Come
As you are
As you were
As I want you to be
As a friend
As a friend
As an old enemy
Take your time
Hurry up
The choice is your
Don't be late
Take a rest
As a friend
As an old memoria
Memoria
Memoria
Memoria

Come
Dowsed in mud
Soaked in bleach
As I want you to be
As a trend
As a friend
As an old memoria
Memoria
Memoria
Memoria

And I swear
That I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
Memoria
Memoria
Memoria {don't have a gun}

And I swear
That I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun

Memoria
Memoria

    I don't exactly know why but since this song was made about a year befor Frances Bean Cobain was born, whenever I listened to the song I always thought it was about what every parent or future parent thinks. They want their child to be someone who they wanted to be, but at the same time, they want them to be exactly who they wish they would be. "Take your time, hurry up," I think he wants the child to be born right then, but he also wants to make sure that she is ready and is telling the child to take her time. I never searched up an interview or anything about this song, but this is just my opinion.

    Kurt Cobain Said in a Interview, that the style of fans would change every show Punk/Prep/Hippie/Grunge etc. Come As You Are was basically about that

    so this is the only mainstream nirvana song I like, and it's crafted beautifully. I think it's about being original and yourself, no matter how you act or look like.
