It's 5:46 in the morning; tossin and turnin;
Chest burnin; sermons in my head keep reoccurring;
Havin visions in my head of a kid
Cryin at the feet of the father for all the wrong things that he did;
Now I'm sweatin in my sheets, can't sleep;
My mind keeps tellin me I'm 6 feet deep; don't remind me;
Even though I'm still alive I can't tell;
The way I'm livin my life I feel I'm goin to hell; god, they tellin me I should except you; that you had to leave the world cause the world left you; reason I can't change; like a mystery to me; so I make-believe there really is a heaven for a g; even though they say you loved the world so much you she'd your blood; god, I feel I'm too messed up for love; they tell me come as I am; but I smell like smoke; my whole life is full
Of sin cause it's all I know; the bible told me you died for my sins; if I believe in Christ to save me from the end; but I'm scared to ask you to save me; my heart so evil; I've got thoughts just full of hatred; hurt from people; I thought that first I had to clean up my life; now I'm here and I just gotta cling to the light; I'm ready to do it but, I pray you understand; my life is a mess, will you take me as I am

Will you take me as I am; I know the way I'm livin is wrong, but I can't change on my own tryin to make it alone; I wonder, how could u love me with my life so ugly; when you came down and died for me.Will you take me as I am; I know the way I'm livin is wr
Ong, but I can't change on my own tryin to make it alone; I wonder, how could u love me with my life so ugly; when you came down and died for me.

I'm still tryin to be the man my daddy never taught me to be; I'm grown up now, life aint what I thought it would be; I made many mistakes in my past I can't fix; now I'm starin at this crucifix, tainted on my wrist; is it true what they tellin me am I just crazy;
Did you bleed on the cross for my sins to save me; but why would you die for me; my whole life I've been workin for Satan while he fed lies to me; and now I'm hearin too much; tryin to get in true touch; about a love that can change me; I'm all screwe
D up; figured hell is what I deserve; but ur word says we all fall shook; so I guess we all owe a bird; teach me I want to learn; how you can save a wretch like me before death sends it's last turn; I think I finally understand; no matter my past you'll s
Till take me as I am.

Will you take me as I am; I know the way I'm livin is wrong, but I can't change on my own tryin to make it alone; I wonder, how could u love me with my life so ugly; when you came down and died for me.Will you take me as I am; I know the way I'm livin is wr
Ong, but I can't change on my own tryin to make it alone; I wonder, how could u love me with my life so ugly; when you came down and died for me. Will you take me as I am.

I had a few last words to give; I've been tellin people the reason to live, the reason to die; united with the king of the sky; this life is passin us by, I've got no reason to lie; you'll never give the world enough; they'll hunger for more; there fixin t
Here ways of nothin to settle the score; more security than the man who left you; or more love than the mommas who kept you; he'll always except you; be everything your supposed to; let christ rule your heart mind body and soul because he chose you; and
If the world don't know you; it don't matter, your god's child and he'll never disown you; your purpose on earth is far from worthless; that's why you glorify like your lifes been purchased; and it don't matter if the world don't see us; we still mean the wor
Ld to jesus.

Will you take me as I am; I know the way I'm livin is wrong, but I can't change on my own tryin to make it alone; I wonder, how could u love me with my life so ugly; when you came down and died for me.Will you take me as I am; I know the way I'm livin is wr
Ong, but I can't change on my own tryin to make it alone; I wonder, how could u love me with my life so ugly; when you came down and died for me. Will you take me as I am.

    Its a song i turn to to comfort my soul and to ask for gods forgiveness for my perpetual sins... Its a song i can relate to. The lyrics asks god to save us when we're in sin not when we are perfect...
