…pretending not to see their needs
a summer’s disregard, a broken bottle top and a one man’s soul
they follow the pattern of the wind ya’ know
’cause they got nowhere to go
that’s why i want you to know

i’m starting with the man in the mirror
i’m asking him to change his ways
and no message could have been any clearer
if you wanna make the world a better place
take a look at yourself, and then make a change

i’ve been a victim of a selfish kind of love
it’s time that i realize
that there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
could it be really me, pretending that they’re not alone?

a willow deeply scarred somebody’s broken heart
and a washed-out dream
they follow the pattern of the wind, ya’ see
’cause they got no place to be
that’s why i’m starting with me

if you wanna make the world a better place
take a look at yourself, and then make a change
you gotta get it right, while you got the time
’cause when you close your heart
you can’t close your mind

if you wanna make the world a better place
take a look at yourself, and then make that change
