Don't go changing, to try and please me
You never let me down before
Don't imagine you're too familiar
And I don't see you anymore

I would not leave you in times of trouble
We never could have come this far
I took the good times, I'll take the bad times
I'll take you just the way you are

Don't go trying some new fashion
Don't change the color of your hair
You always have my unspoken passion
Although I might not seem to care

I don't want clever conversation
I never want to work that hard
I just want someone that I can talk to
I want you just the way you are.

I need to know that you will always be
The same old someone that I knew
What will it take till you believe in me
The way that I believe in you.

I said I love you and that's forever
And this I promise from the heart
I couldn't love you any better
I love you just the way you are.

    I love this very beautiful song. You love them for who they are and you wouldn't want to change them. You genuinely love them for just the way they are.

    The music was halted for two hours. Important news stories were heard on easy 93.1 continuous soft & easy favorites. The program started at 5:20am and ended at 7:00am.

    The music was stopped indefinitely.

    So sad to hear breaking news.

    So worried not to have music for an extended period of time.
