Aqua - Be A Man Lyrics

The world is quiet,
like there is no one around,
but I feel you beside me
I know the secrets,
you keep locked away inside
Don't understand why you're fighting

I know she must be special,
this new girl by your side
I seek for answers when I look into your eyes,
And it hurts like hell but, I will be strong

For once in your life, be a man
Just tell me the words, 'cause I know that you can
Don't leave me with scars that no one can heal
For once in your life - be a man

You made me love you,
love you right from the start
You're controlling my heart, babe
Don't pack your bags yet
Give me time to say goodbye (Say goodbye)
Just don't leave me wounded

No, I just hope you will regret the things you do
Come back to me,
'cause our love is the real thing
And it hurts like hell, but I will be strong..

For once in your life, be a man
Just tell me the words, 'cause I know that you can
Don't leave me with scars that no one can heal
For once in your life - be a man

I knew that I,
I fought to keep our love strong
If you leave me now,
you come running back for more, babe
And I hope for, and I wish for,
and I pray, that the words from your mouth can,
eventually make you a man...

For once in your life,
be a man...
When everything stops -

for a minute in your life,
I'll hope that,
for once in your life, be a man
(be a man)
Just tell me the words, 'cause I know that you can,
Don't leave me with scars,
that no one can heal

For once in your life - be a man
Be a man...
Tell me the words...

Once in your life...
Be a man...
Tell me the words...

    My favourite song on the aqua album.....soft and tender and lovely.... from the pretty and angel singing voice of Lena nystrom. I wish there could have been a actual music video for this song... It would be nice for aqua if they did a collaboration album with toybox.

  34. Daniel Belardino

    Love them! Thos song is so underrated..and kinda sad😢 I'll always love them..brings me back to my teen years. always thought them kinda an outerspace version of No Doubt. And I'm sure they were influenced by the B-52's as well.💖🎶😘😍🎶🎶🎶

  39. Adam Sukenick

    Aquarium is a great album. But I still can't stand Barbie Girl.

    Martin GGPP

    I always think that Barbie Girl was a wrong choice song, nobody would take the group seriosly..

  40. Amazigh Aselti

    Célia je ne sais pas si tu écoute toujours !!! mais moi oui !

  43. Sara Totaro


  44. Jack Shampoci

    My iphone is full of 90's songs like ; Aqua, Spice girls, S club 7, BSB, NSync, Boyzone, Westlife, 98Degrees, Bwitched, Steps, A1, 911, Blue, Savage Garden, etc. No matter how many times I listen & sing never get bored, best songs of all the times. Now...justin bieber, 1D, taylor swift, selena gomez, rihanna, katy perry, song is nothing compare to 90's.


    Jack Shampoci. don't forget everybody's favorite lesbian group T.A.T.U!!

  56. Nikki Mckay

  58. anthony pucci


  59. Mario Dell'Angelo

    what a beautiful voice and beautiful woman

    Ram Lastname

    Seriously. Also: So perfectly Nordic.

  60. notgrillo collector/ gamer

    the boys in the group R hot!! specially the blonde. I like this song too.

  61. Jason Norment

    That was The Bangles....not Aqua....wrong decade

  62. Jason Norment

    They are insecure because of BARBIE GIRL....that song left a bad taste in many mouths and because of that, they are so afraid to admit they like this band. Personally, I hate that song, but one song doesn't mean the band is shit as so many think now. I agree with you though, listen to what ya dig and everything will be good

  63. Rhiannon Starr

    Personally I like the Barbie song lol but because I came looking for the Barbie song, I found their other music and have been a fan for years now :)

  64. W Bennett

    Her Voice has the same effect as Chakra Music

  65. Keyser Söze

    I shave my legs to most of their music. I find it quite liberating! My mamma said is my favorite and I ain't gay.

    ANTON Komaroov

    Fuck off lmao

  66. nevergonnaletudown

    For some reason I can see Shania Twain singing this song in a pop/country style and making it popular.

  67. Carlos Machado


  68. LeClair

    I prefer: Im a Barbie girlz!

  69. Adonis Sun

    I do like this song since it got the soft melody and meaningful lyric, it could even be a background music of certain movie.
    Thanks for sharing one of Aqua's best songs.

  70. Stacy55ish

    Nothing wrong with Barbie Girl. It demonstrates how Aqua conveys the message of how society can be superficial with humor, and without being preachy. It's fun with something to say, and is one of the things that make this band unique.

  71. Skeever Hunter

    Eternal Flame ? :)

  72. SweetSeline777

    18 people a sissy`s

  73. thisfuckinsucks1

    do the right thing!

  74. Perian Perrierin

    thanks for putting this up!

  75. djperryboy

    It was never underrated.. it was one of the most famous bands ever in the 90's. I agree that Barbie Girl is not their best song but its neither their only hit. They released plenty of hits during the 90's. Especially from their first album. But new meat gets old too. Their songs is now at the best place it should be. It comes up now and then at special moments in movies and such things. It's not some kind of music they're playing on the radio til your ears falls of.

  76. redmr2na

    Aqua is quite possibly the most underrated 80s/90s band. They are actually good band, with some decent songs. Unfortunately they are known for their most popular, yet most aweful song. Barbie Girl really didn't show what this band could do. They got brushed aside because of it. Many cds I've boughten from bands like Aqua I've actually discovered that their much more then the one song they are known for.

  77. John P

    LOL... good one!

  78. StarWarrior008

    you will be a man when you learn how to spell.

  79. erbel velasco

    love this track! god! i'm a man! i'm a faqing MAN!

  80. Ena1405

    hmm....nic dodac nic ujac

  90. Aamir Afzal

    wow what a song... she had such a beautiful voice... why do good singers stop singing...alll we hear is shitface bieber and gaga

    Sreenath Aether

    The real question is why do shitbags like you exist. Inbreeding?

    Nick Alphonso

    @Sreenath Aether ur a fucking biebeir fan ur a subhuman wast of space

    Firstname Lastname

    @Sreenath Aether she has proper ability, not justin. That's the reason.

  91. iris wigle

    This is my favourite Aqua song.

  92. linda N

    @DonWon313 and whats wrong with lesbians?

  93. Mark

    Donwon, she USED to be a coke addict (the song Aquarius should dispel any thoughts to the contrary), and for a while her body showed the ravages that drug could do to the human body, and the tricks that got played on her mind.
    Once she straightened herself out, she became one of the 25 most beautiful women living today. Too bad you can't see her photo portfolio'd be absolutely amazed how gorgeous she is.

  94. Weichen

    Thumbs up, if you listen to this song and think about russell peters "Be a Man"

  95. Oana B

    I love this song... I can die for it!!!!!!

  96. DonWon416

    why did i used tot hink she was so hot? shes not that attractive she kinda seems like a lesbo

  97. brent pal

    @vacantcoffin right there with you
