There is a tide in the affairs of men. Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune”.

Man in the Mirror.

I’m gonna make a change, for once in my life.
It’s gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference,
Gonna make it right.
As I, turn up the collar on my favourite winter coat.
This wind is a blowin’ my mind.
I see the kids in the street, with not enough to eat.
Who am I, to be blind pretending not to see their needs?
A summer’s disregard, a broken bottle top and a one man’s soul.
They follow each other on the wind ya know,
‘Cause they got nowhere to go.
That’s why I want you to know,
I’m starting with the man in the mirror.
I’m asking him to change his ways,
And no message could’ve been any clearer.
If they wanna make the world a better place,
Take a look at yourself and then make a change.
I’ve been a victim of a selfish kind of love.
It’s time that I realize there are some with no home,
Not a nickel to loan.
Could it be really me pretending that they’re not alone?
A willow deeply scarred, somebody’s broken heart,
And a washed out dream.
They follow the pattern of the wind, ya see,
‘Cause they got no place to be,
That’s why I’m starting with me.
I’m starting with the man in the mirror.
I’m asking him to change his ways,
And no message could’ve been any clearer.
If you wanna make the world a better place,
Take a look at yourself and then make a change.
I’m starting with the man in the mirror.
I’m asking him to change his ways,
And no message could’ve been any clearer,
If you wanna make the world a better place,
Take a look at yourself and then make that change.
I’m starting with the man in the mirror.
I’m asking him to change his ways.
No message could’ve been any clearer.
If you wanna make the world a better place.
Take a look at yourself and then make the change.
You can’t, then you close your, close your, your mind.
With the man in the mirror, oh yeah.
I’m asking him to change his ways.
No message could’ve been any clearer,
If you wanna make the world a better place,
Take a look at yourself and then make a change,
Gonna feel real good now I’m gonna make a change,
It’s gonna feel real good, come on change, just lift yourself.
You know, you’ve got to stop it yourself.
I’ve got to make that change today.
You got to, you got to not let yourself brother you know.
I’ve got to get that man, that man.
You’ve got to, you’ve got to move.
Come on, come on, you got to stand up, stand up.
Stand up, stand up and lift yourself, now.
Gonna make that change come on.
You know it, You know it, You know it.
You know Change. Make that change.
END
