It Takes a Lot to Know a Man Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
It takes a lot to know a man
It takes a lot to understand
The warrior, the sage
The little boy enraged
Verse 2
It takes a lot to know a woman
A lot to understand what's humming
The honeybee, the sting
The little girl with wings
Verse 3
It takes a lot to give, to ask for help
To be yourself, to know and love what you live with
It takes a lot to breathe, to touch, to feel
The slow reveal of what another body needs
Verse 4
It takes a lot to know a man
A lot to know, to understand
The father and the son
The hunter and the gun
Verse 5
It takes a lot know a woman
A lot to comprehend what's coming
The mother and the child
The muse and the beguiled
Verse 6
It takes a lot to give, to ask for help
To be yourself, to know and love what you live with
It takes a lot to breathe, to touch, to feel
The slow reveal of what another body needs
Verse 7
It takes a lot to give, to ask for help
To be yourself, to know and love what you live with
It takes a lot to breathe, to touch, to feel
The slow reveal of what another body needs
Verse 8
It takes a lot to live, to ask for help
To be yourself, to know and love what you live with
It takes a lot to breathe, to touch, to feel
The slow reveal of what another body needs
Verse 9
What are you so afraid to lose?
What is it you're thinking that will happen if you do?
What are you so afraid to lose? (You wrote me to tell me you're nervous and you're sorry)
What is it you're thinking that will happen if you do? (Crying like a baby saying "this thing is killing me")
What is it you're so afraid to lose? (You wrote me to tell me you're nervous and you're sorry)
What is it you're thinking that will happen if you do? (Crying like a baby saying "this thing is killing me")
