Don't have the vison of Spike Lee Don't have the hand of Da Vinci Don't have no wings on man Can't fly like Michael Jordan I'm just not that kind of guy Don't have the wisdom of Ghandi No muscles like Muhammad Ali Don't have a gangster's heart Or a platinum rolls to park I don't have no fancy things I'm just a Soulman Listen here baby I'm not a superman Not at all It's just me and my dreams And despite what it seems It ain't much but yet it's just enough Don't have the charm of Denzel's smile Don't have the cool of Cary Grant's style Don't have a special mind Or the genius of Einstein I'm just not that kind of guy Don't have the walk of Neil Armstrong Don't have the power of King Kong, no Don't have Obama's smarts Or the will of Rosa Parks Nor the courage of Mandela I'm just a Soulman Listen here baby I'm not a superman Not at all It's just me and my dreams And despite what it seems It ain't much but yet it's just enough Well, I'd love to be just like one of them Have something special I know that I'll try the best that I can But what should I do in the end? I'm just a Soulman Listen here baby I'm not a superman Not at all (No, no) It's just me and my dreams And despite what it seems It ain't much but yet it's just enough (It is just enough, yeah) I'm just a Soulman Listen here baby (No, no, no, no) I'm not a superman Not at all It's just me and my dreams (Aaaaaah) Yeah-ee-yeah It ain't much but yet it's just enough Oh-oh-oo oh

We could fly away to tabletop mountains, run away to cloudy fields, stay up late into the morning. Stay up dancing on top of trees. But you sit around the dining table, dreaming of crossing stormy seas. Sit around looking for cosmic conversation, but now its time to fight and time's got you on your knees. Oh, nobody's child. Set your soul on fire. Oh clear your mind, cause now we're plugging into the live wire. Ever heard a voice in the park when it's raining so hard? Ever seen a light in the dark when you stared at your scars? Now you're wondering what they've been doing when they've been gone so long. Ever wondered why life isn't like that song we used to sing? Oh, nobody's child. Set your soul on fire. Oh clear your mind, cause now we're plugging into the live wire.

Look at me I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree And I feel like I'm clingin' to a cloud I can't understand I get misty, just holding your hand Walk my way And a thousand violins begin to play Or it might be the sound of your hello That music I hear I get misty whenever you're near Don't you know that you're leading me on? And it's just what I want you to do Can't you see that I'm hopelessly lost? That's why I'm following you On my own When I wander through this wonderland alone Never knowing my right foot from my left My hat from my glove I'm too misty, and too much in love Too misty And too much Too much in love

Living out here always seemed like hell to me. A bourgeois dream, a dadaist fantasy. Riding the train, looking for shit to see -- living out here for hat? Clarks and experts doing their checks is key, Skyping late to preserve my sanity. National pride is my biggest enemy, all this faceless dialogue for what. Comme ci, comme ça -- it's all the same to me. Puis-j'avoir votre compagnie (votre compagnie). Living out here always seemed like hell to me. A bourgeois dream, a dadaist fantasy. Stu-tut-tering a needles apology, this summer's all I've got.

about

Wildly I will go to dust and ashes when I die.
Grow my bones to darkling trees and stretch my mind across the sky.
