to be a man lyrics – boston

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
’till 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
