I have dreamed a dream, there a common man
Ah, hoping to rise to the top
I have sworn by my blood as your man, my love
That one day, I promise
One day your hurting would stop

But I'll never never never never change
I never change one single grain of sand
Oh, thanks to you baby
For just loving a common man
I want to thank you this evening

Oh, I thought, I thought that I failed you so
But that's when you turn around and look me in my eyes
And you let me know
You said and you said it softly
I didn't have to worry about being a common man
You said, "David, you don't have to worry about rising to the top"
You said, you said, you said I didn't have to swear by my blood

But ah baby, that one day your heartaches would stop
Then you put your arms around me and you said
You never never never never cared
If I never change one single grain of sand
You said, "I love you, baby
I love you for just being a common man"

For my gratitude just keep on growing
Yeah, for recognizing me, I thank you baby
Yeah, for respecting me, yeah I want to thank you, baby
For every time of need, Lord, I thank you baby
Oh for my gratitude, for respecting me, baby
For just being a common man
Ah I want to thank you babe

In a time of need, I want to thank you for respecting me
In a time of worry, I want to thank you for calming my troubles
Oh, I thank you baby
Thank you honey, for loving a common man like me
