Storybook Man

Every time you look at me, are you proud to call me yours?
Am I unlike all the others? Do I make you feel more?
I know sometimes I’m cynical of the world we’re livin’ in
But that is what I’ve got to offer so I hope you’ll understand

I’m not a storybook kind of man

If that doesn’t suit you then I wouldn’t suit you
Your love will always be blue
But you could complete me and I could complete you
Our love will always be true
And I’d never lead you on

Years ago romance was something terrible and cruel
Now it’s all but second-nature when it comes to me and you
I know sometimes I’m critical of everything I am
But that is what I’ve got to offer so I hope you’ll understand

I’m not a storybook kind of man

We might run out of things to say
Or we might find our way
I’m not fiction or a childhood fantasy
