If I ever leave you, baby
You can say I told you so
And if I ever hurt you
You know I hurt myself as well

Is that any way for a man to carry on?
Do you think I want my loved one gone?
Said, I love you more than you’ll ever know
More than you’ll ever know

When I wasn’t making much money
You know where my paycheck went
You know I brought it home to you, baby
And I never spent a red cent

Is that any way for a man to carry on?
Do you think I want my loved one gone?
Said, I love you more than you’ll ever know
More than you’ll ever know

Now listen to this
I’m not trying to be, just any kind of man, no I ain’t
I’m just trying to be somebody
You can love, trust and understand

I know, I know, I know that I can be
A part of you that no one else could see, yeah
But I gotta hear you say, I got to hear you say
It’s alright

I’m only flesh and blood
But I could be anything that you demand
I could be King of everything
Or just a tiny grain of sand, now tell me

Is that anyway for a man to carry on?
Do you think that I want my loved one gone?
I love you more than you’ll ever know
I said, “I love you, I love, I love you”
Don’t want nobody else but you
