lyrics

We don’t talk about it
We just let it loom
Could call it the elephant
In the corner of the room

Standing at a crossroads
Need to make a call
Do we stand together
Or divided do we fall?

Look into my eyes love
Take me by the hand
Give it to me honestly
Tell it to me true
What do you want to do
And do you want to be my man?

Chorus:
If you’re not gonna be my man
I don’t know how I’m gonna stand it
Every corner of this land
Will be so desolate and barren
And all the comforts that I know
No they will not help me no
If I’m abandoned
By you baby be my man

We don't talk about it
Unless it's in disguise
Only every look at it
Out of the corners of our eyes

Look into my eyes love
We could make a plan
We could make some promises
Tell each other true
What do you want to do
And do you want to be my man?

(Chorus)

I dreamed that we were walking
Through the city past apartments
That belonged to you
The world around us changed
With every step we took
I wondered how we'd make it through

I told you that I understood
I needed to go with you
When you went away
The still point that you made became
The one place where I knew that I was
Meant to stay

(Chorus)
