Lyrics Breakdown

For once in my life, I know the meaning of happiness
And what it means to have a dream come true
Cause every day I wake up singing  livin’  on the sunshine love is bringing
And it’s wonderful knowin’ that I owe it all to you
At last, I’ve got a reason to be a living

You’re My Man” describes the narrator’s love for her lover. The lyrics mentioned above show that there is no one else in this world that matters aside from her lover. The love that was brought by her beloved is what keeps her going.

Falling in love with someone who accepts and loves you is just so precious.
