i'm not the man i used to be

i don’t ever go out
and frequent our old bars
i don’t cry in my beer
and wonder where you are
i don’t drive down your street
to see if you’re home
i don’t sit in that chair
and wait by the telephone


no i’m not the man
i used to be
’m not the guy who loves the girl
who’s not in love with me
something had to change
or i knew i’d go insane
no i’m not the man
i used to be

i don’t care to go through
the photos that we took
i don’t ever see your face
everywhere i look
i don’t ever reach out
to hold you in the night
i don’t ever wonder
what’s going on in your life

no i’m not the man
i used to be
’m not the guy who loves the girl
who’s not in love with me
something had to change
or i knew i’d go insane
no i’m not the man
i used to be
