i don't want your promises

and you can keep those lines

even though you're looking good

and acting far too kind ...

the pretty words you whisper to me

only make me laugh

and keep those little tacky things

you bought on my behalf ...

i'm looking for a real man

who's sure of who he is

it's not a million dollar question

or a high school quiz ...

just bring it to me honestly

and be just who you are

it shouldn't be that hard to do

it's nothing that's bizarre ...

if i'm asking too much

please be man enough to say so

while it would still be easy

to simply let you go.
