As You Are ~ Garfunkel & Oates

Sit back, you don’t have to work so hard
It makes me tired to watch you try
Relax, you already played your cards
And I know which ones are a lie.

It makes me really sad to see
The things you think you have to be
Just to be enough for me
When you already are.

Why can’t you just look at you
In the same way that I do?
Through all that’s false and all that’s true
I like you, as you are.

I know that you can get sad sometimes
I see it mostly when you smile
Let go of all of your supposed crimes
Just be with me for a while.

I know this may be hard to hear
But all your tricks are really clear
I see right through your slick veneer
To the secret life you hide

Why can’t you just look at you
In the same way that I do?
Through all that’s false and all that’s true
I like you as you are.

Take me in
Believe me when I say
You’re more than just okay
You’re perfect as you are.
