Lyrics

TAKE ME AS I AM
Copyright 2004 Dave King

She gave back his ring
On an August evening
He drove his pickup
And disappeared down the drive
The warm summer breeze
It blew through the trees
As she stared into the lonely moonlight
You see, she’d been on her own
For much too long
She saw stars when he entered her life
They had great expectations
Even met the relations
And made plans to become man and wife

But sometimes things don’t always go as planned
Sometimes you just gotta take a stand
She said don’t try to change me
Into who you think I should be…

She was almost his age
But born and raised
On the wrong side of the tracks
Even though he loved her
Sometimes he could not endure
The sophistication that she lacked
So he tried over time
To help her become refined
He started out at the top of the list
He surely didn’t expect it
But she began to reject it
And found all she could do was resist

Sometimes it begins to feel wrong
When you’ve forgotten the words to your song
She said, don’t try to change me
Into who you think I should be…

Take me as I am
Or else we’re gonna take a fall
Take me as I am
Or don’t take me at all

Take me as I am
Or else we’re gonna take a fall
Take me as I am
Or don’t take me at all

She turns off the porch light
And locks the door up tight
Heads up to bed
All alone
