"That's Just What I Am"

© 2003 by Andersen Silva

I'm not a man makin' tons and tons of money,
     I'm just a guy, tryin' hard to find things funny.
I'm the boy who wants to call you 'honey,'
     'Cos around you, my days always seem sunny!

I'm not a saint, though for you I'd try to be one.
     I'm just a man who knows he's found a reason,
For everything to which there is a season,
     'Cos it is you whom I long to be pleasin'...

CHORUS:
I'm a fool,
     I'm a prince,
For lack of further evidence,

I'm your hero
     On the lam,
That's just what I am!


I'm not a jerk, afraid to try a real change,
     Not a sleepwalking man, no, I'm really not that strange.
I'm not your rival, I don't want to compete;
     I'm your partner and your friend; you make me complete.

CHORUS:
Guitar player
     With a pick,
I'm a hopeless romantic,

I'm the guy
     Who'll push the pram,
That's just what I am!


Without you I am grim and fatalistic;
     But with you I am supercalifragilistic!
I'm happy and I'm silly, all because of you.
     And that is why I am the man who loves you.

Lovestruck boy,
     (I am the man who loves you...)
I'm your toy!
     (I am the man who loves you...)
Cybergeek,
     (I am the man who loves you...)
I'm not a freak!
     (I am the man who loves you...)
I'm your poet,
     (I am the man who loves you...)
I think you know it.
     (I am the man who loves you...)
