"Take Me as I Am" as written by Kristian Bush, Jennifer Nettles and Jeff Cohen....
Radiator says 95
But I ain't felt a drop of heat all night
Here in this motel there's no tellin me nothin'
I come here five nights a week
To clean the toilets and change these sheets
My name's Maggie Duran
Baby ain't that somethin'

[Chorus]
If you want it
Come and get it
If you want it
Come and get it
You'll understand
You take me as I am

I know these corners I know these streets
Curbside prophets they're yellin' at me
He can save my soul for a drink and a dollar
They keep yelling about my tattoos
We all live with the scars we choose
They might hurt like hell
But they all make us stronger

[Chorus]

Slow to trust but I'm quick to love
Push too hard and I give too much
I ain't sayin' 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
My name's Maggie Duran
Baby ain't that somethin'

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

    My InterpretationTo me she is telling a potenial boyfriend that she is not perfect, she has flaws, she doesn't live the luxurious life, but if you give her a chance she will be all you need in the end as long as you accept her for who she is. Do not try to change her. I think that this is every girls song.

    General Comment"I ain't sayin' I'm perfect, but I promise I'm worth it." That can be said for all of us.
