What makes a man
Believe in a brighter day
When his whole world is fallin' apart
All promise is fading away
What does it take,
To turn his heart to stone
When he's got more than his share of riches
More than one life can hold

Sometimes it takes
More than we've got it seems
Something so close, so near
Even a blind man sees

If it takes a hand strong and mighty
To spin this world around
It takes the power of a woman's sweet love
To make a man hold on

What makes a man
Hang his hope on someone
To bring the light out of darkness
Makes him believe a change is gonna come

Something inside that just won't let go
Something so simple, so sweet,
Even a fool would know

If it takes a hand strong and mighty
To spin this world around
It takes the power of a woman's sweet love

To bring joy out of pain
To let sunshine through rain
To bring hope back to the heart
To bring together what's fallin' apart

She's got the kind of kisses
To make a weak man strong
She's got the kind of love
To make a good man go wrong
She's got what it takes
