"Like I Am" as written by Dan Earnest Orton and Joe Don Rooney....
Lying here with you
I watch you while you sleep
The dawn is closing in
With every breath you breathe

I can feel the change
The change you've made in me
But will I ever see
All the things you see in me

When you say that I'm one of a kind
Baby, I don't see it but you believe
That I'm so strong and true, I promise you
I'll try to be that kind of man
Because you love me like I am

When it comes to love
I may not know the rules
But there's one thing I know
My heart belongs to you, just you

When you say that I'm one of a kind
Baby, I don't see it but you believe
That I'm so strong and true, I promise you
I'll try to be that kind of man
Because you love me like I am

You show me you love me
With a fire that burns deep inside

When you say that I'm one of a kind
Baby, I don't see it but you believe
That I'm so strong and true, I promise you
I'll try to be that kind of man
Because you love me like I am

When you say that I'm one of a kind
Baby, I don't see it but you believe
That I'm so strong and true, I promise you
I'll try to be that kind of man
Because you love me like I am

I am
I'll never understand
I don't think I'll ever understand
Why you love me
Why you love me just like I am

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. The guy in this song is so in love with this girl, he wants to be his very best for her. "I'll try to be that kind of man, because you love me like I am". The girl views him as this wonderful person, whether he thinks of himself in that way or not, he is promising her he will live up to what she thinks of him.

    This song is so tender in its message. I love songs when the guy is opening up to the girl in such a way. Mmm. :)

    My InterpretationThe girl sees the singer as a good, special guy and the singer doesn't think he's that great but he loves the girl so he's happy she sees good in him and that he doesn't have to be something he's not for her , she loves him like he is.
