"Take Me As I Am" from Jekyll and Hyde


from the musical "Jekyll and Hyde"

by Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse



Jekyll-     Sometimes I see

(Sonny)   Past the horizon

              Sure of my way

              Where I am going. . .

              But where's the prize

              I have my eyes on?

              Where?  There is just no knowing!

              And when despair tears me in two

              Who can I turn to but you?

              You know who I am. . .

              Take me as I am. . .

Emma-    Look in my eyes

(Brenda)  Who do you see there?

              Someone you know?

              Or just a stranger?

              If you are wise

              You will see me there

              Love. . .is the only danger!

              Love. . .meaning me

              Love. . .meaning you

              We'll make our one dream come true!

              You know who I am. . .

              Take me as I am!

Both-       Though fate won't always do what we desire

              Still we can set the world on fire!

              Give me your hand. . .

              Give me your heart. . .

Jekyll-     Swear to me we'll never part

              You know who I am. . .

Emma-    You know who I am. . .

Jekyll-     This is who I am!

Emma-    This is who I am!

Both-       Take me as I am!
