Song Lyrics - What You See In Me

How can it
How can it be that you love me?
With love that is so blind
How can you love what you think you found?
In me

How can I
How can I be what you say about me?
With the things that you believe
How can you say what you think you found?
In me

If only I could be
The man you think you see
If only I could be
The man you believe me to be

What you see in me
A strong man
Is not me
What you see in me
A perfect lover
Is not me
What you see in me
A dream come true
Is not me

How can I
How can I be the man that you dreamed of?
With a fantasy in the night
How can I be the dream that you think you found?
In me


If only I could be
The man you think you see
If only I could be
The man you believe me to be


How?
How?
Tell me
How?
How can I be what your eyes see?
It's not me

It's not me

If only I could be
The man you think you see
If only I could be
The man you believe
me to be

What do your eyes see
That make them believe?
I'm not the man they see
But if I could be
Then a man I would be
Yes
A man I would be
Yes
A man I would be
The man
You believe me to be

@acaetnna - thank you. This guy is the one who can't believe a girl is that much in love with him... he knows himself you know? Not that he's going to leave you but that he's going have a hard time riding that white horse.... it's a hard fall....

My friend, this is nice song with great lyric and all we need is just music. Tell the guy to be confident and that loves him all the way to the bottom of her heart. Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year.

.. a great song lyric I truly believe can always stand on its own outside the accompaniment of music - and you have done that here ....... we must put you alongside with the greats like Bernie Taupin, Ira Gerswhin and Tom Waits ......

@Epigramman - you flatter me sir... those are giants... I'm just a guy out here but I truly appreciate your comments. Bernie Taupin has always been an idol of sorts; I envied how he could just hand words to someone like Elton John and watch them blossom. What a dream that would be....

Hello there:

Well nobody is perfect, but at least to the person that you love and who loves you back... you are perfect, maybe not in so many ways. Perfection, like beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Excellent lyrics, now if you could only find someone to write the music for it, you'd be on your way.

@A. Villarasa - thank you for the flattering remarks. It's just about a guy who knows himself all too well and is showing his humble nature... now if I can just find someone like Elton John who makes magic out of lyrics I'll be on my way as you say...
