By Billy JoelDon't go changing to try and please me,
You never let me down before.
And 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 take you just the way you are.
I need to know that you will always be,
The same old someone that I knew.
Ah, what will it take till you believe in me,
The way that I believe in you?
I said I love you and that's forever,
And this I promise from the heart.
I could not love you any better,
I love you just the way you are.
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.
