I Was the Man (©Bruce Wozny, 1999)
I was the man, the one who said he loved you
I was the man, who refused to be untrue
Maybe I know that I was wrong a time or two
Maybe I know that I am not the one you knew
when summer began; I was the man
I was the man, I know I’ve made a few mistakes
I was the man, I may have had a few bad breaks
All of my life, I’ve tried to do the best I could
All of my life, I’ve tried to do the things I should
according to plan; I was the man
Looking back, it was the morning of my life - you were part of it all
looking back, it was the dawning of my life - at the start, before the fall
I was the man, I know I’ve tried hard to be strong
I was the man, who made the best of what went wrong
What can I say? I’m only human after all. What can I do?
Haven't I come when you have called?
You called and I ran; I was the man
