Take Me (As You Found Me)

Album: Dark Is the Way, Light Is a Place (2010)
  • The ground is shaking underneath, now that you're here
    A body's skipping beats when you appear
    The world is on fire, since you've come here
    What if every desire is here with me?

    You're here with me
    You're here with me
    You're here with me

    Take me as you found me
    Take me as you found me
    Or leave me to die
    Leave me wanting
    Leave me wanting
    The rest of your life

    Who's gonna drink my blood, now that you're gone
    Who's gonna ride up my roads now that you're gone?
    Who's gonna tear my flesh with a siren song?
    Now that you're gone
    And now that you're gone

    Take me as you found me
    Take me as you found me
    Or leave me tonight
    Leave me wanting
    Leave me wanting
    The rest of your life

    Take me as you found me
    Take me as you found me
    Or leave me to die
    Leave me wanting
    Leave me wanting
    The rest of your life

    The rest of your life

    You left me stranded
    Oh, now that you're gone
    Don't leave me standing
    Oh, here all alone

    Take me as you found me
    Take me as you found me
    Or leave me tonight
    Leave me wanting
    Leave me wanting
    The rest of your life

    Take me as you found me
    Take me as you found me
    Or leave me to die
    Leave me wanting
    Leave me wanting
    The rest of your life
    The rest of your life Writer/s: Stephen Christian Arnold, Christian Edwin Mcalhaney, Joseph Milligan, Deon Rexroat, Nathan Russel Young
