When You Can't Be

Jack's Song

Two broken wings,
A broken heart,
These broken things,
Will tear you apart,
But you're stronger,
Than you think you know,
You hold on tighter,
When push comes to shove,

Chorus
You'll be a man,
When you can't be,
You can't be a rock,
Because you're holding on,
But you'll heal your wounds,
And others', too,
You'll be a man,
When you can't be,

You have a mind,
A wonderful process,
But you're lost,
Despite the knowledge you possess,
But you're seeing clearly,
For the first time in a while,
And don't be afraid,
To now and then show a smile,

Chorus
You'll be a man,
When you can't be,
You can't be a rock,
Because you're holding on,
But you'll heal your wounds,
And others', too,
You'll be a man,

When you can't be,

key up
You'll be a man,
When you can't be,
You'll be a rock,
And you're still holding on,
But you'll heal your wounds,
And others', too,
You'll be a man,
When you can't be,

short piano solo
I used to think,
You were a man with no reasons,
Helping others,
When you needed healing,
I truly believe,
You are a man to believe in,
Guiding others,
To the light we aren't seeing,

Chorus
You'll be a man,
When you can't be,
You can't be a rock,
Because you're holding on,
But you'll heal your wounds,
And others', too,
You'll be a man,
When you can't be...
