a man ain’t made of stone lyrics – randy travis

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 ain’t made of stone
a man ain’t 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 ain’t made of stone

in this world of mine there was no room for weakness
i covered every crack in the wall
but there ain’t no way that i can keep this secret
’cause when you go like jericho i fall
you thought i wouldn’t shatter
would i even care?
but there’s more to what i’m made of
than this broken heart can bare

a man ain’t made of stone
a man ain’t 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 ain’t made of stone

sometimes all it takes
is facing the night alone
and that’s when you know
a man ain’t made of stone
that’s when you know
a man ain’t made of stone
