Lyrics
Have you ever had that dream
When you are late, and you can’t scream
You drag your feet through gravity
Paralyzed and panicky
You’re the test I haven’t studied for
I hurry through the class room door
Sign my name and fill the date
The proctor says that I’m too late
I’m Pavlov’s dog inside a cage
Random shocks, I’m so afraid
I tremble there, I lick your hand
I am the learned helpless man

I’m just a guy
(even though you led me to the water’s edge)
I’m just a guy
(don’t think I understood a word you said)
I’m just a guy

You’re thinking of some number now
Between one and thirty-thou
And if by chance I guess it right
Sometimes you will stay the night
Time it was when we just kissed
But now I’m like some scientist
Testing formulas in bed
Do we make love or talk instead
You change the answers every day
The keeper of the magic way
An Einstein riddle I can’t beat
Since when is love a Mensa feat

I’m just a guy
(even though you led me to the water’s edge)
I’m just a guy
(don’t think I understood a word you said)
I’m just a guy

Watch you as you change your clothes
Smile as you paint your toes
Pampering the feminine
So you can turn my head again
Stare at you across the room
Imagine drinking your perfume
Sprawling close in movie seats
Take you home, love in the sheets
You wish that I had more mystique
Some ambition I would seek
But the man that you want me to be
Needs you to be in love with me
I’m just a guy
