Gonna stay in bed today
Cause I can't stand the light
Don't know why I get so down
I won't be much fun tonight
And I can't believe
You still wanna hang around me

It's not so pretty all the time
You don't mind
To you it's all right

As I am
Is how you take me
Never try to push
Or make me different
When I talk you listen to me
As I am
Is how you want me and
I know I've found the piece that's missing
I'm looking at him

I'm not the girl you think you see
But maybe that's a lie
You almost know me better than
Me, myself and I
Don't know a lot of things
But I know what I got

It's not so perfect everyday
I don't have to try
Cause it all falls into place

As I am
Is how you take me
Never try to push
Or make me different
When I talk you listen to me

As I am
Is how you want me and
I know I've found the piece that's missing
I'm looking at him

Face to face, eye to eye
You're standing there
Feels good on the inside
I don't mind, I don't care
You're standing there
Seeing me for the first time
Seeing me for the first time
Seeing me for the first time

[Chorus]

Found the piece that's missin'
take me as I am

When I talk you listen
take me as i am

Found the piece that's missin'
take me as I am

    I actually don't think this song is sad. The beat is maybe a little slow and sad, but the lyrics is really awesome. It's about a person (let's say it's a guy) that takes her for who she is. He doesn't want to change her, he loves her as she is.

    If anyone gives you a hard time, just get in bed with daddy. You don't have to change or become a better person.

    i think this song means that she has just broken up with a guy an then she did it because he didn't listen and he took advantage of her.

    this song means to me that the person that the song is talking about is taken as she is, by another person(most likely another guy). This song is really awesome. XOXOXO
