(gary burr/robin lerner/franne golde)

I was supposed to be the rock that you could stand on
Stronger than an old oak tree
But all you ever wanted was the one thing
I never let you see -
The tender side of me
I tried to be a mountain, solid and strong
All it took was your leaving to know I was wrong

A man aint made of stone
A man aint made of steel
The way I feel right now
I thought I'd never feel
Sometimes all it takes
Is facing the night alone
And that's when you know
A man aint made of stone

In this world of mine
There was no room for weakness
I covered every crack in the wall
But there aint no way that I can keep this secret
Cos when you go like jerico I fall
You thought I wouldn't shatter
Would I even care?
But there's more to what Im made of
Than this broken heart can bare

A man aint made of stone
A man aint made of steel
The way I feel right now
I thought I'd never feel
Sometimes all it takes
Is facing the night alone
And that's when you know
A man aint made of stone

Sometimes all it takes
Is facing the night alone
And that's when you know
A man aint made of stone

That's when you know
A man aint made of stone
