lyrics

She feels like and adult
when she loses teeth, she believes
for just a moment
there's something that she wants in me
and I can't say that I never wanted it anyway

I'd be like my father
I'm trying, but I can't relate
and I'm trying to stay focused,
but the worlds such an infinite place.
and I can't say I'm confident that I'm gonna be

but I'm a Modern Man
tying to make my move
I'm like a tree,
clinging to my roots
but you're not a bird
you won't fly to me...

and I've tried wearing your shoes.
they're planted, and they're sturdy, and they're plain
but I'm finding them too heavy
to be ready and quick on my feet
and I'm too damn impatient
to lock it in/buckle down/to commit
and I can't go forever,
never reaching/never reaching out/never...
and I can't say that I'm ready to go for another round!

but I'm a Modern Man
tying to make my move
I'm like a tree,
clinging to my roots
but you're not a bird
you won't fly to me...

mumble mumble... I need to start showing teeth.
