The Right Man

Album: Back to Basics (2006)
  • So many years have gone by
    Always strong, tried not to cry
    Never felt like I needed any man
    To comfort me in life
    But I'm all made up today
    A veil upon my face
    But no father stands beside me
    To give this bride away

    Well, I'm standing in the chapel
    Wearing my white dress
    I have waited for this moment
    With tears of happiness
    Here I leave behind my past
    By taking the chance
    I've finally found the right man

    Thoughts racing fast through my mind
    As I'm gazing down the aisle
    That my future will mend the memories
    Torn between father and child

    My emotions overload
    'Cause there is no hand to hold
    There's no shoulder here to lean on
    I'm walking all on my own

    Here I go

    Now I'm standing at four corners
    To have and to hold
    Now, my love, you stand beside me
    To walk life's winding road
    And I owe it all to you
    For taking that chance
    You've shown me there's a right man
    'Cause I never knew the right man

    Well, I'm standing in the chapel
    Ready to confess
    That I've waited for this moment
    With tears of happiness
    Now I leave behind my past
    By taking the chance
    Whoa

    Well, I'm standing at four corners
    To have and to hold
    Now, my love, you stand beside me
    To walk life's winding road
    And I owe it all to you
    For taking the chance

    And one day, my little girl
    Will reach out her hand
    She'll know I found the right man Writer/s: LINDA PERRY, CHRISTINA AGUILERA
