When I was a child
I thought as a child
I spoke as a child
I didn't know better, better

But now I'm a man
I look like a man
Old as a man
And I should know better, better

Got my head in the sky
And my mind knows what it wants
But my body just drags me down

And my world's something you can't see
But it's still very real to me
You can find it in the hole where I keep my soul

There it is, way down inside me
There's a real man, a real man
Forget about my body and be a real man

I see with my heart
Hear with my heart
I feel with my heart
Sometimes it works better, better

And some so called friends put me down
And they pity me for trying
Bad emotions push me around

But the vision shines on and on
It will shine when we all are gone
And I'd like to add a little sparkle while I'm here

Light it up, way down inside me
There's a real man, a real man
Forget about bad feelings and be a real man

Some men's world is only hate and money
'Fraid of everything and they laugh at nothing
And they all believe to criticize

You can laugh at me now
But the time comes to everybody
Then you must decide

When that day finally comes along
You might wish you'd been a little more strong
Then you'll wake up in the morning
Cryin', "Oh my God"

There it is, way down inside me
It's a real man, a real man
Got to grow up sometime
Be a real man, real man
Suffer them slings and arrows

Be a real man, now be a real man
Don't sell yourself for nothing
Be a real man, be a real man

Don't take no crap from no one
Be a real man, be a real man
Get your trip together
Be a real man, be a real man
