"I'll Still Be Me" as written by Tamara Janine Hyler and Rachel Lee Thibodeau....
Woke up in the middle of the night and saw you sleepin'
I was hopin' you were dreamin' about me
Kissed your cheek, and said, 'I love you'
You reached for me and then you mumbled
'I love you too; is everything okay?'

I said, 'I'm fine, baby, go back to sleep
I've just been thinkin' life is changin' 'round us
And I hope you believe...

I'll still be me
Just a normal girl from small-town nowhere
I'll still hold your hand and wear this ring
I'll still be me
If you can count on one thing, I'll be here
The same girl that you've known for centuries
I'll still be me.'

We said we wanted all of this
We made the plans together
And promised that we'd never forget
Drinkin' apple wine in our first kitchen
Throwin' pennies in the well and wishin'
We'd spend our lives forever holdin' hands

And here we are, still holdin' on
But if all the pretty things tied up in bows were gone...

I'll still be me
Just a normal girl from small town nowhere
I'll still laugh at your jokes and argue over silly things
I'll still be me
If you can count on one thing, I'll be here
The same girl that you've known for centuries
I'll still be me

Empires could rise and fall
The sun could swallow the moon
And I don't hold a crystal ball
But I promise you

I'll still be me
Just a normal girl from small town nowhere
I'll still be the mommy of our babies
I'll still be me
If you can count on one thing, I'll be here
The same girl that you've known for centuries
I'll still be me

    General CommentThis is my 2nd favourite from the album. It's an beautiful song, about staying the same person you've always been. It's def. something I think most anyone can relate too. I love the line "I'll still be the mommy of our babies" - it's so intimate and sweet.

    My InterpretationOne of my favorite songs from Martina (perhaps it is my favorite - she does have a lot of really good songs though).

    My interpretation of this song is basically, that she is singing this song to her husband that regardless of how famous and popular that she becomes, she promises that she won't change deep down who she is. She's not going to let fame go to her head. She still wants to keep family and life simple. I love that!
