'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

Definitely be a whole lot better if you were on some type of psychedelic. But then again everything’s better when you’re tripping. I’m hearing this for the first time not impressed by any means It’s an mediocre song. With no rhythm.

Samara Russel

Lorenzo Montagna

Same here. It's gonna start just now. Wow, started, so far seems pretty nice

My brother and I literally have a word to describe the feeling you get when you listen to music like this: buttered
