I’ve always loved this song from Chris Young.
I’d like to imagine that out there somewhere is a real life good man that tries to be the man Chris Young describes in “The Man I Want To Be.” I don’t ever expect perfect, but I do expect effort. Nothing is more attractive to me than a man who tries to be the best man he can be. A man who chases after God first, then his girl, and never gives up on her. Dear future husband, please try to be this kind of man…
“I wanna be a good man. A ‘do like I should’ man. I wanna be the kind of man the mirror likes to see. I wanna be a strong man and admit that I was wrong, man. God I’m asking you to come change me to the man I wanna be.”
“That I wanna be a stay man. I wanna be a great man. I wanna be the kind of man that she sees in her dreams. God, I wanna be your man. And I wanna be her man. God, I only hope she still believes in the man I wanna be.”
“I wanna be a givin‘ man. I wanna really start livin’ man. God, I’m asking you to come change me to the man I wanna be.”
