Todd RundgrenFair Warning

You know, wishing won't make it so Hoping won't do it, praying won't do it Religion won't do it, philosophy won't do it The supreme court won't do it, The president and the congress won't do it The un won't do it, the H-bomb won't do it, The sun and the moon won't do it And God won't do it, And I certainly won't do it That leaves you, you'll have to do it I know that you've been wondering If I'm the same man inside Never tried to fool you 'cause I've got nothing to hide I gave you fair warning I could never be tied down 'Til I've seen paradise with my very own eyes Love owns us all, Time owns us all, Life owns us all But the world doesn't own me Don'tcha follow me now I ain't afraid to say I may have been wrong I have to go now I'd rather live by a dream than live by a lie And that's why There ain't no cure for what I've got baby We just have to suffer I feel no pain, I can't complain, Things could always be rougher But I picked up this banner And I just can't put it down (No) I can't let the world die just 'cause no one would try Don'tcha follow me now Everybody's got to find his own place in the sun, Everyone So shine on me now I'd rather live by a dream then live by a lie You can say what you will about me Talk is cheap and I don't mind When you lay your life down in them grooves You know you're bound to get scratched up sometime It's only just a song, pay me no mind I have to go now You've got to walk that road alone If you walk it at all Don't follow me now I gave you all fair warning Now it's goodbye And every once in a while why don't you think of me 'Cause it's a long, long time and a long way to go Can't you see the light shining in my eyes 'Cause it's just one victory 'Cause your dream goes on forever Don't you know that I've been trying To get my trip together Be a real man I got to be a real man 1, 2, 3, do it one more time Be a real man Everybody be a real man Go then, don't believe, and I don't know 'Cause I got to be a real man You can be a man, a real man I'll swim that river, climb that mountain You and me, we all gotta be, real men © 2018
