The Way I Love You

You don’t need to perfect.
You don’t need to be the one
Who is always helping people
Get the job done.

You don’t need to be a supermodel
For me to notice you.
You just need to be the guy
I know is true.

You don’t have to buy presents
To give me on certain holidays.
A simple “I Love You”
Is all you need to say.

You don’t need to act tough
When I know you’re about to cry.
And I will be there to wipe the tears
As they fall from your eye.

You don’t have to hold my hand
As we walk through the mall.
I just need to know that
You’re giving our love your all.

You don’t need to write me a song
Or make me prom queen.
I just need to know if
I appear when you dream.

You don’t need to change your hair
So you look more than cool.
I would stand up for you
When you’re picked on at school

So please, dear
You don’t need to be a star
Because I love you
Just the way you are.

This is great! I just wanna say that I'm right there with ya - people shouldn't change themselves just to make sure that others love them - they just need to be themselves and hope for the best. :)
