"Walk Like A Man" as written by and Tom Douglas....
Say goodbye to Old Man Winter
Say hello to sweet springtime
'Cause I'm coming out of hiding
I'm gonna get it right this time

After so long being frozen
It took a while to thaw me out
I spent too long not knowing
What love's supposed to be about

Now I'm finding out

[Chorus:]
It's a lot like coming home
From a long time walking out in the snow
Then I looked at you and knew I never knew nothing
And it broke this heart of stone
It's a lot like coming home

Like a bird out on the harbor
That's been battered by the sea
I've been through some stormy weather
But you shine a light for me
Girl, you set me free

[Chorus]

Yeah

Girl, I looked at you and knew I never knew nothing
And it broke this heart of stone
It's a lot like coming home
Coming home
Feels like I'm coming home, coming home, coming home
Coming home, coming home, coming home, coming home

Oh baby, I'm coming home, coming home, coming home
Coming home, coming home, coming home, coming home

I'm coming home

(Coming home, coming home, coming home, coming home
Coming home, coming home)

(Coming home, coming home, coming home, coming home
Coming home, coming home)

(Coming home, coming home, coming home, coming home
Coming home, coming home)

    General CommentThis song I think is about a boy who's parents got divorced and his mom told him that he could do the same thing to his family and just to resist temptations and find a girl he truely loves and don't hurt her like his dad hurt her and his family.

    General CommentThis song is about a boy who has an alcoholic father who beats his mom. His dad says hes gonna stop drinkin but the boy knows hes heard it millions of times before and he's not goin to. And his mom tells him all the time not to let yourself grow up to be like your daddy because behavior like that is actually hereditary and not to give into the temptation and when he falls in love with a girl to treat her better than his daddy treated his mama

    General CommentIt's also about a man being held down by his past, thinking he can't be anything more than what his father is or what he has been told that he is, by Satan or other people. He doesn't feel he can break free from his past:

    "When the sins of the father
    Are the sins of the son
    All you do is crawl when you wanna run"

    "Your daddy's demons are calling your name
    Don't you listen to 'em cause they got no claim"

    God is reaching out to him though:

    "Come on, stand up straight. I'm proud of you. Take my hand. I know you can walk like a man"
