  • I'm gonna make a change
    For once in my life
    It's gonna feel real good
    Gonna make a difference
    Gonna make it right

    As I, turn up the collar on
    My favorite winter coat
    This wind is blowing my mind
    I see the kids in the streets
    With not enough to eat
    Who am I to be blind?
    Pretending not to see their needs

    A summer disregard, a broken bottle top
    And a one man 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 want to make the world a better place
    Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

    I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love
    It's time that I realize
    That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
    Could it be really me, pretending that they're not alone?

    A willow deeply scarred, somebody's broken heart
    And a washed-out dream
    They follow the pattern of the wind ya' see
    'Cause they got no place to be
    That's why I'm starting with me

    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 want to 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 want to make the world a better place
    Take a look at yourself and then make that
    Change!

    I'm starting with the man in the mirror
    (Oh yeah!)
    I'm asking him to change his ways
    (Better change!)
    No message could have been any clearer
    If you want to make the world a better place
    Take a look at yourself and then make the change)
    You gotta get it right, while you got the time
    You can't close your, your mind!

    (Then you close your, mind!)
    That man, that man, that man, that man
    With the man in the mirror
    (Man in the mirror, oh yeah!)
    That man, that man, that man
    I'm asking him to change his ways
    (Better change!)
    No message could have been any clearer
    If you want to make the world a better place
    Take a look at yourself and then make the change

    Oh no, no no

    I'm gonna make a change
    It's gonna feel real good!
    Chime on!
    (Change)
    Just lift yourself
    You know
    You've got to stop it
    Yourself!
    (Yeah! Make that change!)
    I've got to make that change, today!
    Hoo!
    (Man in the mirror)
    You got to
    You got to not let yourself
    Brother
    Hoo!
    (Yeah! Make that change!)
    You know, I've got to get
    That man, that man
    (Man in the mirror)
    You've got to move! Chime on!
    Chime on!
    You got to
    Stand up! Stand up! Stand up!
    (Yeah! Make that change)
    Stand up and lift yourself, now!
    (Man in the mirror)
    You know it!
    You know it!
    You know it!
    You know it
    (Change)
    Make that change
