I’ve been waiting for my man

To take all my problems with one hand

He’ll take me to a beach in Nice

Maybe I’ll find a little peace

A little peace

 

‘Cause my mind’s been open ‘til 4 am

Thinking about nothing if he can

Take me away, this white knight

Maybe everything will be alright

It’ll be alright

 

If you see, see my man

If you see, see my man

Tell him don’t be late

I’ve been waiting too long

Girls aren’t meant to be this strong

 

I thought it’d be over with one kiss

Thought he’d hit and run and cut

To the end of the movie

Cry during credits, exit out smoothly

With your date in tow

But i’m still waiting in the exit row

And thinking maybe

But i’m growing restless baby

 

If you see, see my man

If you see, see my man

Tell him don’t be late

I’ve been waiting too long

Girls aren’t meant to be this strong

 

It’s alright, it’s alright if you got lost on your way here

It’s alright, it’s alright if I’m not high on your list of priorities dear

It’s alright x8

 

If you see, see my man

Tell him I don’t understand

I wrote him this song so if he gets here

He’ll know what’s going on

This girl’s grown strong

This girl’s grown strong
This girl’s grown strong

 

LINER NOTES

Produced By: Artemesia Black Studios

Christina Li releases “My Man” on the back of her 2020 debut single “Keep Me Company.” “My Man” sets an alternative rock tone for powerful lyrics that don’t hold back on female fallibility: 

 

“If you see my man, tell him don’t be late. I’ve been waiting too long - girls aren’t meant to be this strong.”

 

The feeling evoked by the new track can best be described with the following statement: 

 

“When you know you’re in love you have great times, and you use them to balance one let down after another,” explains Li of the deceptively upbeat “My Man.” “Those disappointments can pile on, and sometimes you need to embrace who you are regardless of what others expect of you. Hurtful experiences or heartbreak can give way to a new found self empowerment and reliance.”

 

Li is on hiatus travelling around New Zealand before heading home to San Francisco. This song is her goodbye to one of the greatest and most impactful chapters in her life.
