take me lyrics – john butler trio

“take me”

take it from me come take me home
i’ll be the one for you one for you one for you
trembling skin, right to the bone
bite into me i am ripe for the taking
twist me, turn me, throw me around
drunk in this potion of loaded emotion
beautiful beautiful beautiful lies lies lies all lies

take me, take me, take me
won’t you take me, take me, won’t you lord
take me, take me, take me
won’t you take me, take me, won’t you lord

something so warm, so soon the cold
you said you loved me yes you said you’d call me now
how can you go leave me here
hungry and hunting yes desperate and loathing
beautiful beautiful beautiful lies lies lies all lies
i can not stand this dumb look in your eye oh

take me, take me, take me
won’t you take me, take me, won’t you lord
take me, take me, take me
won’t you take me, take me, won’t you lord

could of been should have been
back and forth round again
round and round circles been waiting for you
oh my knees, you retreat
now i’m praying for mercy mercy mercy
i’m pleading with you oh

take me, take me, take me
won’t you take me, take me, won’t you lord
take me, take me, take me
won’t you take me, take me, won’t you lord
