"Be A Man" as written by Claus Norreen, Soren Rasted and Lene Crawford Nystrom....
The world is quiet,
Like there's no one around,
But I feel you beside me.

I know the secrets,
You keep locked away inside,
Don't understand, why you are fighting.

I know, she must be special,
This new girl by your side,
I seek for answers, when I look into your eyes,

[Chorus]

And he turns, so I can't, but I will be strong.
For once in your life, be a man,
Just tell me the words, 'cause I know
That you can,
Don't leave me with scars,
That no one can heal.
For once in your life, be a man.

You made me love you,
Love you right from the start.
You're controlling my heart, babe.

Don't pack your bags yet.
Give me time to say goodbye.
(Say goodbye)
Just don't leave me wounded.

No, I just hope you will regret the things you do
Come back to me,
'Cause our love is the real thing.

[Chorus]

I knew that I,

I fought to keep our love strong.
If you leave me now,
You come running back for more, babe.
And I hope for, and I wish for,

And I pray, that the words from your mouth can,
Eventually make you a man.
For once in your life,
Be a man.

When everything stops.
For a minute in your life,
I'll hope that,
For once in your life, be a man

Be a man.
Just tell me the words, 'cause I know that you can,
Don't leave me with scars,
That no one can heal.

For once in your life, be a man.
Be a man.
Tell me the words.
Once in your life.

Be a man.
Tell me the words.

    General CommentI really love this song, although its quite painful for me to listen to. This was the song i gave my bf (now ex) to listen to b4 breaking up wit him. I sums it all up very nicely. Except for the line "she must be special, this new girl by ur side", I totally felt like i wrote the song especially for him. Its too perfect... The song basically means that the you hope that the person you love, will eventually understand how much you care for them and confess their love and not leave you for other things in life.

    General Commentthis song describes EXACTLY how i felt they day my boyfriend left me. he did leave me for another girl, and i always told him thereafter that i hope for only the best for them, but that i will miss him always, and that he needs to start stepping up and being a man, and he has to fix that which he has broken.. he didnt do it for me. thats what i feel this song is about, trying to tell him that everything you do has consequences, and you need to step up and take responsibility for what you do to people
    in writing this song, she was clearly hurt, and in listening to it, it helped me to realize how pathetic he really was.
