What Does It Take to be a Man?

I had a subtle reminder from 1984 last night at the Boston Concert so I thought I’d share it with you:

Boston On Stage

What does it take to be a man?
What does it take to see
It’s all heart and soul
A gentle hand?
So easy to want and so hard to give
How can you be a man
‘Till you see beyond the life you live?
Oh, what does it take to be a man?
 
We can be blind, but a man tries to see
It takes tenderness
For a man to be what he can be
And what does it mean
If you’re weak or strong?
A gentle feelin’
can make it right or make it wrong
What does it take to be a man?
 
The will to give and not receive
The strength to say what you believe
The heart to feel what others feel inside
To see what they can see
 
A man is somethin’ that’s real
It’s not what you are
It’s what you can feel
It can’t be too late
To look through the hate and see
I know that’s what a man can be
 
Boston: To Be a Man
What great wholesome lyrics. . . where is our world going? Why do so few be men?
