Woman, you don't understand
Oh, I'm just a man
Baby, that's all I am
That's all I have ever been
And you, you don't understand
Oh, I've gotta live

You make it so hard to do
You know you hurt me, baby
Take me, take me as I am
Take me as I am, Baby
Ooh, ooh, take me as I am

All I believe is that you've taken me
For some kind of dream
I don't want to wait too long
For my love is in the way to see it
I don't wanna lose you, baby
But your love is in the way

Ya gotta listen
It's time to listen to me
You, you don't realize
Oh, I've gotta live
You make it so hard to bear
It may be hard for me to go on

And I know, I know, I know
You'll understand
I'm just a man, baby
That's all I am
Don't make it hard on me

Just take me, take me as I am, baby
Take me as I am, baby
Take me as I am, oh
Take me as I am, Baby
Oh, take me as I am now
