I'm Your Man

Album: I'm Your Man (1988)
  • 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 Writer/s: Leonard Cohen
