"I Am" as written by Christina Aguilera, Samuel Ronald Dixon and Sia Kate I. Furler....
I am timid
And I am oversensitive
I am a lioness
I am tired and defensive
You take me in your arms
And I fold into you
I have insecurities
You show me I am beautiful

Love me or leave me just take it or leave it
It's not that I'm needy just need you to see me
Take me, free me, see through to the core of me
Take me, free me, there will be no more pretending

I am temperamental
And I have imperfections
And I am emotional
I am unpredictable
I am naked
I am vulnerable
I am a woman
I am opening up to you

Love me or leave me, just take it or leave it
It's not that I'm needy, just need you to see me
Take me, free me, see through to the core of me
Take me, free me, there will be no more pretending

Now I stand before you with my heart in my hands
I'm asking you to take me just the way that I am

Please lay down your arms
Do you know me?
Make me feel safe from harm

Oh just take me, free me, see through to the core of me
Take me, free me, there will be no more pretending

I am temperamental
And I have imperfections
And I am emotional
There'll be no more pretending

    General CommentThis is such a simple beautiful song. It sounds like a lullaby. Good job Christina and Sia.

    My InterpretationThis is probably my favorite ballad off of Bionic (Stronger Than Ever is actually my favorite, but it's a bonus track). I think this song is about Christina admitting that she has insecurities and flaws, but she's asking her lover to accept her the way she is, flaws and all.
