Take Me As I Am

from the musical Jekyll & Hyde
Music by Frank Wildhorn, Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse

Sometimes I see past the horizon
Sure of my way where I am going
But where's the prize I have my eyes on
Where, there is just no knowing
And when despair tears me in two
Who can I turn to but you
You know who I am
Take me as I am

Look in my eyes who do you see there
Someone you know or just a stranger
If you are wise you will see me there
Love is the only danger
Love needing me, love needing you
We'll make that one dream come true
You know who I am
Take me as I am

Though fate won't always do what we desire
Still we can set the world on fire
Give me your hand, give me your heart
Swear to me we'll never part (we'll never part)
You know who I am (you know who I am)
This is who I am (this is who I am)
Take me as I am


Find the answer reflected back to you in your love. Doubts are erased when you are accepted as you are, the whole package deal. It's a risk worth taking. It's a risk worth asking for. Ask for it.

A Poem by Morgan Le Fey

Take me as I am
Let your winds blow through me
All that I am
I offer to these winds of change

I am the void, I am the fire
I burn bright with deep desire
I am the truth and I am silence
I am pain and I am violence

Take me as I am
Let your blue wash over me
All that I am
I offer to this sea of change

I am faith and I am fear
I am blindness and the seer
I am the wild sea and the healing rain
I am the sacred and profane

Take me as I am
Let your love touch me deep
All that I am
I offer to these times of change

I am the dance and I am the dancer
I am the call and I am the answer
I am the courage and strength to fight
I am the longing, lonely night

Take me as I am
Let your winds blow through me
All that I am
I offer to these winds of change

Take me as I am
Take me as I am
Take me
As I am
