Take all of my worry
and take back all of my words,
before I never learn,
before I never learn
that I am not my problems,
I am not my money's worth,
where I went to school,
order of my birth.
And I am not the answer,
I am not the aftermath
or picture of the past,
but I didn't know, know, know,
I didn't know, know, know,
I didn't know, know

Someday on a mountain
I will face all of my fears
before I disappear,
but I'll never know, know
One night in the middle
of my merry golden dreams,
I will start to see
that I didn't know, know, know,
I didn't know, know, know,
I didn't know, know, know,
I didn't know, know

Take me for only a man!
Take me for only a man!
Take me for only a man!
Take me for only a man!

    My InterpretationI think this song is about looking back on a specific situation or a time period and realizing the time you wasted worrying about things or fearing things that would turn out not to matter in the end. It’s about the realization that you’re in control of your own life and that you should appreciate it, not fear it, not let others dictate it or depreciate the value of your life with their own fears, anxieties or expectations.
