Little Man
LIVE at DIZZY's - track 1
music and lyrics: Tracey Roberts © 1993


 

When I met you for the first time
It was your brain that impressed me most
Not the lunches, not the cocktails, not the caviar on toast
We took a limo to a five star
You dined me to the hilt and then you drove me to the country
To see the mansion you had built

When I watched you in the kitchen preparing me a meal
I ate the lobster, I drank the champagne
You said that it was no big deal
Then you drove me to the airport
We jumped into your plane and flew to Paris for the weekend
To buy that special picture frame

I'll never be the lover
Or the woman you so desperately want me to be
But friendship is what I can offer
Little man, there's a woman for you with a much bigger heart
Than mine, in this moment in time, will ever be

When I told you on your schooner that I'd met someone new
You were silent, you were reeling, there was no way of reaching you
Then you took me back to my place, you wouldn't come inside
Then I knew that you would crawl in to your whiskey wonderland and hide

Love never happens when you want it to - ahh ahh! Ahh ahh!
It doesn't matter what you try to do, you can't make someone love you

When I found you in the nightclub
You were drunk and on the floor
Then you told me it was your birthday, you'd just turned forty four
You were drowning in depression
Where's the big man now?
Struggling with his own obsession and the power of his power

I'll never be the lover
Or the woman you so desperately want me to be
But friendship is what I can offer
Little man, there's a woman for you with a much bigger heart
Than mine, in this moment in time, will ever be
