Lyrics
You wanna take, take, take, take, take it away from me.
Take it away from me.
You can't wait, wait, wait, wait, wait till I'm stumbling.
Go get carried away.

GO!

And the fears sets in, in an instant.
Too much of myself gets exposed.
This is where I go at my weakest,
When I don't have to be scared to tell the truth.

Tend to do my best when everything goes wrong.
That's why sad songs make me happy, cause I don't have to feel alone.

You wanna take, take, take, take, take it away from me.
Take it away from me.
You can't wait, wait, wait, wait, wait till I'm stumbling.
No, you've got me wrong.
Oh the nights are long with no one else around.
You wanna take, take, take, take, take it away from me.
Go get carried away.

It's never what you've done, it's what you've done lately.
Who cares what you're saying, if no ones listening.
You don't have to like me, but you're gonna respect me.
I that came from nothing, leave hope in my wake.

I got no regrets, but have my days with doubt.
To those left in sadness I'll be the one to lead you out.

You wanna take, take, take, take, take it away from me.
Take it away from me.
You can't wait, wait, wait, wait, wait till I'm stumbling.
No, you've got me wrong.
Oh the nights are long with no one else around.
You wanna take, take, take, take, take it away from me.
Go get carried away.

I reserve my right to feel uncomfortable reserve my right to be afraid.
I make mistakes and I am humbled every step of the way.
I want to be a better person. I wanna know the master plan.
Cast your stones, cast your judgement, you don't make me who I am.
[x2]

God help those who help themselves, and forget about everyone else.
You lost your nerve, you missed the point.
God help those with open hands, may they never feel burden again.
Yeah I'll stand up for those who can't.
I'll close the distance.
