I'm Your Man Lyrics

Play "I'm Your Man"
on Amazon Music

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...

    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 .............

    The man can only love so much, he cannot give of his love fully to the woman. He has made promises he cannot keep. She is having second thoughts, he is scared of losing her and has said he will do anything she wants for him, but the one thing she will never have is his full unconditional love. If she wants that he would have to wear a mask for her and it would be fake as he cannot love. Basicly he is saying to her ask me and I will do anything at all but dont ask for another kind of love.

    Hehe Im the first to interpret this song it seams. And obviously it needs no interpretation...
    But here it goes anyway, cause I have nothing better to do at the moment!

    Its about a man that would do anything for the woman he desires. He would be anything that she'd need. But devastatingly she doesn't want him, he lost her cause he broke his promises to her. And he realize that even if he "begged on his needs and clawed at her sheets and howled at her beauty like a dog in heat" She wouldn't take him back.

    I personally love this song. Very erotic. Every womans dream I believe. To be desired to that degree. But really, its true as the lyrics says, no woman wants a man that has lost his pride. Even tho a man howling like a dog in heat is very... tempting...
