for the taking lyrics – from first to last

“for the taking”

i’ve got the world crashing down
down around my feet.
[x2]

time is only temporary, this will not last forever
(around my feet, come crashing down again)
[x4]

before you take me home, there’s just a few things i wanted you to know
take a deep breath, it’s been an hour
and we’ve been walking for a million miles tonight
don’t fight the things i know you want to say to me.
so please, don’t make it harder than it has to be.
don’t make it harder than it has to be.
don’t make it harder than it has to be.

time is only temporary, this will not last forever
(around my feet, come crashing down again)
[x4]

before you take me home, please don’t tell me what i don’t wanna know.
wipe your eyes dry, you’ll see clearer.
the end of this is coming close to us, don’t rush
i’ve heard that line a million times from you
and it’s true, the midnight sky has another shade of blue.
the midnight sky has another shade of blue.
the midnight sky has another shade of

my heart is yours for the taking.
my heart is yours… for the taking!

the world is falling like a final curtain to my feet,
and the wish for your applause is taking over me.
[x2]

[note: there is a demo version of this song with words “take your first breath”
instead of “take a deep breath” in the first verse and “a new shade of blue”
instead of “another shade of blue” in the second verse]
