“The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson Lyrics

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

‘Cause I love the way you say “good morning”.
And you take me the way I am.

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

‘Cause I love the way you call me “baby”.
And you take me the way I am.

And I’ll buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair.
And sew on patches to all you tear.

‘Cause 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.
