Week 34 – The Man I Want To Be

While thinking of ideas for this week’s song, I stumbled upon a quote online. It goes something like this: “The man you want is the man I want to be, but without you, I can’t be that man. Without you, that man’s gone forever.” It’s author is unknown.

I think it says a lot when a man feels that way about the woman he loves. It means that for her, he will become a better man; that because of her, he is inspired to be the man that she wants.

It’s really quite a beautiful and powerful quote, and this song was born from it.

I’ll keep this post short, because it’s Boxing Day and I’m sure everyone has had a brilliant Christmas weekend. I’ll let the song speak for itself this time.

I feel so blessed for this long and happy Christmas, full of food, family and lots of love…

I’d like to wish everyone out there a cup filled with joy and laughter. And if you’ve been following this blog, and my songwriting journey, thank you so much for the support. God Bless you all 🙂

The Man I Want To Be
© Music and Lyrics by Marcel Lee Pereira, 26 Dec 2010

You deserve someone better than me
I’ve made you cry more times than I can count
You’ve seen in me the good that I can’t see
I know that I was lost but now I’m found

For you, I’ll change my ways
In my life you take first place

CHORUS
You see the man you want is the man I want to be
You see the man you want is the man I want to be

Sometimes darkness makes the world so clear
How I cried when I almost lost your love
You stayed by my side despite the fear
Like a ray of light sent from above

For you, I’ll change my ways
In my life you take first place

CHORUS
You see the man you want is the man I want to be
You see the man you want is the man I want to be

Without you, I am gone forever
Only you… make me want to be better
Your breath has shook my very roots
I willingly surrender

CHORUS
You see the man you want is the man I want to be
You see the man you want is the man I want to be
