Take Me as I Am Lyrics

by Bob Dylan

Why must you always try to make me over ?
Take me as I am or let me go
White lilies never grow on stalks of clover
Take me as I am or let me go

You're trying to reshape me in a mold o' love
In the image of someone you used to know
But I won't be a stand-in for an old love
Take me as I am or let me go

You've tried to change me ever since you've met me
Take me as I am or let me go
If you cannot overlook my faults, forget me
Take me as I am or let me go

You're trying to reshape me in a mold o' now
But I won't be a stand-in for an old love
Take me as I am or let me go
