Spoken Like A Man

I SHARED MY BED WITH YOU HONEY
I SHARED ALL MY PILLOW TALK TOO
AND WHAT DID I GET IN RETURN FOR THAT?
A FEELING I SHOULD WATCH MY BACK

I SHARED MY HEAD WITH YOU HONEY
EVERY DREAM I EVER HAD
I STAYED HOME WHILE YOU TRAVELLED THE WORLD
YOU DIDN’T BRING DIAMONDS YOU NEVER BOUGHT ME PEARLS
BUT YOU’D STILL CALL ME YOUR GIRL

AND YOU SAID –
“ I LOVE YOU, I THINK I DO
I’M JUST CONFUSED, I NEED A BREAK
CAN YOU TRY TO UNDERSTAND”
AND I THOUGHT –“ SPOKEN LIKE A MAN”

I SHARED MY LIFE WITH YOU HONEY
GAVE YOU MY SUPREMO YEARS
I SAID I’D BE PATIENT LET YOU WORK IT THROUGH
A MAN’S GOTTA DO WHAT HE DO

I SHARED MY TRUTH WITH YOU HONEY
BUT HONEY DID NOT SHARE IT WITH ME
I WAITED AT THE CROSSROAD WITH MY HEART OUT OF SHAPE
WAITING, AS IT TURNED OUT, FOR A TREACHEROUS SNAKE
COS YOU WERE JUST PLANNING A WAY TO ESCAPE
INTO ANOTHER’S ARMS

AND YOU SAID –
“ I LOVE YOU, I THINK I DO
I’M JUST CONFUSED, I NEED A BREAK
CAN YOU TRY TO UNDERSTAND”
AND I THOUGHT –“ SPOKEN LIKE A MAN”

NOW YOU SAY WE CAN MAKE IT ALRIGHT
YOU WANT BACK IN MY BED AND MY HEAD AND MY LIFE
HONEY YOU CAN BEG ME FOR AS LONG AS YOU LIKE
BUT YOU AIN’T NEVER MY MAN

I SAID
“ I LOVED YOU, I REALLY DID
BUT I’M NOT CONFUSED, THERE’S NO MISTAKE
“YEAH I LOVED YOU, BUT THAT’S THE PAST TENSE
AND I’M NOT CONFUSED, THERE’S NO MISTAKE

AND I DON’T CARE IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND”

– SPOKEN LIKE A WOMAN

YOU CRY OUT LOUD A BOO
