I gave all the giving and I took all the taking
I gave all my love to you and I took all your hurt
I treated you so good but you treated me like dirt
They say love is give and take now my poor heart is breaking
I gave all the giving and I took all the taking
I always gave you everything that I knew how to give
You always took advantage of me you knew I would forgive
I treated you too good for my own good now I'm alone and left forsaken
I gave all the giving and I took all the taking
The giving and the taking have caused my heart to break
I've given all that I can give and I've taken all that I can take
[ guitar ]
The givng and the taking...
