Song Lyrics

Tough, you think you`ve got the stuff

You`re telling me and anyone

You`re hard enough

You don`t have to put up a fight

You don`t have to always be right

Let me take some of the punches

For you tonight

Listen to me now

I need to let you know

You don`t have to go in alone

And it`s you when I look in the mirror

And it`s you when I don`t pick up the phone

Sometimes you can`t make it on your own

We fight all the time

You and I... that`s alright

We`re the same soul

I don`t need... I don`t need to hear you say

That if we weren`t so alike

You`d like me a whole lot more

Listen to me now

I need to let you know

You don`t have to go it alone

And it`s you when I look in the mirror

And it`s you when I don`t pick up the phone

Sometimes you can`t make it on your own

(This is it)

I know that we don`t talk

I`m sick of it all

Can, you, hear, me, when, I, sing

You`re the reason I sing

You`re the reason why the opera is in me

Well hey now, still gotta let ya know

A house doesn`t make a home

Don`t leave me here alone

And it`s you when I look in the mirror

And it`s you that makes it hard to let go

Sometimes you can`t make it on your own

Sometimes you can`t make it

Best you can do is to fake it

Sometimes you can`t make it on your own
