THE WAT THAT I AM

I’VE SEEN TIME PASS THROUGH MY HANDS
I’VE SEEN YOU GROW AS BEST AS YOU CAN
NOW YOU’RE STANDING THERE A MAN
SAYING YOU WANT ME THE WAY THAT I AM
I’VE SEEN LIFE DRIFT RIGHT ON BY
AND I’VE HAD ME SOME DEVIL TO PAY
BUT YOU REACH OUT YOUR HAND
WITH THE KIND OF UNDERSTANDING
THAT SAYS YOU LOVE ME THE WAY THAT I AM
I’LL BE SOFT WHILE I STAY OPEN
CAUSE MY HEART  KNOWS THERE’S NOTHING ELSE TO DO
I’LL SAY GOODBYE TO THE DOORS THAT I HAVE CLOSIN’
JUST AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU
I;VE HAD LOVE SLIP THROUGH MY FINGERS
AND I’VE TASTED THE BITTERNESS AND WRATH
BUT YOU’RE STANDING HERE
WIPIN’ WAY MY TEARS
SAYIN’ YOU WANT ME THE WAY THAT I AM
DON’T FORAKE ME
NOW THAT I’VE  FOUND YOU
LET ME LOVE YOU
AS YOU LOVE ME
I’VE SEEN TIME PASS THROUGH MY HANDS
I’VE SEEN YOU GROW AS BEST AS YOU CAN
NOW YOU’RE STANDING THERE A MAN
SAYING YOU WANT ME THE WAY THAT I AM

COMMENT:
This song came out of a dream.
I was 24. Living in Sausalito.
Gary and I were newly together.
While sleeping I heard almost the whole tune.
I got up and drug the poor man to the Piano.
One of our first love songs.

Took me as many years again to learn how to sing it.
