(Reba McEntire with Susie Luchsinger)

I know I haven't said the words the way I used to
I should've made the time, I know
When I didn't know which way to turn, I turned to you
You always seemed to know which way to go
You know you always seem to see the best in me
You stand by me, no matter how things are
If I haven't told you lately how I feel
Let me tell you now, what's in my heart

If I could only be like you
You always seemed to see the good
And then you make a dream come true
And ask for nothing in return
You always know just what to do
You're someone I can look up to
I'd be a better me
If I could only be like you

You know, you've always seen me through the worst of times
You have a way of lighting up the dark
And though we're sometimes far apart somehow across the miles
I still know you're never very far
You know you always seem to see the best in me
And you stand by me no matter how things are
If I haven't told you lately how I feel
Let me tell you now, what's in my heart

If I could only be like you
You always seemed to see the good
And then you make a dream come true
And ask for nothing in return
You always know just what to do
You're someone I can look up to
I'd be a better me
If I could only be like you
Like you - like you
