  • I'll take you just the way you are
    Imperfect words inside the perfect song
    I feel you closer than you are
    But I've been waiting far too long
    Too long

    It's my declaration
    To anyone who's listening
    You're my inspiration
    As I stand alone against the world
    'Cause you love
    And you bleed
    And you stole my soul
    To set me free
    It's my declaration

    Do you care what I believe
    ('Cause I'm still breathin')
    Or that I wear your heart upon my sleeve
    Sometimes I think you never knew
    The only truth I see is you
    It's you


    And are there any words to say
    That I would ever mean enough
    When the light runs from the day
    Will the darkness be too much
    Will I ever be enough


    It's my declaration
    So tell me you can hear these words tonight

    It's my declaration Writer/s: DAVID COOK, GREGG WATTENBERG, JOHN RZEZNIK
