From the album A World of My Own

Lyrics

I never questioned or made a suggestion to you
And if I did it was only to show you the truth
Look at you flexin’ your newfound objections to me
How did you manage to learn how to stand on your feet, well I remember

CHORUS
‘Cause what you see, and what you believe
Was forged at my hand when I was your man
And the boat you row, was out of control
‘Till I took command, when I was your man

Don’t even say that you had what it takes all along
There was a time when you weren’t so refined and so strong
Gave you my life and a bit of advice clear and free
Now some other guy’s got a bit of the best part of me, so warm and tender

CHORUS

I’ve never been so blind
I never saw the sign

If it don’t kill you the stronger you feel, so they say
That’s some advice I should never have license to take, ‘cause I remember

‘Cause what you see, and what you believe
Was forged at my hand when I was your man
And the boat you row, was out of control
‘Till I took command, when I was your man
So every time you move through the line
You know it began when I was your man
When you're on your way, remember the day
I gave you the plan when I was your man
