James Blunt – I'll Take Everything lyrics

Oh these feet carry me far. Oh my body. Oh so tired.
Mouth is dry. Hardly speak. Holy Spirit rise in me.
Here I swear, forever is just a minute to me.
I'll take everything in this life.
I'll join everyone when I die.
Have my body. Have my mind. Have my coat. Take my time.
These I borrow. Borrow so far. Turn to dust. Fall apart.
Here I swear, forever is just a minute to me.
I'll take everything in this life.
I'll join everyone and understand.
'Cause all men die. 'Cause all men die.
I'll take everything in this life
I'll join everyone since I'm gonna die
I'll take everything in this life
I'll join everyone 'cause all men die

    Singer is weary from living and senses the end. Although his life has been long, it's is just a speck on the scale of eternity. He believes that in death he will become one with all of mankind as this is inescapable. He is not attached to the material acquisitions he may have made but rather to all the experiences he has been through, good and bad, hence the title, "I'll take everything." I believe he is alluding to the idea that even the experiences that bring him the most suffering are valuable because ultimately they will lead his soul to salvation.
