Lyrics

Was there something special about yesterday?
I knew there was something I forgot to say.
I'll make it up someday.
Maybe we can go to dinner and movie, even though you know I don't like movies. I know I gotta make it right.

And I know lovin' me ain't easy, and just so you ya know, it ain't easy to be me.
So many other guys could look into your eyes and see...
I just wanna love you. May as well be, may as well be, may as well be me.

I may not be a Don Juan or Romeo but this sure ain't my first rodeo
Maybe I'm not New York or Hollywood, but I stuck around, and that's pretty good. And sometimes I'm the squeaky wheel and maybe not the most ideal...but hey, I stuck around

And I know lovin' me ain't easy, and just so ya know, it ain't easy to be me.
So many other guys could look into your eyes and see...
I just wanna love you. May as well be, may as well be, may as well be me.

I know I ain't the guy to wine you and dine you, but I know I am the guy who'll walk on fire for you. And maybe I'll be the guy who gives it a try for you, and maybe I'll be the guy...
who lives and dies for you.

And I know lovin' me ain't easy. Just so ya know, it ain't easy to be me.
So many other guys could look into your eyes and see
I just wanna love you. May as well be, may as well be, may as well be me.

Upbeat song with great production. Young love and relationships represent well in this song. I like the way the wah guitar is mixed in with delay to fill out those parts. All the guitars sound great.
