Lyrics

INVISIBLE MAN

In my mind I hold a picture of the woman that I desire
I want to make her smile, to treat her with style
I want to set her soul on fire
But when my beauty looks at me, I find I’m lost in the beholder’s eye
Like an invisible wall I can’t get through at all
No matter how long or hard I try

I’m behind you, in front of you, above you, beneath you
Behind you, in front of you, above you, beneath you
I’m the one who’d love to meet you
Love to meet you

Well, I may not fit the picture of what you look for in a man
But so many times, that picture’s left you crying
Girl, you’d better take a look again
‘Cause I’m not somebody from a movie or something in a magazine
And if you took the time to take a look, you’d find
That I am much more than I seem

I’m behind you, in front of you, above you, beneath you
Behind you, in front of you, above you, beneath you
I’m the one who’d love to meet you
Love to meet you

No, no, no, no, no, no. no, no, no, no more crying
No, no, no, no, no, no. no, no, no, no more heartache
No, no, no, no, no, no. no, no, no, no longer lonely
Can you see me, do you know who I am?
Baby, must I always be the Invisible Man?

Tossed by your emotions, like a surfer in a hurricane
Why does each beginning seem to look so different
But they all end up the same?
You’re the prisoner and the jailer and neither one has the key
You’ve let the “hows” and “whys” create a cage of lies
But, baby, I can set you free

I’m behind you, in front of you, above you, beneath you
Behind you, in front of you, above you, beneath you
I’m the one who’d love to meet you
Love to meet you
