you can’t take it when you go lyrics – dave mason

don? t try to possess me
i? ll slip from your grasp
the things that you seek
have already p*ssed
in rushing to own everything that? s in sight
nothing is left
no, not even your life

you can? t take it when you go
that? s something that you oughta know
love isn? t counted in gold
only in heart and soul

lies can? t hurt
at least that? s what you say
but there? ll be confusion
as sure as night turns to day
truth is a feeling you just can? t deceive
life? s an illusion
when you don? t believe

you can? t take it when you go
that? s something that you oughta know
love isn? t counted in gold
only in heart and soul

repeat

over and over
day after day
life? s precious moments are wasting away
if dreams are the schemes on whichfuture? s are made
dream on sweet dreamer
til you reach your grave

you can? t take it when you go
that? s something that you oughta know
love isn? t counted in gold
only in heart and soul
