Del Amitri

Del Amitri were a Scottish alternative rock band, formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 1983. The band grew out of Justin Currie's Jordanhill College School band and came together after teenager Currie placed an advertisement in the window of a music store asking for people who could play to contact him. … more »

I still don't believe it, how much we lied
Last night you made it with him
Now I'm supposed to be dignified
Just like a man

Well I spend my night times drinking
And you spend your days in bed
And I guess it's up to us to choose
The methods by which we forget

And just like a man he holds you gently
And just like a man he strokes your hair
And just like a man I still pretend that I'm
Immune to the whole affair

But I want to die, I want to cry,
I want to tell you I was wrong
Yeah I want to die, I want to cry but it's too late
So I soldier on just like a man

I don't believe it, you were easy to leave but now
I do my best to relieve it the only way I know how
Just like a man

And I don't want to possess you,
I don't want to take his place
But I don't want to see my last few pleasures
Written all over his face

And just like a man he holds you gently
And just like a man he strokes your hair
And just like a man I still pretend that I'm
Immune to the whole affair

But I want to die, I want to cry,
I want to tell you I was wrong
Yeah I want to die, I want to cry but it's too late
So I soldier on just like a man

And I have something to tell you
But it doesn't matter now
I'll stick to small talk
And leave the little bits of flattery to him
And I could call you but why would I bother to
You might not be in or he might misunderstand
Just like a man
