I'M Your Man Poem by Leonard Cohen

I'M Your Man

Rating: 3.8


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

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--

A true man to a life partner and lover should be ready to absorb the anger hurled at him from his beloved, as love is what binds them.
