Time to be a Man

You’re wide awake tossing and you can’t even sleep, with all these secrets you keep. The way home is so steep. And then it’s midnight, and you feel so alone. You’ve got your radio on. You don’t know if you can face the dawn.

And it’s time to be a man. Tell me how does that go? What the hell are you waiting for? The whole world is at your door.

All these lies that you told to yourself. Like you don’t need no one else. Don’t put your pride upon the shelf.

And it’s time to be a man. Tell me how does that go? What the hell are you waiting for? The whole world is at your door.
It’s time to make a plan for the rest of your life. Just stop saying that you’re over it. You know that’s a lie.

But you were never alone.

When she gave you all that she had to give. You have to know where you live. Do you even know what you did?

And it’s time to be a man. Tell me how does that go? What the hell are you waiting for? The whole world is at your door.
It’s time to make a plan for the rest of your life. Just stop saying that you’re over it. You know that’s a lie.

You just have to let it go.
