This award-winning short film arose from a letter I received from a girl traveling in Europe. She read my book, The Single Girl's Guide to Meeting European Men, and used it to change her life. The concerns that troubled her when she bought my book are shared by many of today's young women. As a writer, I've done several university events. Each time, girls confide that they feel like they have to look and act a certain way to attract the men they desire. I always find this troubling, and explain that every girl has worth and appealing traits. What matters most is that she has confidence and is true to herself. This is message of But I Do.

The film won Best Music Video in Toronto, the Royal Reel Award for excellence at the Canada International Film Festival, and three awards at an international film festival in Jakarta cosponsored by the U.S. and French cultural centers—one was for the overall film and the other two were for me as best producer and actress.

Plus, I was honored at the Los Angeles Movie Awards for directing it, with a group that has included Ron Howard, Samuel Jackson, and Hayden Christensen. Besides the fact that they're famous, there is another minor difference between them and me:) Their staffs were experienced professionals, from crew to catering. Mine consisted of 92 friends who graciously volunteered, and catering was when I shared a bag of Milky Way candy bars. What I loved most was the fun we had.

LYRICS

INTRO
A stranger in a far away world.
How do I get noticed, just one girl.

It seems that I'm invisible,
I see him, but he doesn't see me.
And then one day I found the book
That showed the way to set me free

So now I know, and here I go
And you don't have a clue...
But I do.

VERSE 1
First glance, and you may not tell
But oh I know all too well
About this game that you play.

You act smooth, and you try to impress
Then you let me do the rest
But see I'm just not that girl.

I take it slow, and before you know...

CHORUS
You look, look, look like you're already mine
It didn't take too much time
Before you're fallin' for me.

So I take, take, take every moment that's mine
And you still don't know why
You can't resist me.
But I do.

VERSE 2
You speak low as you slowly walk by
With a hint in your eye
Like you've done this before.

But I'm not your typical style
I'm only here for a while
So let me take it my way.

We're dancing slow, and before you know...

CHORUS
You look, look, look like you're already mine
It didn't take too much time
Before you're fallin' for me.

So I take, take, take every moment that's mine
And you still don't know why
You can't resist me.
But I do.

INTERLUDE
I do, I do, I do...

CHORUS
You look, look, look like you're already mine
It didn't take too much time
Before you're fallin' for me.

So I take, take, take every moment that's mine
And you still don't know why
You can't resist me.
But I do.
