You're Not The Man Lyrics

by Sade

You're not the man who gave me everything I've ever wanted
You're not the man who stepped inside my life and haunted
Every, everyday

You're not the one who said he'd never leave
Couldn't breathe and could not sleep without me
That was someone who you left behind a long time ago

You're not the man who would bleed for me never shed a tear
You're not the one said he'd always be near

You're not the man who threw me a lifeline
And you're not the man I am so proud to call mine

And you're not the one who said he'd never leave
The one who made me believe in me
That was someone who could do no wrong and you lost him

You're not the man who would bleed for me but never shed a tear
You're not the one who said he'd always, always, always be here

Said he'd always, always be near

But don't get me wrong although it seems sad, it's not all bad
You see, I'm not the little girl I used to be

You're not the man
Not the one, said he'd always, always, always be near
He was everything you see, he made me believe in me
Said he'd always, always, always be here
