[Verse I]
                      Am     Em  F
It takes a lot to know a man
                   Am       Em  F
it takes a lot to understand
             Am      Em  F
the warrior, the sa------ge
              Am      Em  F
the little boy in rage
                       Am      Em  F
it takes a lot to know a woman
                   Am             Em  F
a lot to understand what’s humming
                 Am     Em  F
the honeybee, the sti------ng
               Am         Em  F
the little girl with wings

[Chorus]
                  Am
it takes a lot to give,
   F       E               Am
to ask for help, to be yourself
   F        E
to know and love what you…
                  Am     F         E
it takes a lot to be, to touch, to feel
           Am      F     E
the slow reveal of what another body needs…

a lot to know, to understand
            Am    Em   F
a father and a so------n
              Am      Em  F
the hunter and the gun
                   Am      Em  F
it takes a lot know a woman
                   Am            Em  F
a lot to comprehend what’s coming
              Am        Em  F
the mother and the chi-----ld

the muse and the beguile
