"The Right Man" as written by Christina Aguilera and Linda Perry....
So many years have gone by
Always strong, tried not to cry
Never felt like I needed any man
To comfort me in life
But I'm all made up today
A veil upon my face
But no father stands beside me
To give this bride away

Well, I'm standing in the chapel
Wearing my white dress
I have waited for this moment
With tears of happiness
Here I leave behind my past
By taking the chance
I've finally found the right man

Thoughts racing fast through my mind
As I'm gazing down the aisle
That my future will mend the memories
Torn between father and child

My emotions overload
'Cause there is no hand to hold
There's no shoulder here to lean on
I'm walking all on my own

Here I go

Now I'm standing at four corners
To have and to hold
Now, my love, you stand beside me
To walk life's winding road
And I owe it all to you
For taking that chance
You've shown me there's a right man
'Cause I never knew the right man

Well, I'm standing in the chapel
Ready to confess
That I've waited for this moment
With tears of happiness
Now I leave behind my past
By taking the chance
Whoa

Well, I'm standing at four corners
To have and to hold
Now, my love, you stand beside me
To walk life's winding road
And I owe it all to you
For taking the chance

And one day, my little girl
Will reach out her hand
She'll know I found the right man

    General CommentI love this song. I can picture this in a movie, or a video. This would be an amazing video.
    The music itself is amazing, plus the lyrics and how she sings it. Sometimes the tempo quickens and it just makes you feel like you're right there living the song.

    General Comment"i owe it all to you for taking a chance"

    i love this song. i have major issues with men because all of the men that were supposed to be important figures in my life have all let me down or hurt me in some way. and i hope that someday when i meet 'the one' he'll understand that he may have to try a little harder to make me see that he's real. and i'll be so grateful for it in the long run:)

    General Commentthis song is song really powerful, which gets the point across that much more. I just love this song, the meaning is pretty obvious. She talks of how she never needed a man to make her happy, but she's finally found "the right man", and she wants to need him, she wants him to make her happy. I double love this song!

    General Commentthis is one of the best songs i've heard. no joke. it's awesome. i was listening to it on media player with the visuals on random and it was insane you could picture the video clip. when it said "now im standing at four corners to have and hold
    now my love you stand beside me to walk lifes winding road" the picture sort of went to the side and it looked like it was in a picture frame and everything that happened just seemed to be exactly what the words were saying . if anyone wants to try it
    windows media player visualisation "battery:randomisation"

    General Commentthis song really is amazing. I think her voice is perfect, the lyrics are perfect, the music is perfect. its all perfect :P yeah like people have said up above, i can see this in a video clip. but i can also see it in a movie, like 'roxanne' from Moulin Rouge. For some reason, it just has the same like, emotion, urgency n stuff. its truly a very powerful song. it's amazing how christina always manages to have one song that is just so emotional on ever one of her albums. She's a very talented girl

    General Commentthis song is amazing. It obviously is about how her father gave her a distorted look upon men; but now she has finally found the "right man". The last line, about how her little girl will know she found the right man, tears me apart. I also have father issues and hope that I too find the right man so my little girl won't have to feel how I do.
