Take Me as I Am
by Sugarland



The radiator says 95
But I ain't felt a drop of heat all night
Here in this motel, there's no telling me nothing
I come here five nights a week
To clean the toilets and change these sheets
My name's Maggie Durant, baby ain't that something

CHORUS:
If you want it
Come and get it
If you want it, come and get it but understand
You take me as I am

I know these corners, I know these streets
The curb-side Prophet there yelling at me
He can save my soul for a drink and a dollar
Yeah, he's yelling about my tatoos
But we all live with the scars we choose
They might hurt like hell, but they all make us stronger

REPEAT CHORUS

I'm slow to trust but I'm quick to love
I push too hard and I give too much
I ain't saying 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?
Cause my name's Maggie Durant, I said, ain't that something

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE
