a man never got a woman back 
Not by begging on his knees 
Or I'd crawl to you baby 
And I'd fall at your feet 
And I'd howl at your beauty 
Like a dog in heat 
And I'd claw at your heart 
And I'd tear at your sheet 
I'd say please, please 
I'm your man 
And if you've got to sleep 
A moment on the road 
I will steer for you 
And if you want to work the street alone 
I'll disappear for you 
If you want a father for your child 
Or only want to walk with me a while 
Across the sand 
I'm your man 
If you want a lover 
I'll do anything you ask me to 
And if you want another kind of love 
I'll wear a mask for you
