Chris Young - Who I Am with You

"Who I Am With You"

I've been a rolling stone all my life
Flying all alone, flying blind
I've seen it all, I've been around
I've been lost and I've been found

But who I am with you is who I really wanna be
You're so good for me
When I'm holding you, it feels like I've got the world in my hands. Yeah a
better man, is who I am with you.

I've got a ways to go on this ride
But I've got a hand to hold, that fits just right
You make me laugh, you make me high
You make me wanna hold on tight

But who I am with you is who I really wanna be
You're so good for me
When I'm holding you, it feels like I've got the world in my hands. Yeah a
better man, is who I am with you.

Because with you, I'm a lucky man
You're the best part of who I am

Who I am with you, is who I really wanna be
You're so good for me
And when I'm holdin you, it feels like I've got the world in my hands

Yeah, it's who I am with you

T1: Who he becomes when he's with her

P: This song is his way of showing the person he becomes when he is with his girlfriend. He talks about how she makes him turn into a better person and how he wishes he was always like that.

C: -Metaphor- "I've been a rolling stone all my life", he is saying that he is constantly moving

-Hyperbole- "I've seen it all, I've been around", he is exaggerating because he hasn't really seen everything in the world.

-Repetition- "Who i am with you is who i really wanna be", he is trying to get his point across that he is thankful for the man she has changed him into, so he keeps repeating it.

A: The speaker is a man who cherishes the one he has in his life. His actual attitude is very loving and grateful.

S: In the first part of the song, "I've been a rolling stone all my life. Flying all alone, flying blind. I've seen it all, I've been around. I've been lost and I've been found", the shift is sad and lonely. And then the rest of the song is loving and grateful.

T2: The title also explains the person he has become after her being in his life.

T3: The theme is very caring. He was very upset with the way his life was going until she came along.
