Take Me as I Am Lyrics

by Sugarland

Radiator says 95
But I ain't felt a drop of heat all night
Here in this motel
There's no tellin' me nothin'

I come here five nights a week
To clean the toilets and change these sheets
My name's Maggie Duran
Baby, ain't that somethin'

If you want it, come and get it
If you want it, come and get it
You'll understand
You take me as I am

I know these corners
I know these streets
Curbside prophets, they're yellin' at me
He can save my soul for a drink and a dollar

Yeah, he's yelling about my tattoos
We all live with the scars we choose
They might hurt like hell
But they all make us stronger

If you want it, come and get it
If you want it, come and get it
You'll understand
You take me as I am

Slow to trust but I'm quick to love
I push too hard and I give too much
I ain't sayin' I'm perfect
But I promise I'm worth it

Now I'm standing here in front of you
Tell me boy, what you gonna do?
My name's Maggie Duran
I said ain't that somethin'

If you want it, come and get it
If you want it, come and get it
You'll understand

If you want it, come and get it
If you want it, come and get it
You'll understand
You take me as I am
