about

Words and music by Terrence Higgins, with Rahman D'Amato

lyrics

I showed you I could be a man
Who was not like your dad
But you mistook me for a kid
Oh, you mistook me bad
You just want a little child
To comfort when he’s sad
Oh, I don’t want your mutha love
Just let me be
The man you’ll never know
‘Cause he’s a man you cannot see

Chorus:
Oh, I don’t want your sympathy
Don’t want you to comfort me
Don’t need no mutha love
I’m lookin’ for a friend
Help me find a friend
Oh, I need a friend

I get wracked with demon armies
Tearin’ at my mind
You come snakin’ ‘round my soul
Eyes all black and blind
I reach out, you laugh at me
Pretendin’ to be kind
Don’t waste your phony kindness
On someone like me
I got a life I’m gonna live
When the demons set me free

(Chorus)

I could not go to town with you
I had those evil blues
Playin’ chess with suicide
Hopin’ I would lose
You just want to hug me
'Cause you love me when I’m blue
Please don’t waste a hug on me
Just let me be
If I become your little boy
It’ll be the end of me

(Chorus)
