"Come As You Are" as written by Eric Benet Jordan and George T. Jr. Nash....
Here in my mind
Replaying every line
Remembering all of the love we made
You told me only yesterday
Nothing could take your love away

Here in this room so many traces of you
So many nights lying by your side
Sleeping with secrets deep inside
Secrets your eyes could not deny

Come as you are
Lay with me
Beautiful lies once more tell me
With all the love in my heart
I'll set you free
Now that your eyes have said good-bye

I found joy so pure
My heart secure
With the love the two of us would share
And though it all seems so unfair
No one's to blame when love's not there
My whole life has changed
Feels like I'll surely go insane
'Cause my world revolved 'round
a love that never was
Before I say good-bye to love
Just hold me until the morning comes

Come as you are stay with me
Kiss me once more before you leave
With all the pain in my heart
I'll set you free
Now that your eyes have said good-bye

Well I know it's not easy
Finding words to let me know
But the pain of make believing
is much more than just letting go

Come as you are
Lay with me
Beautiful lies once more tell me
With all the love in my heart
I'll set you free
Now that your eyes have said good-bye

Come as you are stay with me
Kiss me once more before you leave
With all the pain in my heart
I'll set you free
Now that your eyes have said good-bye

    General CommentThis song to me is about realizing that the person you are in love with doesn't love you anymore, and trying to be brave and deal with it. I think that the girl doesn't want to hurt him, because of how he says, "I know it's not easy finding words to let me know, but the pain of make-believing is much more than just letting go." To me, thoses lines show that she was trying to find a way to tell him that wouldn't damage him too much, but she didn't know how. And in the end, it was her eyes that told him the truth, not her (Hence, where he says "Secrets your eyes can not deny").
    This song is special to me becuase it tells the tale of a very brave, strong person. Some people in real life actually do go on "make-believing" in their lives, even when reality is staring them in the face. Sometimes it is simply better to move on, and I think that's what Eric Benet is saying
