'Cause I'm a Man
Tame Impala Lyrics


Like the brutal morning sun
It dawns on me, what have I done?
Saying sorry ain't as good as saying why
But it buys me a little more time
Lost in the moment for the second time
Each fuck up that I make, it makes you cry
I'm as pathetic, as the reason why
In desperation, all that you can do is ask me why

'Cause I'm a man, woman
Don't always think before I do
'Cause I'm a man, woman
That's the only answer I've got for you (uh)
'Cause I'm a man, woman
Not often proud of what I choose
I'm a human, woman
A greater force I answer to

Once again, as it takes a hold
I am aware I'm not in control
You see, I have a conscience and it's never fooled
But it's prone to be overruled
You wanna know why I always think I'm right? (Ooh, why?)
You never accept defeat and let it slide (why? Why?)
I have no voice if I don't speak my mind (why?)
My weakness is the source of all my pride
I'll tell you why

'Cause I'm a man, woman
Don't always think before I do
'Cause I'm a man, woman
That's the only answer I've got for you (uh)
'Cause I'm a man, woman
I'll never be as strong as you
I'm a human, human
A greater force I answer to (uh)

Like a brutal autumn sun
It dawns on me, what have I done?
Saying sorry ain't as good as saying why
But it buys me a little more time
Lost in the moment for a second time
Each fucking doubt I make, unleash a cry
I'm just pathetic, that's the reason why
In desperation, all that you can do is ask me why
'Cause I'm a man, woman
Don't always think before I do
'Cause I'm a man, woman
It's the only answer I've got for you
'Cause I'm a man, woman
Not often proud of what I choose
I'm a human, woman
A greater force I answer to
Once again, as it takes a hold
I am aware, I'm not in control
(You see) I have a conscience and it's never fooled
But it's prone to being overruled
You wanna know what I always think I'm bind by
You never accept defeat or let it slide
But I have no voice if I don't speak my mind
My weakness is the source of all my pride
I'll tell you why
'Cause I'm a man, woman
Don't always think before I do
'Cause I'm a man, woman
That's the only answer I've got for you
'Cause I'm a man, woman
I'll never be as strong as you
I'm a human, human
A greater force I answer to

Watching this high af, think I’ve worked out the purpose of the video. It is to indicate what tends to happen in a typical relationship when both people are head over heels in love with one another.

The first scene is the two are introduced to one another, girl next door kind if thing and theres a connection straight away.

The second scene where it goes all dark and red is the guy finds out the girl has a partner and is upset (hence the water).

The third scene, the guy can’t get this girl out his head no matter where he goes.

Now the part where they’re at the disco this is like their time to get to know one another and by the looks of it things are going good.

Boom then because Tame Impala was like fuck that lets get straight to the point - the two get married as this can be seen by the gold ring for the mans head and the diamond forth woman’s head.

In the next scene, by the looks of things it didn’t last long as she is no longer with him and things are again red and trippy like a muh’fucker.

Now we see him drop to his knees and mad amounts of drugs rush to him so clearly this is his way of coping with the breakup.

The bit with the EMP on his head I couldn’t tell you whats going on there?? Maybe he’s on a 15 kill kill-streak?

So now man goes to find a release in a prostitute I think and falls in love with her but they both get mad vexed at one another, then they fuck again??

The morale of the video is that relationships are one big mind fuck and don’t fall in love with a prostitute🤯🤯

When I first heard this song, I didn't appreciate music the way I do now, so I would definitely want to hear this song for the first time again.
