in the mirror

Gotta make a change
For once in my life
It’s gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right

As I turned up the collar on, a favorite winter coat
This wind is blowin’ my mind
I see the kids in the street, with not enough to eat
Who am I to be blind, pretending not to see their needs?

A summer’s disregard, a broken bottle top
And a one man’s soul, they follow each other
On the wind ya’ know, ’cause they got nowhere to go
That’s why I want you to know

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change

I’ve been a victim of, a selfish kinda love
It’s time that I realize, there are some with no home
Not a nickel to loan
Could it be really pretending that they’re not alone

A willow deeply scarred, somebody’s broken heart
And a washed out dream, they follow the pattern of the wind ya’ see
‘Cause they got no place to be
That’s why I’m starting with me

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways, yeah
No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make the change
You gotta get it right, while you got the time
‘Cause when you close your heart
Then you close your mind

No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself then make that change

Oh no, I’m gonna make a change
It’s gonna feel real good
Just lift yourself
You know, you got to stop it yourself
Make that change
You got to, you got to not let yourself, brother oh
You know that
You got, you got to move
Come on, come on
You got to
Make that change
You know it, you know it, you know it, you know
Make that change
