Bruno Mars Becomes Ladies' Dream Man with "Just the Way You Are"

There are probably lots of ladies on the planet who wish they were Bruno Mars' girlfriend right now.

That's because his latest single, "Just the Way You Are," is one of the prettiest, purest love songs out there right now. Girls all over the place instantly swoon when the hear it, and its gorgeous lyrics are tear-inducing and chill-causing--at least for those who are suckers for love songs with passion.

It's all about Mars' love for his lady, as he proclaims she's perfect, whatever flaws she may perceive in herself. "Whe I see your face," he sings, "there's not a thing that I would change, 'cause you're amazing just the way you are."

He says he tells his girlfriend every day how beautiful she is, complimenting her hair, her lips, her eyes, her laugh. Chances are, the girl's not a supermodel, but Mars builds he up as if she is one daily. True, confidence should come from within, but it's so nice to hear the person you love sing your praises, too.

The song's greatest message is how important it is for ladies to find a guy like Mars--one who doesn't wish you had bigger breasts, or a smaller butt, or plumper lips. When you truly love someone, everything looks perfect, and there is no need to compare the object of your affection to anyone else.

Mars sings with enough intensity that his lyrics seem believable. This is the first single off his yet-to-be-titled album, and if it's representative of what's to come, then his album should be an anthem for ladies everywhere. He already sang on another pro-lady track, "Nothin' on You," so it'll be interesting to hear what he's got up his sleeve next.
