What does it take to be a man? What does it take to see It's all heart and soul A gentle hand So easy to want and so hard to give How can you be a man 'Til you see beyond the life you live? Oh, what does it take to be a man?
We can be blind, but a man tries to see It takes tenderness For a man to be what he can be And what does it mean If you're weak or strong? A gentle feelin' can make it right or make it wrong What does it take to be a man?
The will to give and not receive The strength to say what you believe The heart to feel what others feel inside To see what they can see
A man is somethin' that's real It's not what you are It's what you can feel It can't be too late To look through the hate and see I know that's what a man can be
