Lyrics

I'm gonna make a change for once in my life It's gonna feel real good Gonna make a difference Gonna make it right As I turn up the collar on my favorite winter coat This wind is blowing my mind I see the kids in the street Without enough to eat Who am I to be blind? Pretending not to see their need 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 then make a change

Na, na, na, na Na, na, na, na I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love It's time that I realize There are some with no home Not a nickel to loan Could it be really me pretending that they're not alone? A willow deeply scarred Somebody's broken heart And a washed-out dream (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 (ooh) I'm asking him to change his ways (ooh) And no message could have been any clearer If you wanna make the world a better place Take a look at yourself then make a change I'm starting with the man in the mirror (ooh) I'm asking him to change his ways (ooh) And 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 I'm starting with the man in the mirror (oh yeah) I'm asking him to change his ways (Better change) No message could have been any clearer If you wanna make the world a better place Take a look at yourself then make the change You gotta get it right while you got the time 'Cause when you close your heart Then you close, close your mind (That man, that man, that man) I'm starting with the man in the mirror (oh yeah) (That man, that man, that man) I'm asking him to change his ways (Better change) 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 Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Na na na, na na na Na na, na nah Oh no, no no I'm gonna make a change It's gonna feel real good Come on! (Change) Just lift yourself You know You've got to stop it Yourself (You gotta make that change) I've got to make that change today Hoo! (Man in the mirror) You got to You got to not let yourself... Brother Hoo! You know (Make that change) I've got to get that man, that man (Man in the mirror) You've got to You've got to move! Come on! Come on! You got to Stand up! Stand up! Stand up! Stand up and lift yourself, now (Man in the mirror) Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Aaow! Gonna make that change Come on! (Man in the mirror) You know it! You know it! You know it! You know (change) Make that change
