Aiken, Clay - Measure Of A Man Lyrics




If one day you discover him
Broken down he's lost everything
No cars, no fancy clothes to make him who he's not
The woman at his side is all that he has got
Why do you ask him move heaven and earth
To prove his love has worth?

Would he walk on water
Would he run through fire
Would he stand before you
When it's down to the wire
Would he give his life up
To be all he can
Is that, is that, is that how you measure a man?

If by chance all he had to give you
Was three words wrapped around your finger
Would that be deep enough at the end of every day
And how will you ever know
If a man is what he says?

Why do you ask him to move heaven and earth
To prove his love has worth
Would he walk on water
Would he run through fire
Would he stand before you
When it's down to the wire
Would he give his life up to be all he can
Is that, is that, is that how you measure a man?

He never gives up
Lets go of his dream
His world goes around for his one true belief
Is that how you know
Is that what it means?

Would he walk on water
Would he run through fire
Would he stand before you
Would he will be your anchor when the dark unfolds
Would he always love you the best that he knows?

Would he give his life up
To be all that he can
Is that, is that, is that how you measure a man?

Would he walk on water
Would he run through fire
Would he stand before you
When it's down to the wire
Would he give his life up
To be all he can

Is that, is that, is that, how you measure oh...

Is that, is that, is that, how you measure a man?

    Clay is one of the nices guys that I know. He has a kind, giving and loving heart. We need more people in the World like Clay. It would be a much better place to live. I pray nothing but the best for Clay and his family. What a great 10 years it has been. I am looking forward to the next 10 plus years.

    In love

  29. Milleena Lefever

    Amazing Song! I think a lot of people should really take this to heart.

  30. SpookyNob95

    My mom was like in love with him when he was on American Idol and she would listen to this cd 24/7, to the point where within a few months me and my brother knew all the songs by heart. I went to see Clay when I was 8 years old, my first concert. I've seen him a total of 7 times now. He's an amazing musician, everyone at school makes fun of me because I like him. My only question is how can you not like him? :)

  31. survivorguy

    He is the greatest

  32. Emy Rhys

    I don't care about his personal life, HE ROCKS.

  33. BassTKD826

    @PeterTheZoo You deserve 100 thumbs up for that. People make big deals out of these things.

  34. BassTKD826

    @fobgurly I feel similar nostalgia. This song brings back memories of when American Idol was good, when I was 10.

  35. XxLata50xX

  38. casey lee

  39. Kevin Foster

    im not homo phobic or anything and im not like 10000000% in favor of gays but the fact is his sexuality has absolutly NOTHING to do with the song

  40. Vlican

    great song

  41. i3ffingl0veyouxxx

    his voice is sexy.

  42. Mich J

    <3<3<3 this song

  43. lovely1lover

    @saraperforms I know , it really sucks but his career right now is also fine but i really wished he'd continue promoting more, I really believed he could've been one of the most famous idols.

  44. Becky DiFilippo

    @lovely1lover same here

  45. lovely1lover

    awwwe I didn't mind he's gay, I STILL LOVE HIS VOICE! err i wanted him to continue.

  46. MrsShadows999

    The song is pretty much asking how you measure a man. It's kind of asking if you'd still love the person you "love" now if he were to lose everything. If all you were getting from being with him is who he is and the love he can offer you. It's basically saying that you shouldn't expect so much from a person if you truly love them. <3

    Thanks for the lyrics
