Man I Am Today

"Anything Like Me"

Man I Am Today 


It’s a kiss from Katie on the swing set
When I was in 3rd grade
Teacher makin’ me sit from recess
When I would misbehave
Its a long haul to see my grandma
During the holidays
I can tell my momma loved Jesus
By the way that she said grace

Its a spring break
For me and my buddies that had to go our own way
Sunday, that I got saved
It’s a class ring
That we never bought ‘cause we thought we'd win state
But it didn't turn out that way
I can’t complain
It’s how it became
The man I am today

It’s a fast lane headed down the interstate
A long way from home
Loaded down with a truck full of memories
The only thing I’ve ever owned
It’s a late night
Bar fights comin’ in
Getting pizza at 3 am
Fallin’ in and out of love with my girlfriend
Asking God to forgive my sins again
And again

It’s the four years
Everybody says you’re supposed to find yourself
And they were the best
There’s the lonely tears
That I cried the night that I saw my dad die
But I know he’s in a better place
So I can’t complain
It’s how I became
The man I am today

Cause the good Lord always seems to have a funny way
Of makin' you look back on your life and say

It’s the white dress
Walking down the aisle the day I said I do
Watchin’ our boy take his first breath
It’s the true love
That made it through the years and started on a swing set
I know that I am truly blessed
So I can’t complain
Wouldn't change a thing
It’s how I became
The man I am today
The man I am today

It’s a kiss from Katie on the swing set, when I was in 3rd grade
