The stars are bright tonight
And I am walking nowhere
I guess I will be alright
Desire gets you nowhere

And you are always right
And my, you are so perfect

Take you as you are
I'll have you as you are
I'll take you as you are

I love you just the way you are
I'll have you just the way you are
I'll take you just the way you are
Does anyone love the way they are?

The stars are bright tonight
A distance is between us
And I will be okay
The worst I've ever seen us

Still I have my weaknesses
Still I have my strengths
And still I have my ugliness
But I..

I love you just the way you are
I'll have you just the way you are
I'll take you just the way you are
Does anyone love the way they are? (x2)

Star, star...

    General CommentThis song mostly describes when I wanted just to get away from it all, "The stars are bright tonight and I am walking nowhere." and also of my current love life. When I am all dolled up on Friday nights, the guys love me, but I not sure that even one of them would like my guise of a Saturday afternoon, that is, covered in horse poo, angry, and sweaty. thus my long time dream of "I'll take you just the way you are!"

    General Commentto me, this song just seems like another love song.
    but, that's sorta uncranberry-like, nay? .. or is it just me?

    General CommentI absolutely love this song! It's one of my favorite's by The Cranberries. I went through obsessions with a few of their songs and this was one of them.
    The song sounds so free-spirited and happy, even though, the lyrics aren't exactly chipper.
    I just love it!

    The *stars* are bright tonight!

    My InterpretationI think this song is kinda like a "slap in the face"...
    Like the person is all high and mighty n think that they're always right. And she's saying, oh yeah sure, I'll take you as you are and love you as you are because you're so perfect right, but really. Does anyone really, n sincerely love the way they are these days?

    Lol could be way of course there but gave it a shot.
