JMSN - Be A Man Lyrics




I see it in the distance
It's not a physical thing
It's like this reoccuring dream
See... see, I wanna get back to that, but
I know my life is much more
My purpose is much bigger than that
I'mma have to do something bigger
So that's when I realized that...
I gotta be a man
I gotta take control
I gotta step up
Cause who's gonna do it for me?

I still think of you
When I'm home alone
And it's a quarter to two
And I look at my phone
I know I'm not gonna die
Come on now, child
You know I got too much pride
You know I got too much pride

Nobody's gonna change my mind
Nobody's gonna ask the reasons why
I tried to make you understand
What it takes to be a man

All I seek is the truth
All I get is sticks and stones
So tell me, what do I do
With these broken bones?
Cause I've been walking for miles
Come on now, child
You know I've heard too many lies
Tryna waste no more precious time

Nobody's gonna understand
Nobody's gonna hold my hand
Oh lord knows I tried to understand
What it takes to be a man

Be a man
Be a man
Be a man
Be a man

Nobody's gonna understand
Nobody's gonna hold my hand
Oh I tried to understand
What it takes to be a man

And nobody's gonna waste my time
Don't you ever ask me why
