man enough to care lyrics – 7 seconds

daddy always told you, do it like a man, never get too friendly,
ome won’t understand, friends have got you in on all those “hard” things that they’ve planned,
all your life they told you, never shed a tear, ’cause boys don’t crave affection,
boys ain’t got no fear,
but did they ever show you how to shut those feelings on then off again

[chorus]
and now you gotta hide yourself, hide yourself away,
show you care and you might show the world that you’re only gay,
crying is for babies, for boys is it a sin,

to be a caring, sharing, loving, human one

handshake show you’re friendly, but don’t get caught,
you gotta fight to prove you’re not afraid, f**k just to prove you’re not,
and all your life you play this game and it goes on and on and on and on,
now you’ve grown into a man, proud as h*ll to be,
it’s now your turn to raise a son, don’t let him be one,
and you can teach him all the things you were taught yourself
