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,
My 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'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,
You gotta get it right, while you got the time,
'Cause when you close your heart,
(You can't close your, your mind),
Then you close your mind.

(That man, that man, that man),
(That man, that man, that man),
(With the man in the mirror, oh yeah),
(That man you know, that man you know),
(That man you know, that man you know),
I'm asking him to change his ways,
(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.

(Stand up, stand up, stand up),
Make that change,
Stand up and lift yourself, now,
(Man in the mirror),
Make that change,
(Gonna make that change, sure mon),
(Man in the mirror),
You know it, you know it, you know it, you know,,
(Change),
Make that change.

    If you want soemthing to change you have to do it yourself. You are the only one who knows how you think the world needs to be changed, and no one else will listen to you if you are not a good example.
