May and I were two children just swimming in a pool,
We'd ride on rockets, swing sets and we'd try to touch the moon.
And I will never forget the first time she touched my hand,
I knew this could be the one who would make me an honest man.
She was like the way she was, she was like the way she was.

Now we got older faster than we ever could have seen,
And lights went down on graduation and on a wedding ring.
We bought our first house and had a baby on the way,
But during birth I got my daughter, but Jesus took away my May.

And I didn't know how to say what I felt, no I didn't know how to say what I felt like.
She was just like she was, when you looked into her eyes you'd come undone
She was just like she was, she could love you on your worst day,
Didn't care about the mistakes, she was like she was.

Now baby girls love daddy most, but they need a mothers care,
I tried my best to raise her right, I just couldn't braid her hair.
One day she got old enough to have her wedding day,
But as I walked her down the aisle all I could see was my May.

I didn't know how to say what I felt, no I didn't know how to say what I felt like.
She was just like she was, when you looked into her eyes you'd come undone.
She was just like she was, she could love you on your worst day,
Didn't care about the mistakes, she was like she was.

May, I hope you can see what I see
'Cuz, when they talk about our baby, girl,
They think of you and they say to me, "She was just like she was,
When I looked into her eyes I'd see the sun, she was just like she was,
She could love you on your worst days, doesn't care about the mistakes,
She was like she was."

She was just like she was, and when you look into her eyes you'd come undone
She was just like she was, and I cannot feel my heart beat without the thought of her inside me,
She was like she was.
