I'M Your Man - Poem by Leonard Cohen

If you want a lover
I'll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I'll wear a mask for you
If you want a partner
Take my hand
Or if you want to strike me down in anger
Here I stand
I'm your man

    FULL TEXT:

    I'm Your Man


    If you want a lover
    I'll do anything you ask me to
    And if you want another kind of love
    I'll wear a mask for you
    If you want a partner
    Take my hand
    Or if you want to strike me down in anger
    Here I stand
    I'm your man
    If you want a boxer
    I will step into the ring for you
    And if you want a doctor
    I'll examine every inch of you
    If you want a driver
    Climb inside
    Or if you want to take me for a ride
    You know you can
    I'm your man
    Ah, the moon's too bright
    The chain's too tight
    The beast won't go to sleep
    I've been running through these promises to you
    That I made and I could not keep
    Ah but a man never got a woman back
    Not by begging on his knees
    Or I'd crawl to you baby
    And I'd fall at your feet
    And I'd howl at your beauty
    Like a dog in heat
    And I'd claw at your heart
    And I'd tear at your sheet
    I'd say please, please
    I'm your man
    And if you've got to sleep
    A moment on the road
    I will steer for you
    And if you want to work the street alone
    I'll disappear for you
    If you want a father for your child
    Or only want to walk with me a while
    Across the sand
    I'm your man
    If you want a lover
    I'll do anything you ask me to
    And if you want another kind of love
    I'll wear a mask for you (Report) Reply

    Well this sounds like a very kind hearted man, a man that would do anything for the one he loves. I worry though if the pain might be just a little too much when the woman that loves back isn't the kindest type of woman, a woman that might take advantage of this beautiful man. the person you speak of in this little treasure would have to be very careful how he chooses. Very nice little treasure indeed.--Melvina-- (Report) Reply
