How Long Can A Man Be Strong

I've been a restless
For a long, long time
Tryin' to find a home
For this heart of mine

The nights are lonely
And the days are long
It's hard to find a reason
To carry on

But all this searchin'
Is it ever gonna end?
Must I keep on losin'
Again and again?

Tell me, how long can a man be strong?
How long must he carry on?
Without the love of a woman
(Ooh)
To call his own
Tell me, how long can a man be strong?

It's on every man's mind
To find that special girl
Some of them get lucky
But I'm alone in this world

Still I know, she's out there somewhere
So I'm gonna keep on tryin'
Someday I'm gonna find her
It's just a matter of time

As long as I've been waiting
I know she's been waiting, too
Hold on little longer baby
I'm all the way to you

Tell me, how long can a man be strong?
How long must he carry on?
Without the love of a woman
(Ooh)
To call his own
Tell me, how long can a man be strong?
Won't you tell me, how long can a man be strong?

Now ever since this world began
(Ooh)
It takes a woman to make a man
(Ooh)
And I need someone
(Ooh)
Don't you know I need someone, yea?
(Aaa)
Ohh

We were all this searchin'
Is it, is it ever gonna end?
Must I keep on losin'
Again and again and again?

Tell me, how long can a man be strong?
How long must he carry on?
Without the love of a woman
(Ooh)
To call his own
Tell me, how long can a man be strong?
Yea
Ohh, keep on waiting
Ohh, I'm alone
Yea
Yea
