I'm not the man that I once was
But I’m changing everyday
Because I want to find someone like you.
And you’ve got eyes that could tear me down,
But all they do is build me up
So hold my hand before my heart erupts.

Darling, I may not be everything you want,
But I can give you all I have.
I’m not the perfect man,
But you are just so perfect and
I want to be the one that holds your hand.

I’m sorry if I come off strong
And it could be that you’re all wrong for be
But I just had to see,
‘Cause you are broken,
And I am such a wreck.
I think we’d make a lovely mess.

Darling, I may not be everything you want,
But I can give you all I have.
I’m not the perfect man,
But you are just so perfect and
I want to be the one that holds your hand.

Someday we could wake up in a bed we call our own
I would buy you lots of flowers, and someday I'd build your home
I would sing you Frank Sinatra, while we sway along and dance,
This life, of course, could be all yours if you just give me a chance!

And darling, I may not be everything you want,
But I can give you all I have.
I’m not the perfect man,
But you are just so perfect and
I want to be the one that holds your hand.

I'm not those men that made you cry
And I promise I will spend my life
Just trying to make you feel alive
'Cause you are broken
And I am such a wreck
I swear I'll love you till I'm dead
