  1. Just the way I am

From the recording Just the way I am

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
