Family Man


(Hazen/Burgess)


Did you hear me rumble in this morning like I do 'most every night?
Outside, I see the dawn is pouring, turns the wrong into light
And I can see you are upset with me, so can I promise you the sun?
You can ask instead to have the sea, but, either way, it won't get done


It's my face that gives the giveaway, not my heart and not my eyes
I've tried my best, I know, to live the way - as an honest man who tries
I have now lost all of everything, I've got no where left to go
And I have lived inside this hollow ring so long it's all I know


I'll take the blame, I'll shake the disguise
I'll fake the shame, I will lie
I'll keep them all guessing 'til I'm done with my deeds
I've got no time for pressing, there's no ends to my needs


I'm a family man, I got a dog and a wife
I'm a family man, I got a job and no life
I'm a family man, I go the family way
I'm a family man, every family day


And if I've got to pay the rent, I'll find a way to do it
I remember right from wrong, but I forgot I knew it
When will this become a life that has more than this to it?
When will I give a damn?


I live a life that's right, don't blame me for my nightly vices
The kids, the food, the bills, I do my job, I pay the prices
I do everything I can do, nothing ever suffices
I'm a family man


It's my face that gives the giveaway, not the stories that I might tell
And I know there's no real escape for me out from this living hell
I thought I'd lost all of everything; I still got my will to live
And you can beg or steal and take from me all that I've got to give


I'm a family man, I got a dog and a wife
I'm a family man, I got a job and no life
I'm a family man, I got a mortgage on a home
I'm a family man, with no time of my own


I'm a family man, I got kids to take to school
I'm a family man, and I'm runnin' out of fuel
I'm a family man, with a lawn I got's to mow
I'm a family man, I got no money to blow


I'm a family man, I go the family way
I'm a family man, every family day
Every family day
