lyrics

I just want to be that man behind the curtain
I don’t want to let you see inside of my mind
I don’t know much but I’m convinced the curtain
Is the one thing I must always stand behind

I’ve always been that man behind the curtain
And I wish I could make these memories go away
Waking up gasping for breath at night, hurting
It’s the same old dream I dream it every day

I got stories I can never tell
I been to the hill overlooking hell
And I looked down then I turned around
I need to know you’re by my side
Cause with you and God I’ll be alright
I’m certain
I need you to love the man behind the curtain

I’ll always be that man behind the curtain
It keeping me safe and it keeping you safe too
We’re both better off living with the curtain
It keeps the dark away and let’s the sun shine through

I got stories I can never tell
I been to the hill overlooking hell
I turned around, yes I turned around
And even though your by my side
Cause with you and God I’ll be alright
Im certain
I need you to love the man behind the curtain (x4)
