I had a subtle reminder from 1984 last night at the Boston Concert so I thought I’d share it with you:
What does it take to be a man?What does it take to seeIt’s all heart and soulA gentle hand?So easy to want and so hard to giveHow can you be a man‘Till you see beyond the life you live?Oh, what does it take to be a man?We can be blind, but a man tries to seeIt takes tendernessFor a man to be what he can beAnd what does it meanIf you’re weak or strong?A gentle feelin’can make it right or make it wrongWhat does it take to be a man?The will to give and not receiveThe strength to say what you believeThe heart to feel what others feel insideTo see what they can seeA man is somethin’ that’s realIt’s not what you areIt’s what you can feelIt can’t be too lateTo look through the hate and seeI know that’s what a man can beBoston: To Be a Man
What great wholesome lyrics. . . where is our world going? Why do so few be men?
