Lyrics

THE MAN I SHOULD BE
Words & Music by Bubba Chambers

Why can’t I see things that you see when we look deep down inside of me?
Why can’t I be what I should be? How I hate my own hypocrisy. 

Chorus
But that voice that I hear is so strong and so clear 
and He’s tenderly calling to me.
Things I know in my head, thoughts I’ve lived and I’ve said,
oh, please make me the man I should be. 

Why can’t I walk, like my mouth talks, only thinkin’ ‘bout what others see?
Who do I think that I’m foolin’? I’m not foolin’ anyone but me. 

Chorus

When I break out of my old grave clothes,
looking like something you’ve never seen.
Rising high up with the angels, then I’ll understand this mystery. 

Chorus
