Dan Bern - Feel Like A Man

Song Lyrics

I saw Marlon Brando on the big screen like a hero
Maybe I can feel just like one too
For three or four hours I felt like nobody could touch me
Then I skated back to feeling like I do

I'm lost, crazy lonesome
A plane with no place to land
I do what I have to
To make me feel like a man
Make me feel like a man

When I was 22 years old
My daddy he was 70
I didn't know how a young mans supposed to be
A few years after that
He breathed his final breath
But there's some secret he forgot to whisper to me

I'm lost, crazy lonesome
A plane with no place to land
I do what I have to
To make me feel like a man
Make me feel like a man

And I look in the mirror
And I wait for the damn thing to speak
Who needs answers?
One good question would be a relief

So I'm going to all the movies
And I memorize my lines
And try to stumble through another day
And I'm always looking for the perfect jacket or a million dollars or a bullet
Is it only me who goes through life this way

I'm lost, crazy lonesome
I'm a plane with no place to land
I do anything
To make me feel like a man
Make me feel like a man
Make me feel like a man
