What Makes A Man is the single off of Asher Brown's upcoming album, Pitchforks.


Twenty years and change
And I am learning still
How to earn myself a name
Worth passing down
My path is un-mapped
I'm a self-made man
And I'm rich with everybody's two cents
About the way I am

I know love has a cost
And it's the only thing I've got

When the day is done
When the last stone has been thrown
When I'm on my knees
I'll keep my head up
My heart open
My soul soft
That's what makes a man

Twenty years from now
I will love her still
Make good on every vow
Make good love
Stand before her and show her how I bleed
Stand beside her for every sad and sweet she sings

I know love has a cost
And it's the only thing we've got

I will raise my son
To be gentle and brave
I will raise my daughter
Just the same

Teach them love has a cost
But it's the only thing we've got


released August 15, 2016
Recorded at Flat Black Studios
