ELTON JOHN - The Measure Of A Man Lyrics

Written by alan menkenAvailable on the soundtrack rocky vThese battered hand are all you ownThis broken heart has turned to stoneGo hang your glory on the wallThere comes a time when castles fallAnd all that's left is shifting in the sandYou're out of time, you're out of placeLook at your faceThat's the measure of a manThis coat that fits you like a gloveThese dirty streets you learned to loveSo welcome back my long lost friendYou've been to hell and back againGod alone knows how you crossed that spanBack on the beat, back to the startTrust in your heartThat's the measure of a manIt's the fire in the eyes, the lines on the handIt's the things you understandPermanent ties from which you once ranThat's the measure of a manYou've come full cirlce, now you're homeWithout the gold, without the chromeAnd this is where you've always beenYou had to lose so you could winAnd rise above your troubles while you canNow you can love, now you can loseNow you can chooseThat's the measure of a man
