An Accidental Man Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I was taught from much too young
To never give myself away
Yes, I was taught for every secret
Theres a price you have to pay

An accident of gender
An accident of birth
That holds me to this point of view
This time and place on earth
This time and place on earth

You ask me how Im feeling
But I only wish you knew
How hard it is for me to share?
Share those kind of things with you

Its not that I dont love you
Its just I cant connect
Cause I was taught from much too young
To shine and not reflect

Im an accidental man
Im an accidental man
Im an accidental man

You ask me if Im happy
I only wish I knew
Cause happiness is not something
That I ever learned to do

Its not that Im complaining
Its all the same to me
If everything that happens, happens
Accidentally

Im an accidental man
Im an accidental man
Im an accidental man
Im an accidental man

I was taught for every secret
Theres a price you have to pay
I was thought from much too young
To never give myself away

I was born to worthy causes
I was born to take the reins
I was taught from much too young
To never give myself away

An accident of gender
An accident of birth
That holds me to this point of view
This time and place on earth
This time and place on earth

An accident of gender
An accident of birth
That holds me to this point of view
This time and place on earth
This time and place on earth

So try and understand if
I dont say all I can
A stranger to myself, I am
A stranger to myself, I am
A stranger to myself, I am

Im an accidental man
I was thought from much too young
Im an accidental man
[Incomprehensible]
