"The Way You Found Me" as written by and Ben ...
The more I smoke, the more I drink
The more I talk, the less I think
The less I think, the more I feel
Folks don't change
They just reveal

My mind is broke, my last nerve is shot
What you want from me, I ain't got
Two plus two will never be twenty-two
So please don't tell me twice what I need to do

There's no rules to lust
Only passion, and it can be so unjust
If we don't speak, we'll get along just fine
Don't ask me how I'm doing
'cause I don't feel like lying

Take me as I am
Or leave me the way you found me

    My InterpretationThe more I smoke, the more I drink.
    The more I talk, the less I think.
    The less I think, the more I feel.
    Folks don't change, they just reveal.

    So take me as I am, or leave me
    The way you found me,
    The way you found me,
    The way you found me.

    My mind is broke, my last nerve is shot.
    What you want from me, I ain't got.
    Two plus two will never be twenty-two,
    So please don't tell me twice what i need to do.

    You’ve got to take me as I am,
    Or leave me, the way you found me.
    Just where you found me,
    The way you found me.

    Oh now, there's no rules to lust,
    Only passion, and it can be so unjust.
    If we don't speak, we'll get along just fine.
    Don't ask me how I'm doing,
    Cause you know I don't feel like lying.

    Now take me as I am,
    Or just leave me the way you found me,
    The way you found me,
    The way you found me.
