"This Is the Real Thing" as written by Matt Squire and Writers Unknown....
I got a lot of love to give
If you wanna make something sweet
Heaven forbid we should miss a chance to move our feet
Well, my heart beats to the rhythm of your heart
Baby, baby
My heart beats to the rhythm of your heart
Come on

I will love you just the way you are
Don't, don't you change yourself
Well, I will love you just the way you are
Don't, don't want no one else
Diamonds in the moonlight
Dancing on the sea
I would never change anything
Well, I will love you just the way you are
Don't, don't you change yourself
Break my heart a thousand times
And I'll come back for more

Tell me, honey, what's your drug
For your self-medicating heartache?
I'd tell you all you need is love
But didn't love break you in the first place?
Gossip magazines are making us stupid
And Hollywood pompous dreams are leaving us cold
Come on

I will love you just the way you are
Don't, don't you change yourself
Well, I will love you just the way you are
Don't, don't want no one else
Diamonds in the moonlight
Dancing on the sea
I would never change anything
Well, I will love you just the way you are
Don't, don't you change yourself
Break my heart a thousand times
And I'll come back for more

Pull me and push me in
Till I hear you singing
'Cause this is the real thing
Gossip magazines are making us stupid
And Hollywood pompous dreams are leaving us cold
Come on
This is the real thing

I will love you just the way you are
Don't, don't you change yourself
Well, I will love you just the way you are
Don't, don't want no one else
Diamonds in the moonlight
Dancing on the sea
I would never change anything
Well, I will love you just the way you are
Don't, don't you change yourself
Break my heart a thousand times
And I'll come back for more
Hey, break my heart a thousand times
And I'll come back for more

    General CommentI think he wants the girl to know she doesn't have to change herself, like wear the "right" clothes, want to be rich and famous to be loved. He likes how she is "real" and loves her just the way she is.

    General CommentHe loves her for who she is, she doesn't have to change. Love the ending of this song, very touching, while the intro is rockish, the ending hits the heart. Dan has a great way with words

    My heart beats tot he rhythm of your heart
    -Classic

    Pull me and push me in 'til I hear you singing
    -Best part when he sings that
