WALK LIKE A MAN

Album version


I remember how rough your hand felt on mine on my wedding day
And the tears cried on my shoulder I couldn't turn away
Well so much has happened to me that I don't understand
All I can think of is being five years old following behind you at the beach tracing your footprints in the sand
Trying to walk like a man

Well by Our Lady Of The Roses we lived in the shadow of the elms
I remember ma dragging me and my sister up the street to the church whenever she heard those wedding bells
Well would they ever look so happy again yeah the handsome groom and his bride
As they stepped into that long black limousine for their mystery ride
Well tonight you step away from me and alone at the alter I stand
As I watch my bride coming down the aisle I pray for the strength to walk like a man

Well now the years have gone and I've grown yeah from that seed you've sown
But I didn't think there'd been so many steps I'd have to learn on my own
Well I was young and I didn't know what to do when I saw your best steps stolen away from you
Now I'll do what I can, I'll walk like a man
And I'll keep on walking
