NEVER TOO LATE

Here’s to you young men, you older men too
And here’s to the ones, the ones in-between
Here’s to the boys learning how to be men
How to behave, behave and be seen.

You’ve got to be strong
You’ve got to be cool
Afraid you might look like,
You look like a fool

But it’s never too late, no it’s never too late
To engage with your heart

Here’s to you lovers, your fighters, you punks,
To the ones who play soft and the ones who play rough
To the rich guys, the poor guys, the sober and drunk
All trying to be pretend that they’re strong and tough

Swagger and hide
So no-one gets near
To see you alone,
Alone with your fear

But it’s never too late, no it’s never too late
To engage with your heart
To engage with your heart

So, here’s some advice you can take it for free
To cover your heart, that’s a bad place to be,
If you let me see you then I’ll let you see me,
Engaging from the heart

If you want to live well, if you want to live whole,
To be a real man is your focus, your goal,
You’d better reach out from the place you call soul
And engage me with your heart

You’ve got to be strong
You’ve got to be cool
Afraid you might look like,
You look like a fool

But it’s never too late, no it’s never too late
To engage from your heart
To engage from your heart
Never too late
