"The Way I Am" as written by David James Lichens, Cary Ryan Barlowe, Ric Robbins, Adam E. Anders, Chris Blaney and Todd V. Collins....
Dimensions of intervention
Are needless so I think
Striving and thriving I see
I'm driving to the brink

Avoiding annoying eternal
Complications destinations
Unimportant constantly
Distorting my relations

From patience to thoughts of
Hating anyone in my mind
I find it hard to believe you
Can relate to my kind

And if I could I would
Pretend that I'm alright by myself
If you love me as I am I'll
Put my pride on the shelf

If I can I'll pretend I'm
Alright all by myself
I'd rather drown than take
Your hand

It's the way I am
Skepticism leaves a wrinkle on my brow
Cynicism prevents my change
With this suspicion I'm caught in a dilemma

Intervention with my psyche?
Rearrange walls built to hinder
The intrusion
Preservation of my mental well being

Doubt makes me value the
Safety of my distance
Can it be stubbornness to
Which I cling?

If I can I'll pretend I'm
Alright all by myself
I'd rather drown than take
Your hand

It's the way I am
And if I climb a wall of pride
Swim across my sea of doubt
Will you love me as I am, the way I am
