The Man I Am Today Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

When I was smaller, wishing I was taller
I woke up one morning and my mama was gone
I tried to talk to my father, he told me not to bother him
He said, Boy being a man means being strong
Now leave me alone

So you say you wanna see behind this curtain
You wanna know why I don't show it when I'm hurting
It never did me any good before, so long ago I locked that door
But please don't think I'm pushing you away
It's just the man I am today

Before I was loved by you, girl, I didn't know how to
'Cause love was nothing to me but a four letter word
But I've learnt being strong, don't mean being alone
So baby just hold on and soon you're gonna know
The man I'll be tomorrow

You say you wanna see behind this curtain
You wanna know why I don't show it when I'm hurting
It never did me any good before, so long ago I locked that door
But please don't think I'm pushing you away
It's just the man I am today

It never did me any good before, so long ago I locked that door
But please don't think I'm pushing you away
It's just the man I am today
The man I am today

I don't wanna stay this way
I ain't gonna stay this way
The man I am today
I ain't gonna stay this way
