Sugarland - Take me as I am

The radiator says 95
But I ain't felt a drop of heat all night
Here in this motel,
There's no telling me nothing
I come here five nights a week
To clean the toilets and change these sheets
My name's Maggie Duran,
Baby ain't that something?

If you want it
Come and get it
If you want it,
Come and get it but understand
You take me as I am

I know these corners, I know these streets
The curbside prophet there yelling at me
He can save my soul for a drink and a dollar
Yeah, he's yelling about my tattoos
But we all live with the scars we choose
They might hurt like hell,
But they all make us stronger

If you want it
Come and get it
If you want it, come and get it and understand
You take me as I am


I'm slow to trust but I'm quick to love
I push too hard and I give too much
I ain't saying I'm perfect, but I promise I'm worth it

Now I'm standing here in front of you
Tell me boy, what you gonna do?
Cause my name's Maggie Duran,
I said, ain't that something?

If you want it
Come and get it
If you want it,
Come and get it but understand
You take me as I am
