"As I Am" as written by Alexander Francis Barry, Miley Cyrus and Shelly Peiken....
Gonna stay in bed today
'cause I can't stand the light
Don't know why I get so down

I won't be much fun tonight
And I can't believe
You still want to hang around me

It's not so pretty all the time
You don't mind
To you it's alright

As I am is how you take me
Never try to push or make me different
When I talk you listen to me

As I am is how you want me and
I know I've found the pieces missing
I'm looking at him

I'm not the girl you think you see
But maybe that's a lie
You almost know me better than
Me, myself and I

Don't know a lot of things
But I know what I got
It's not so perfect everyday
I don't have to try
'cause it all falls into place

As I am is how you take me
Never try to push or make me different
When I talk you listen to me

As I am is how you want me and
I know I've found the pieces missing
I'm looking at him

Face to face, eye to eye
You're standing there
Feels good on the inside

I don't mind, I don't care
You're standing there
Seein' me for the first time

Seein' me for the first time
Seein' me for the first time

As I am is how you take me
Never try to push or make me different
When I talk you listen to me

As I am is how you want me and
I know I've found the pieces missing
I'm looking at him

Found the pieces missing
Take me as I am
When I talk you listen
Take me as I am

Found the pieces missing
Take me as I am

    General Commentt sounds evil....HERE:
    Take this Advice:
    1. put your finger on your nose
    2. hold your breath for 5 seconds
    3. say the name of your love
    4. that person will ask you out on the next Friday
    5. you will have the best day tomorrow
    6. if you don't copy and paste to 2 other videos you will have bad luck and die in 2 days
