I'm gonna make a change
It's gonna feel real good
Gonna make it right
As I, turn up the collar on
This wind is blowing my mind
With not enough to eat
Pretending not to see their needs
A summer disregard, a broken bottle top
They follow each other on the wind ya' know
That's why I want you to know
I'm starting with the man in the mirror
And no message could have been any clearer
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love
That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan

And a washed-out dream
'Cause they got no place to be

I'm asking him to change his ways
If you want to make the world a better place

I'm asking him to change his ways
If you want to make the world a better place
Change!
I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
No message could have been any clearer
Take a look at yourself and then make the change)
You can't close your, your mind!
(Then you close your, mind!)
With the man in the mirror
That man, that man, that man
(Better change!)
If you want to make the world a better place


It's gonna feel real good!
(Change)
You know
Yourself!
I've got to make that change, today!
(Man in the mirror)
You got to not let yourself
Hoo!
You know, I've got to get
(Man in the mirror)
Chime on!
Stand up! Stand up! Stand up!
Stand up and lift yourself, now!
You know it!
You know it!
(Change)
