Maybe I’m amazed at the way you love me all the time

Maybe I’m afraid of the way I love you

Maybe I’m amazed at  the way you pulled me out of time

And hung me on a line

Maybe I’m amazed at the way I really need you

Maybe I’m a man and maybe I’m a lonely man

Who’s in the middle of something

That he doesn’t really understand

Maybe I’m a man and maybe you’re the only woman

Who could ever help me

Baby won’t you help me understand

Maybe I’m a man and maybe I’m a lonely man

Who’s in the middle of something

That he doesn’t really understand

Maybe I’m a man and maybe you’re the only woman

Who could ever help me

Baby won’t you help me understand

Maybe I’m amazed at the way you’re with me all the time

Maybe I’m afraid of the way I leave you

Maybe I’m amazed at the way you help me sing my song

Right me when I’m wrong

Maybe I’m amazed at the way I really need you
