Humperdinck, Engelbert - The Man I Want To Be Lyrics

Sometimes I feel a shadow fall across my heart
Sometimes the distance and the sadness is too hard
And you try your best to reach me but I can't reach back for you
I know that I'm not easy when there's just no getting through

I'm sorry if I ever made you feel unsure
Made you think I didn't love you anymore
When I don't know how to show it
When my heart is trying to hide
Darling can't you see it in my eyes

You are the light, you are the sun
You are the one right thing when my whole world is wrong
And through it all you still love me
For the man I am and the man I want to be

When my troubles weigh me down you take the weight
Your love for me is like a bridge that never breaks
And for all my faults and failings you can see a better man
Somehow you still take me as I am

You are the light, you are the sun
You are the one right thing when my whole world is wrong
And through it all you still love me
For the man I am and the man I want to be

You're the northern star that guides me
When the shoreline can't be found
You're the one that understands me
When the rain is coming down

You are the light, you are the sun
You are the one right thing when my whole world is wrong
And through it all you still love me
For the man I am and the man I want to be

You are the light, you are the sun
You are the spark of inspiration in my song
And through it all you still love me
For the man I am and the man I want to be
For the man I am and the man I want to be
