Grammar question: Just the way you are.(A title of a song)


I recently have doubt about this phrase: Just the way you are.    the way you are???    So that it means I can write a sentence as "I am the way, I did not change!" ?

The title is perfect English.   The full sentence is "I love you just the way you are".


Your phrase is usually said as "I am the way I am"  or even, to quote another song,  "I am what I am".

Or as Popeye would say it, "I yam what I yam."

Or "What will be, will be". "Que Sera, Sera"
