Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Goddamn, man-child
You fucked me so good that I almost said I love you"
You're fun and you're wild
But you don't know the half of the shit that you put me through
Your poetry's bad and you blame the news
But I can't change that, and I can't change your mood
Ah-ah

[Chorus]
'Cause you're just a man
It's just what you do
Your head in your hands
As you color me blue
Yeah, you're just a man
All through and through
Your head in my hands
As you color me blue
Blue, blue, blue

[Verse 2]
Goddamn, man-child
You act like a kid even though you stand six foot two
Self-loathing poet, President Moro, can you know it all?
You're trapped through the walls and the party gets bored of you
But I don't get bored to just see you through
Why wait for the best when I could have you?
You-oh-oh

[Chorus]
'Cause you're just a man
It's just what you do
Your head in your hands
As you color me blue
Yeah, you're just a man
All through and through
Your head in my hands
As you color me blue
Blue, blue

[Outro]
You make me blue
Blue, blue, blue
Blue, blue, blue
