I was supposed to be the rock
That you could stand on
Stronger than an old oak tree
But all you ever wanted was the one thing
That I never let you see -
The tender side of me

I tried to be a mountain
Solid and strong
All it took was your leavin'
To know I was wrong

[Chorus:]
A man ain't made of stone
A man ain't made of steel
The way I feel right now
I thought I'd never feel
And sometimes all it takes
Is facing the night alone
And that's when you know
A man ain't made of stone

In this world of mine there was
No room for weakness
I covered every crack in the wall
But there ain't no way that I can
Keep this secret
'Cause when you go
Like Cheriko I fall

You thought I wouldn't shatter
Would I even care?
But there's more to what I'm made of
Than this broken heart can bear

Repeat chorus
Sometimes all it takes
Is facing the night alone
And that's when you know
A man ain't made of stone
