Rodney Atkins Lyrics

The Man I Am Today Lyrics
When I was smaller wishing I was taller
I woke up one morning and my momma was gone
I tried to talk to my father
He told me not to bother him
He said boy being a man means being strong
Now leave me alone

So you say you wanna see behind this curtain
You wanna know why I don't show it when I'm hurting
It never did me any good before
So long ago I locked that door
But please don't think I'm pushing you away
It's just the man I am today

Before I was loved by you
Girl I didn't know how to
'Cause love was nothing to me but a four letter word
But I've learned being strong
Don't mean being alone
So baby just hold on girl and soon you're gonna know
The man I'll be tomorrow

You say you wanna see behind this curtain
You wanna know why I don't show it when I'm hurting
It never did me any good before
So long ago I locked that door
But please don't think I'm pushing you away
It's just the man I am today

It never did me any good before
So long ago I locked that door
But please don't think I'm pushing you away
It's just the man I am today

I don't wanna stay this way
I'm not gonna stay this way
The man I am today
I ain't gonna stay this way
