Story

I WROTE THIS SONG AFTER MY WIFE AND I HAD HAD A DISAGREEMENT AND I WAS FEELING PARTICULARLY UNACCEPTED. OBVIOUSLY THIS REPRESENTS MY OWN AND EVERYONE'S DESIRES TO BE LOVED JUST THE WAY WE ARE AND NOT BE JUDGED BY SOMEONES ELSE'S STANDARDS.

Lyrics

JUST THE WAY I AM

verse

YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME WHEN YOU WANT TO

YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME WHEN IT’S EASY TO DO

BUT WHAT IF I’M NOT THE MAN IN YOUR PICTURE

THE MAN YOU ALWAYS IMAGINED ME TO BE

WHAT IF I’M JUST AN ORDINARY GUY

WOULD YOU LOVE ME ANYWAY

 

 chorus                                                        

WHAT IF I’M JUST LIKE ANY OTHER MAN

 FULL OF ANGER, LOVE AND DESIRE

 WHAT IF I’M JUST LIKE EVERYMAN

 WOULD YOU LOVE ME JUST THE WAY I AM

 

 

verse                                                                         

IF I TOLD YOU A SECRET

WOULD YOU LISTEN VERY CLOSE

I WOULDN’T MENTION THIS TO EVERYONE

AND IN FACT I’M JUST A LITTLE SCARED

CAUSE I’VE TRIED TO BE THE MAN YOU WANT

BUT THE ONLY THING THAT I CAN BE IS ME

 

chorus

WHAT IF I’M JUST LIKE ANY OTHER MAN

FULL OF ANGER, LOVE AND DESIRE

WHAT IF I’M JUST LIKE EVERYMAN

WOULD YOU LOVE ME JUST THE WAY I AM

 

end

WHAT IF I’M JUST LIKE EVERYMAN

WHAT IF I’M JUST LIKE E E VERYMAN

WOULD YOU LOVE ME JUST THE WA AY I AM

WOULD YOU LOVE ME JUST THE WAY I AM

WOULD YOU LOVE ME JUST THE WAY I AM

WOULD YOU LOVE ME JUST THE WAY I AM

                                               

WOULD YOU LOVE ME JUST THE WAY I AM
