Bobby Bare — Take Me As I Am (Or Let Me Go) lyrics

Why must you always try to make me over
Take me as I am or let me go
White lilies never grow on stalks of clover
Take me as I am or let me go.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/bobby-bare-take-me-as-i-am-or-let-me-go-lyrics.html ]
You're trying to reshape me in a mold love
In the image of someone you used to know
But I won't be a standing for an old love
Take me as I am or let me go.

--- Instrumental ---

You've tried to change me ever since you met me
Take me as I am or let me go
If you don't want me like I am forget me
Take me as I am or let me go.

Then take me as I am or let me go...
