Verse 1:

Don't go changing, to try and please me

You never let me down before

Don't imagine?. you're too familiar

And I don't see you anymore

I would not leave you in times of trouble

We never could have come this far

I took the good times, I'll take the bad times

I'll take you just the way you are
Verse 2:

Don't go trying some new fashion
Don't change the color of your hair
You always have my unspoken passion
Although I might not seem to care

I don't want clever conversation
I never want to work that hard
I just want someone that I can talk to
I want you just the way you are.

I need to know that you will always be

The same old someone that I knew

What will it take 'till you believe in me

The way that I believe in you.
Verse 3:

I said I love you, and that's forever
And this I promise from the heart
I couldn?t love you any better
I love you just the way you are.

(Saxophone solo)

(back to second half of verse 2,
