She's been down and out, she's been wrote about
She's been talked about constantly
She's been up and down, she's been pushed around
But they held her down NYC

She has no regrets, she accepts the past
All these things they help to make she
She's been lost and found but she's still around
There's a reason for everything, yeah

You know I've been holding on
Try to make me weak but I still stay strong
Put my life all up in these songs
Just so you can feel me

So take me as I am
Or have nothing at all
Just take me as I am
Or have nothing at all

Yeah, she's older now, yeah she's wiser now
Can't disguise her now, she don't need
No one telling her what to do and say
No one telling her who to be

She's on solid ground, she's been lost and found
But she answers to G O D
And she's confident this is not the end
Ask me how I know 'cause she is me

You know I've been holding on
Try to make me weak but I still stay strong
Put my life all up in these songs
Just so you can feel me

So take me as I am
Or have nothing at all
Just take me as I am
Or have nothing at all

So it's all or nothing at all, all or nothing at all
Don't you know I can only be me, yeah
So it's all or nothing at all, all or nothing at all
Don't you know I can only be me?

So take me as I am
Or have nothing at all
Just take me as I am
Or have nothing at all

Take me as I am
Take me as I am
Said it's all or nothing at all
Said it's all or nothing at all

Just take me as I am
Or have nothing at all

Just take me as I am
Or have nothing, nothing at all
Just take me as I am
Or have nothing, nothing
