Be a Man
words and music by Jackson Rohm

Just one slip, thatís all it takes
For two lives to be forever changed
No rehearsals, itís the real thing
You can hide away or you can buy a ring

At eighteen, so immature
Too scared to know he was in love with her
She was twenty five, ready to settle down
Never thought that he wouldnít stick around

Run, run, run away
Itís such a sad display
When nothing goes as planned
Itís hard to understand
Maybe itís time to be a man

He moved off to another town
Finished college, kept his head down
She told her family that she lost the child
Months passed before they saw her smile

As time passes, itís harder to pretend
And try not to think of what might have been
So he drinks more, helps him to forget
Dates plenty of girls but he wonít commit

Run, run, run away
Itís such a sad display
When nothing goes as planned
Itís hard to understand
Maybe itís time to be a man

Now ten years have come and gone
Heís right back where he started from
Just as careless as he used to be
Different girl, same reality

Run, run, run away
Itís such a sad display
When nothing goes as planned
Itís hard to understand
Maybe itís time to be a man
