about

The first place many people hear this song is in a quiet, intimate house concert. This Bonus Track is meant to reprise that experience.

lyrics

you’re sittin’ here beside me, in silence on this swing
same way that you used to back when you were only ten
now your tears are slowly falling and I know he broke your heart
my words, they don’t come easy… but here’s a start…

tell me
what makes a man, in your eyes?
you’re headed for a life that’s full of lies
forget the money and the house up on the hill
forget the fast cars; they won’t drive away the chill
look into his heart far as you can
that’s where you’ll find what makes a man

you took your childhood fantasies and packed them all away
your life was so much simpler back when I was not so gray
i could bandage up your knees and dry your tears before they’d start
but I can’t’ stop the tick of time, and I can’t’ fix your heart

tell me
what makes a man, in your eyes?
you’re headed for a life that’s full of lies
forget the money and the house up on the hill
forget the fast cars; they won’t drive away the chill
look into his heart far as you can
that’s where you’ll find what makes a man

when he offers you the stars remember, they’re not his to sell
listen to my words and darling… ask yourself…

what makes a man, in your eyes?
you’re headed for a life that’s full of lies
forget the money and the house up on the hill
forget the fast cars; they won’t drive away the chill
look into his heart far as you can
that’s where you’ll find what makes a man

that’s where you’ll find… what makes a man
