Only a man whose broken can appreciate
The awful thing I feel
Only a man whose world is
Always real can ever know
And who could understand the
All consuming pain
Only a man whose weeping in the
Rain knows where to go

And it's not easy
When you realize that you are on your own
No, no, it's not easy
When you face the thought of living all alone

Only a man who wanders through the
Emptiness of every passing day
This is the man whose eyes know what
To see and what to say
And who could ever know the
Feeling in my heart
Only a man whose hopes and
Dreams are broken all apart

And it's not easy when you reach out in the
Dark to touch her face no, no, it's not easy
When instead you touch a pillow in her place

Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na, na na na na, na na
Na na na na, na na na na, na na
Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na, na na na na na

And it's not easy
When you think about the way
She combs her hair no, no, it's not easy
When the memory of her is everywhere

Only a man who lies awake and
Wonders will he never smile again
And this is the only man whose
Lonely nights can never end
And if you want to know what
Kind of man he'll be oh, listen my friend
I'll tell you all you'll have to know is me

And it's not easy, no, no it's not easy
Oh, it's not easy why, no, why
Well, it's not easy no, tell me, no, no, no
