In spite of myself

I know that there's nights I stayed out too late
And times I forgot to call
It's true I might argue at the drop of a hat
Or make a big deal out of nothing at all
I'm not much for rules but I'm faithful and true
And she knows on the inside I'm good.

What she sees in me ain't half as important as what she overlooks

And I wouldn't blame her now when she said goodbye
But she ain't like nobody else
And I must be the luckiest man alive
'Cause she loved me in spite of myself

I know she must wonder if she made the right choice
And sometimes I wonder too
It must be hard watching a man like me
Trying to make all of her dreams come true
I promised the moon and the stars in the sky
On the night that she promised her love
And I haven't come through, though I'm trying to
She says that's more than enough
