      About "If I Were The Man You Wanted"

      Lyrics for Lyle Lovett - "If I Were The Man You Wanted"

      They all sat around in a circle
      They were all laughing and all telling lies
      Then the tall one he bumped in a dollar
      He said boys I've got nothing to hide
      Now if the King and the Queen stood together
      Then the ace he would not be to blame
      And if the cards were all laid on the table
      Then love could be more than a game

      And if the stars didn't shine on the water
      Then the sun wouldn't burn on the sand
      And if I were the man you wanted
      I would not be the man that I am

      And I have seen my share of long nights
      And I have told my share of lies
      And I have run into the darkness
      When I saw the look in your eyes
      But if the night didn't lie in the darkness
      Then the daylight would be hard to find
      And if the truth didn't turn to a weakness
      I would have never have spoken my mind

      And if the stars didn't shine on the water
      Then the sun wouldn't burn on the sand
      And if I were the man you wanted
      Then I would not be the man that I am

      So if you're going out to Carolina
      Then don't linger in New Mexico
      And if you think of the one there behind you
      Then you might not feel so alone

      And if the stars didn't shine on the water
      Then the sun wouldn't burn on the sand
      And if I were the man you wanted
      I would not be the man that I am
