• I am timid
    And I am oversensitive
    I am a lioness
    I am tired and defensive
    You take me in your arms
    And I fold into you
    I have insecurities
    You show me I am beautiful

    Love me or leave me just take it or leave it
    It's not that I'm needy just need you to see me
    Take me, free me, see through to the core of me
    Take me, free me, there will be no more pretending

    I am temperamental
    And I have imperfections
    And I am emotional
    I am unpredictable
    I am naked
    I am vulnerable
    I am a woman
    I am opening up to you

    Love me or leave me, just take it or leave it
    It's not that I'm needy, just need you to see me
    Take me, free me, see through to the core of me
    Take me, free me, there will be no more pretending

    Now I stand before you with my heart in my hands
    I'm asking you to take me just the way that I am

    Please lay down your arms
    Do you know me?
    Make me feel safe from harm

    Oh just take me, free me, see through to the core of me
    Take me, free me, there will be no more pretending

    I am temperamental
    And I have imperfections
    And I am emotional
    There'll be no more pretending Writer/s: CHRISTINA AGUILERA, SAM DIXON, SIA FURLER
