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 favorite winter coat

This wind is 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 have been any clearer

If you 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

That 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 hear

tAnd 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(Ooh!)

I'm asking him to change his ways(Ooh!)

And no message could have been any clearer

If you wanna make the world a better place

Take a look at yourself and then make a change
