I suppose that I look different, without the robes and crown
I've come to stand before you with no riches, no reknown
For here I am no leader, I am just a humble man
and I only ask you take me, you take me as I am

I'm not looking for perfection, I'm not offering a saint
I'm not looking for a pretty bird to put in some restraint
The only thing I want is that you love me if you can
And I only ask you take me, you take me as I am

I offer you a look inside, I offer you that trust
I need your strength to help me fight the battles that I must
I need you to remind me of the light we bear within
And there's more to life than struggle and the things we seek to win

Don't take me out of duty don't take me out of pride
Just take me if the man you see is one you'd stand beside
I'm offering an open heart I'm asking for your hand
And I only ask you take me, you take me as I am
