Ani Difranco ~ As Is

Ani DiFranco has over twenty albums under her belt. Her unique folk type style and poetic lyrics have made Ani a stand out artist. She founded Righteous Babe Records in her conquest for freedom from the mundane mainstream labels. Little Plastic Castle was her highest charted album featuring the well writen hit "As Is".

As is by Ani Difranco lyrics

You can't hide behind social graces,
so don't try to be all touchy feely.
'Cause you lie in my face of all places,
but i've got no problem with that really.

What bugs me is that you believe what you're saying.
What bothers me is that you don't know how you feel
What scares meis that while you're telling me stories,
you actually believe that they are real.

And I've got no illusions about you
Guess what?
I never did.
And when I said - when I said I'll take it -
I meant, I meant as is.

Just give up and admit you're an asshole.
You would be in some good company.
And I think you'd find that your friends would forgive you,
or maybe I am just speaking for me.

'Cause when i look around I think this - this is good enough
and i try to laugh at whatever life brings.
'Cause when i look down I just miss all the good stuff.
and when i look up I just trip over things.

And I've got no illusions about you
Guess what?
I never did.
When I say - when I say I'll take it -
I mean, I mean as is...as is.
