"A Self-Made Man" as written by and Tom Petty....
If he don't want to talk
Leave him alone
If he don't want to talk
Leave him alone
He's a self-made man, he did it on his own

Now some folks say there' s a dangerous side
Some folks say he's got a danger side
He's a self-made man, he knows about pride

So help me baby, look what love can do
It scares me baby, does it scare you too?

Some folks say it was a woman he knew
So me folks say it was a woman he knew
He's a self-made man, he knows how to lose

So help me baby, look what love can do
It scares me baby, does it scare you too?

    General CommentThis is a really good song .. i get a little confused by the lyrics

    Now some folks say there's a dangerous side
    Some folks says he's got dangerous side
    ..
    So help me baby, look what love can do
    It scares me baby, does it scare you too?

    Maybe about an abusive husband..lover? I'm not sure
