Did I say something stupid?
There goes one more mistake
Do I bore you with my problems?
Is that why you turn away?
Do you know how hard I tried
To become what you want me to be?

Take me
This is all that I've got
This is all that I'm not
All that I'll ever be
I've got flaws, I've got faults
Keep searching for your perfect heart
It doesn't matter who you are
We all have our scars
We all have our scars

You say don't act like a child
But what if it's a father I need?
It's not like you don't know what you got yourself into
Don't tell me I'm the one who's naive
Do you know how hard I've tried
To become what you want me to be?

Take me
This is all that I've got
This is all that I'm not
All that I'll ever be
I've got flaws, I've got faults
Keep searching for your perfect heart
It doesn't matter who you are
We all have our scars
We all have our scars

Come on, just let it go
These are things you can't control
Your expectations, your explanations
Don't make sense to me
You and your alternatives
Don't send me to your therapists
Deep down, I know what you mean
And I'm not sure that's what I wanna be
No

Take me
This is all that I've got
This is all that I'm not
All that I'll ever be
I've got flaws, I've got faults
Keep searching for your perfect heart
It doesn't matter who you are
We all have our scars
We all have our scars
Oh no no no

Did I say something stupid
There goes one more mistake...

    This song was one that i have loved for a while... My dad had it on his phone for me, and 7 weeks ago today he passed... At his services, we played all the music he had stored on his phone... This is the only song i remember playing... I miss you, daddy.

    I asoloutly love ths song, bc its like exactly how i feel. Just being a totally imperfectgirl trying to keep everything together, rarely ever saying or foing the right things, or knowing when to be quiet. Having problems that you dont think people understand, but just hoping that somone will totally accept u the way u are,with all your scars and imperfections. And wanting people to know that you wont judge anyone for their scars and imperfections...

    None of us are perfect. Weve all got our own issues and we all come with bagaggage of some sort... But that doesnt make us incapable of love. Lets not ask perfection form our loved ones because were just as far from it as them, or i guess were all perfect in our different ways :p

    This song is all about a man who doesn't respect her for who she is and is trying to change her.
