The Way I Am

by Ingrid Michaelson

"The Way I Am" music video by Ingrid Michaelson

If you were falling, then I would catch you.
You need a light, I'd find a match.

Cuz I love the way you say good morning.
And you take me the way I am.

If you are chilly, here take my sweater.
Your head is aching, I'll make it better.

Cuz I love the way you call me baby.
And you take me the way I am.

I'd buy you Rogaine if you start losing all your hair.
Sew on patches to all you tear.

Cuz I love you more than I could ever promise.
And you take me the way I am.
You take me the way I am.
You take me the way I am.

My heart melts everytime I listen to this song. Not only do I enjoy listening to the lyrics which are so meaningful, I love the musical arrangement done on this piece that makes it so acoustic. I'm a sucker for such music. I can literally put everything down at that very instant, close my eyes and absorb every ounce of the audible orgy that is emitted through those speakers. Fortunately, I've never heard Fly FM play this or any of Ingrid Michaelson's songs while I was driving. :P

Her songs have found its way into well-known series such as Grey's Anatomy and One Tree Hill too. No wonder I love watching these shows that little bit more than the rest. The songs that they manage to include so seamlessly into certain episodes make it that much more pleasurable to watch. It actually sets the tone for certain situation which makes you feel as if you're part of the show. Grey's Anatomy may not be as great this season but with such great music, it is still very much bearable.

I'm not exactly sure what genre this music falls into. I guess some people call it indie-pop or alternative music but I like to refer to them as elevator music or the ones you will hear in a cafe or bistro. I mean it in a good way when I say it sounds like elevator music, in a serene and classy way. If I would to open a cafe or bistro, this would be the type of music I will play along with musical pieces by Michael Buble, Josh Groban, Norah Jones and the likes. I can see myself sipping on some tea or coffee, with a good novel in my hand, on a beautiful afternoon and all these music playing in the background. Lovely, isn't it?

In fact, this is the type of song I would like to be played during my wedding reception rather than having loud amateur singers causing irreversible deafness to all my guests. Yes, I've done some planning for my future wedding, mostly what to do's and what not to do's. Not like I'm walking down the aisle anytime soon. :P

Didn't you find the music video cute and interesting too? Well, I did. Just love the part where the kids clapped their hands in sync with the music. Alright, the clowns can be a little scary but let's focus on the good stuff here, shall we? The song may be a little short but it's definitely one you will cherish every second of. Trust me, you'll be hooked after listening to it just once! Well, I did. ;)
