"The Man Who ..." as written by and Josh Rouse....
He used to work in Central Park where
at least a dozen women broke his heart
and there he'd sit and think about his past

She lived in Brooklyn and she rode the trains
First she'd take the G then the L
and that is where they met upon that day

She wants to help him now

Cause he's the man who doesn't know how
He's the man who doesn't know how
He's the man who doesn't know how to smile

It's not that simple just to change a man
even if you think that you have skill
with disadvantaged hearts

So used some caution when you see him pass
He won't hurt you but his face is sad
and everyday he's breathin' through the gills
She's wants to help him now

Cause he's the man who doesn't know how
He's the man who doesn't know how
He's the man who doesn't know how to smile
He's not happy by himself

The summer turned into fall
And they took a little trip up to the cape
And that is where they laid their bodies down
And in the morning when the the sun came up
She looked at him just to say that she would never ever go astray
It's gonna work out now

Cause he's the man who doesn't know how
He's the man who doesn't know how
He's the man who doesn't know how to smile
He's not happy by himself
