HEART OF A MAN – BY CRAIG SONNENFELD – COPYRIGHT 2007

WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE NIGHT
AND IT DRAPES YOUR BED IN BLACK,
CATCH YOUR REFLECTION IN THE MIRROR,
SEE THE FACE THAT’S STARING BACK,
AND YOU ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION,
FIND THE ANSWER IF YOU CAN,
DOES ANYBODY EVER KNOW
WHAT’S IN THE HEART OF A MAN.

NOW, I HAVE AN OLD ACQUAINTANCE,
HE HAS A HEART THAT’S MADE OF GOLD,
NEW YORK CITY LAST DECEMBER,
AND WE WERE WALKIN’ IN THE COLD,
HE TOOK OFF HIS WINTER GLOVES
AND PUT THEM ON A BEGGAR’S HANDS,
NOW I CAN SAY THAT I KNOW SOMEONE
WHO HAS THE HEART OF A MAN.

DOES ANYBODY EVER KNOW,
DOES ANYBODY EVER CARE,
WILL YOU LET YOUR SPIRIT SHOW,
LAY YOUR TRUE EMOTIONS BARE,
AND WHEN YOU ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION,
FIND THE ANSWER IF YOU CAN,
DOES ANYBODY EVER KNOW
WHAT’S IN THE HEART OF A MAN.

FROM MY SOLITARY TOWER
I LOOK DOWN AT THE ABYSS,
AND I CAN SEE THIS WORLD IS SUFFERING,
SO MANY WAYS I CANNOT LIST,
I DON’T KNOW IF THERE’S A PURPOSE,
AND I DON’T KNOW IF THERE’S A PLAN,
I JUST KNOW WE NEED COMPASSION
IN THE HEART OF EVERY MAN.

DOES ANYBODY EVER KNOW,
DOES ANYBODY EVER CARE,
WILL YOU LET YOUR SPIRIT SHOW,
LAY YOUR TRUE EMOTIONS BARE,
AND WHEN YOU ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION,
FIND THE ANSWER IF YOU CAN,
DOES ANYBODY EVER KNOW
WHAT’S IN THE HEART OF A MAN.
