Lyrics

I just try to do whatever I can
And if I should cry, well you know
I'm only a man
To say you're only human
To say you're just a man
What does that mean?

'Cause I checked out, and it's easy to be a half
A half of nothing
But another man in a scarf
Avoiding confrontations, don't look me in the eye
When I'm looking at you
Are you doing the Caesar?

I always find a reckoning
Always find you beckoning towards me in the air
You embrace me in your memory
You were young and NME and I was in my hair

I'm not an ordinary millionaire

I, said the skull, I was bound to end up this way
I've got no love
'Cause it's not in my DNA
You say you're only human
My, what big eyes you have!
When you're looking at me
When you're doing the Caesar?

I don't know what you've done to me
I don't know what you want from me
I only know you're there
I don't know where you've gone from me
I know you don't belong to me
I only know you're there

I'm not an ordinary million
I'm not an ordinary million
I'm not an ordinary millionaire
