As I Am

My heart hasn't changed.  

----
I don't know who you could be
I don't know where you might be from
Maybe we're still very far away
Maybe we'll meet soon one day

You must've had dreams of me
As I often do of you
Of all you want for me to be
It's all fair I do agree

Though you are not here
Though you cannot hear
I have this one fear
I know it's a risk but I must ask you this
Won't you hear me please

*Would you take me as I am
When you see the real me
Would you take me as I am
Instead of trying to change me
Baby would you take me as I am

I may not fit perfectly
To the image you hoped I could be
I might fail at a chance to impress
All of this I do confess

When I don't measure up
When things get tough
When we've had enough
I know it's a risk but I must ask you this
Won't you hear me please

There might come one blissful day
When we both decide to stay
And for a moment it'll be okay
But we know what people say

There'll be times I know
When we'll want to let go
When our hearts are broken
When the world around us falls
And we've lost it all
But I must ask you just one thing
