The Woman Makes The Man Lyrics

by Lady Antebellum

Im all busted aces and empty pockets
An arrow shot straight through a locket
In this cheap hotel room on this lonesome highway
Everything I own in this tattered old suitcase
But you know I havent always been this way

(Chorus)
I used to be a hero, and a lover
She brought out the best in me
But now Im just lonesome with a broken heart
Half the man I used to be
It took losing her, for me to finally understand
That the woman really makes the man

She was like an angel
Sweet as Tubelo Honey
Every move she made was right on the money
But I took her for granted
Cause I thought I always hold her
And she bought into everyone line that I sold her
Oh but I threw it all away
Oh why did I throw it all away?

I used to be a hero, and a lover
She brought out the best in me
But now Im just lonesome with a broken heart
Half the man I used to be
It took losing her for me to finally understand
That the woman really makes the man

Well this face staring back at me in this mirror
Aint the face I wanna see
Gotta figure out how to get back
To who I used to be
Oh yeah, oh

I used to be a hero, and a lover
She brought out the best in me
But now Im just lonesome with a broken heart
Half the man I used to be
It took losing her for me, to finally understand
That the woman really makes the man
Yes A woman really makes a man
