An Accidental Man Lyrics

Artist: Marillion
Album: This Strange Engine

(Music: Marillion Lyrics: John Helmer)

I was taught from the much too young
To never give myself away
Yes I was taught for every secret
There€™s a price you have to pay

An accident of gender
An accident of birth
That holds me to this point of view
This time and place on earth
This time and place on earth

You ask me how I€™m feeling
I only wish you knew
How hard it is for me to share
Share those kind of things with you

It€™s not that I don€™t love you
It€™s just I can€™t connect
€˜Cause I was taught from much too young
To shine and not reflect

I€™m an accidental man

You ask me if I€™m happy
I only wish I knew
€˜Cause happiness is not something
That I ever learned to do
It€™s not that I€™m complaining
It€™s all the same to me
If everything that happens, happens
Accidentally

I€™m an accidental man

I was taught for every secret
There€™s a price you have to pay
I was thought from much too young
To never give myself away

I was born to worthy causes
I was born to take the reins
I was taught from much too young
To never give myself away

An accident of gender
An accident of birth
That holds me to this point of view
This time and place on earth

So try and understand if
I don€™t say all I can
A stranger to myself I am
An accidental man

I€™m an accident
I€™m an accidental man
