It's just another summer,
You're looking for a way to check out from this grind

'Cause there's a lifetime chance you've yet to find
To make it happen in this cold-hearted town
And you're feelin' that you're trapped
Well take a message from the man

It's the singer not the song
All the people sing along
It's the man behind the music
Inside you heart is achin'

Believe in what you say
You're looking for the limelight
Reachin' for a star to guide you on your way
Who's not afraid to come on strong

When it's comin' from the heart
It's the man behind the music
It's the singer not the song
