Under the endless sky
Beneath a million stars
Within the course of a lifetime
How very young we are

As I stumble on this journey
Along the road to what is real
I'm not made of steel
I'm not made of steel

With all the lessons of my learning
And the strength that I possess
Still there are mountains I wish I was moving
That take much more than my best

There are plans beyond my power
There are dreams beyond my reach

Oh, these eyes deceive the words I speak
Don't tell the story inside
So don't believe the face you see
It's only the face of my pride

[Chorus]
I'm not made of steel
I'm not made of stone
I can't be anything more than I'm made of
Move heaven and earth on my own

I'm only a man
Flesh and blood is all I am
You think I can carry the world on my shoulders
That don't mean that I can
I can bend, I can break, I can feel
I'm not made of steel

They teach you well to wear your armor
But what you've learned is just a lie
And there's a price to be paid for denying
With every tear you never cry
Don't ever show, don't let them know
The heart you never reveal
Don't ask me why, don't make me hide
The pain you don't think I can feel

[Chorus]

I'm only a man
Flesh and blood is all I am
You think I can carry the world on my shoulders
That don't mean that I can
I can bend, I can break, I can feel
I'm not made of steel

Oh, don't believe the face you see
It's only the face of my, only the face of my pride

[Chorus]

I'm only a man
Flesh and blood is all I am
You think I can carry the world on my shoulders
That don't mean that I can
I'm not made of steel
I'm not made of stone
I'm not made of steel
I'm not made of stone
