If you were falling, then I would catch you.
You need a light, I'd find a match.

Cuz I love the way you say good morning.
And you take me the way I am.

If you are chilly, here take my sweater.
Your head is aching, I'll make it better.

Cuz I love the way you call me baby.
And you take me the way I am.

I'd buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair.
Sew on patches to all you tear.

Cuz I love you more than I could ever promise.
And you take me the way I am.
You take me the way I am.
You take me the way I am.

    I believe the meaning of this song is about loving someone so much that you would do absolutely anything and everything for them. To be consumed by so much love is always a beautiful thing.

    This song is clearly about a desperate woman’s resolve to love a clumsy smoker who sleeps late, has poor circulation, suffers from migraines, is starting to show signs of male pattern balding, and who apparently works around barbed wire or rose bushes. Dang, aside from the roses and smoking, this song could be about me. Guess its time to re-evaluate my life.
