Grateful Man

I knew how the thing worked:
For a time blood filled your core
every time she called your name
For a time then you were patient
You were settled
You were tame
And that's the path love ran

I didn't know I was striving
I had no sort of fateful plan;
I grew up to love a woman
and now I'm a grateful man.

I understood the system:
Man was built to fret and rage
she wasn't his alone
until the time came that her fire
and his passion
had all flown
And that's the path love ran

I didn't know I was yearning
I had no sort of fateful plan;
I grew up and earned a woman
and now I'm a grateful man.

And I found out that when you laughed
I laughed
and I cried when you cried
I found I dreamt of no one but you
and I was satisified

I love to make you laugh
I love to fan your flame
I love to see your face
I love to hear your name
