THE WAY I AM

 

 

THROUGHOUT MY CHILDHOOD YEARS
MY FATHER USED TO SAY
I SHOULD JUST BE MYSELF
DON'T GET CAUGHT IN THE CROWD
AND NEVER BE AFRAID
TO SEEK OUT MY DESIRES
IF SOMETHING MAKES ME HAPPY
THAT'S THE PATH I SHOULD CHOOSE

CAUSE

(CHORUS)

IN HIS WORDS
I FOUND THE THINGS
THAT MADE ME THE
THE WAY I AM
YEH, YEH, YEH
I FOUND THE THINGS
THAT MADE ME THE
THE WAY I AM

NOW AS THE YEARS PASSED BY
I'VE TOOK ALL HIS ADVICE
USED IT AS A MODEL
ON HOW TO LIVE MY LIFE
SOMETIMES IT'S BEEN EASY
AND EACH UP HAD IT'S DOWN
BUT WHATEVER THE COST
I'VE STAYED TRUE TO MY HEART

CAUSE

(CHORUS)

(SOLO)

NOW THAT I'M A FATHER
HOPE I CAN DO THE SAME
AND PASS ON SOME OF THE
KNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE GAINED
HELP HER CHOOSE THE RIGHT PATH
TO FIND HER HAPPINESS
THEN AS SHE GROWS OLDER
SHE'LL LOOK BACK AND SAY

YEH

(CHORUS)

THE WAY I AM
