StayThe Way You Are

I am who I am
Thank God you never surrendered

Because when you brought me home,
Mom and Dad were shocked

I went for walks with your dog
and tried the thing with a tie

But they still had that opinion,
that I'm just a pimp who looses control

The others asked you:
“Does he fit to you? Can he even express himself?”

To stay above water,
I pushed people around in Taxi's

I tried a lot
Copied folders, sorted files

Even if it wasn't part of my orders,
I served my boss coffee

Internship here,
Internship there

Unfortunately I haven't matriculated until this day
Or studied math

For you to like me better
I would have tried everything darling

Chorus:

And then he said to me:
Let the others change
And stay as you are

Just like you are- like you are

Let the others change and stay as you are
I like you how you are
I need you as you are

You are who you are
Love is in your nature

Enough of the rules
Almost everyone tried to shape you
Since you've been born

Business and cash
Fitness and fashion
Are only part of thee torture

Stay as you are because for me
Your appearance is enrichment

And stay stubborn
Don't let them tell you anything
Because your figure is more than perfect
And your hair doesn't need fixing
I am just saying

I come from a different country
Does that suit your culture?

In the beggining,
no one was excited about us two

Forget about the hands on the clock,
Stay in your own lane

You have understood I'm staying,
That's why you're happily letting me go alone

I said to him:
Chorus:

And then he said to me:
Let the others change
And stay as you are

Just like you are- like you are

Let the others change and stay as you are
I like you how you are
I need you as you are

You know all my mistakes
and all detail

Even if I don't say anything
You know what's wrong

I only want that you don't forget:

Let the others change
And stay as you are

Just like you are- like you are

Let the others change and stay as you are
I like you how you are
I need you as you are
