Half a Man

I thought that I'd truly found someone
I thought that the cause was unconditional
Thought that the games we played had gone
With all of our consciousness
 
I woke up last night
In a sweat with fear
For I dreamt she'd returned
With everyone for me
But now I condone
That love for me
Was only trickery
 
She's left me half a man
A broken man
A twisted man
If a man is what I am
 
And so I return
To what I feared
That you live life alone
With occasional compliments
Beware that with every heart of gold
It retains it's currency
 
So if you believe
Love's cost is free
You can call me a fool
To call it robbery
Oh, but I only know
That I once was whole
And now there's
Half of me
 
'Cause she's left me half a man
A broken man
A twisted man
If a man is what I am
But she, she's left me sleepless nights
Of wrongs, no rights
Only blacks, no whites
Only half a man
 
Oh no, it can't be over
Please tell me it's not over
It can't be over
 
She's left me sleepless nights
Of wrongs, no rights
You see I'm a broken man
I'm a twisted man
