Graham Parker – Take Everything lyrics

B G#m E F#
Take every, take every, take everything
Take every, take every, take everything

C#m E C#m F#
Don't tell me that you're above it, you might as well learn to love it
C#m E C#m B F#
It's just a natural obsession, keep your mouth full

The sky is thick with the fuse wire You think it's safe in your room
Hoping the very next boom won't be the big one

B G#m E F#
Take everything you can and run, that's the way it's done
B G#m E F#
What's on your shoulders must weigh a ton, that's for having fun
B G#m E F# E
Shoot all of those bullets out of that gun, now before they explode inside you

Come home with a pack of dioxin, we need brand names on our toxins
For people who's lives are boxed in, just like ours are

You don't have to shoot your mouth off, but baby, please don't cough
You don't have to sell your soul just to admit it

Take everything you can and run, that's the way it's done
Don't think of this world baby it's gone, that's for having fun
You might not be here when the sun, gets pulled out of the sky above you

Instrumental section

Take every, take every, take everything
Take every, take every, take everything

Don't tell me that you're above it, you might as well learn to love it
It's just a natural obsession, keep your mouth full

Take everything you can and run, that's the way it's done
What's on your shoulders must weigh a ton, and blots out the sun
Shoot all of those bullets out of that gun now before they explode inside you

Take every, take every, take everything
Take every, take every, take everything (3 times)
