king of the tragic ones lyrics – dime store prophets

i am just a friend, i am just a friend.
your p*ssions laid captive to the mercy of these men,
i am just a friend, i am just a friend.
condemnation, frustration, and a crude revelation,

emotions are bruised.
your heart is spent.
love is everything, i am just a friend, i am just a friend.
lay down your walls, they don’t mean a thing,
keep on shining baby, now’s your chance to sing.
i’m a few years older, but a couple years shy.
i am just a man, i am just a man.
my eyes are so hungry, i’m never satisfied,
i am just a man, i am just a man.
gratification, temptation, righteous indignation,
my eyes are so weak and your skin is so strong.
scoundrel, trapped by my device,
i am just a man, i am just a man.
i don’t want to hold you in jezebel eyes…
now i’ve made some promises that have never come to p*ss,
i am just a man, i am just a man.
i will love you this night, you can keep your shirt on,
i am just a man, i am just a man.
revelation, elation, a beauty fixation,
drunk with p*ssion, i’ll try to resist.
love is everything, i am just a man, i am just a man.
men will come and men will go,
with the eyes they’ll steal your clothes,
still,
i’ll be there.
the eyes of god have drawn your face,
i could never take his place,
still,
i’ll be there.
