Travis Tritt – You Really Wouldn't Want Me That Way lyrics

I know I'm far from perfect,
Too set in my ways for my own good.
And there's other things about me you think you'd like to change,
If you just could.
I could let you shape me, mold me like a potters piece of clay.
But you really wouldn't want me that way.

It's a crazy world we live in,
And it keeps on gettin tougher all the time.
You say you wish I wouldn't let life's troubles,
Weigh so heavy on my mind.
When things are wrong I guess that I could smile,
Pretending everything's okay.
Oh, you really wouldn't want me that way.

I'm just the man I've always been,
I don't know how to be nobody else.
And a man can only change so much,
Till he becomes a shadow of himself.
I never could be happy,
If I were just your puppet on a string, yes I could change.
But you really wouldn't want me that way.
You really wouldn't want me that way.

Now don't misunderstand me,
I want to be a man that makes you proud.
I ain't ashamed to show how much I love you,
Every way that I know how.
I can make concessions,
But don't ask me to bend until I break.
'Cause you really wouldn't want me that way.

Don't ask me tomorrow to become someone I wasn't yesterday.
'Cause you really wouldn't want me that way.
Ah you really wouldn't want me........ That way.
