Lyrics

Unmade Man

Written By: Mark McLaughlin

I was sleeping now I'm wide awake
I can tell one of us in this relation has made a change
See girl for me its not to late for us to renovate
But girl for you I can tell when your with me you living fake
Oh I been lost and found had my hurt kiss the ground but never have I felt like
But never have I felt like

chorus A

Unmade man
When you left you took my heart and something else along with you when you took my love away you took my life away with you
Girl you got me feeling like a Unmade man I said girl you got me feeling like A unmade man

2nd verse
Something inside of me has been taken out
Without you girl for me
There's no such thing as solid ground
Just when I trust in you you turn every thing upside down
If out of sight means out of mind how come your still in minds
Oh I been lost and found had my hurt kiss the ground but never have I felt like
But never have I felt like

Bridge
Where did it go tell me
Where did it go
All this love you had for me I want to know I ignored the signs now I'm here left behind
And all because I was oh so loyal to you
Had so much trust in you put so much love in you
And now I'm here like

Chorus A

Unmade man
When you left you took my heart and something else along with you
when you took my love away you took my life away with you
Girl you got me feeling like a Unmade man I said girl you got me feeling like a
Unmade man
