10. Good Man

Land of the Living
by Jason Gray


If youíd asked me at 10 years old the man Iíd want to be
Iídíve said Billy Graham or Superman or somewhere in between
The hero in the story who stands up for what is right
The kind of guy you want by your side if it came down to a fight

Oh oh oh I still wanna be, still wanna be
Oh oh oh I still wanna be that man

Now Iím 40 years from 10 years old, with a history of mistakes
Chose that kryptonite so many times Iíll never wear that cape
I canít take back all the damage that Iíve left along the way
But I can own my sin and make amends and try another day


Strong enough to take a stand, a good man
Not afraid of tenderness, a good man
Heaven can you help me be who I wanna be?
Father, can you make that kind of man out of me?
A good man, A good man

I want to be the kind of man a womanís not afraid to trust
The kind of friend you call at 3 AM Ďcause you know that they'll show up
A man who keeps his word, whoís known for his integrity
When I get it wrong let me be known for my apology

Oh oh oh I still wanna be that man


I know one day my children will stand beside my grave
If nothing else I hope I leave good things for them to say
Oh oh oh until that day I hope they see
Oh oh oh though I stumble Iím still trying to be
