Take It All Away

Album: The Midsummer Station (2012)
  • There was a shot in the dark
    I was caught by surprise
    There was a hole in my heart
    There were tears in your eyes
    And there was nothing to say
    'Cause you made up your mind
    And so I guess what you meant
    When you left was goodbye

    So if you're gonna go
    And leave me in a lonely gray
    I won't let it show
    Until you finally float away

    You gotta know that you tear me up
    When you say you wanna take it all away, take it all away
    You tear it up when you say
    You wanna take it all away, take it all away!
    You were the one, and it was enough
    To be the one you were dreaming of!
    You were the one and we called it love
    And now you take it away, take away!

    I felt a pain in my chest with your kiss on my cheek
    And as I tried to digest the words I couldn't believe
    I'm left with nothing to say with my heart on my sleeve
    Making it easy to hurt, and even harder to breathe

    So if you gonna go
    And leave me in the lonely gray
    I won't let it show
    Until you finally float away

    You gotta know that you tear me up
    When you say you wanna take it away, take it away
    You tear me up when you say
    You wanna take it away, take it all away!
    You were the one, and it was enough
    To be the one you were dreaming of
    You were the one and we called it love
    And now you take it all away, take it all away!
    You take it all away, you take it all away

    You gotta know that you tear me up
    When you say you wanna take it all away, take it all away
    You tear me up when you say
    You wanna take it away, take it all away!
    You were the one, and it was enough (it was enough)
    To be the one you were dreaming of (dreaming of)
    You were the one and we called it love
    And now you take it away, take away!
    You take it all away, you take it all away Writer/s: ADAM R. YOUNG, ALLAN PETER GRIGG, EMILY MEREDITH WRIGHT, NATE CAMPANY
