Tracy Chapman – Taken lyrics

Should I try to take you in?
Another fool brought to the fold
With not a gaze or arms
But deathlike grip to hold
To hold
To hold
To hold

Should I try to take you in?
And hope for the prefect docile pet
Hope that you'll not defile or wreck my home
Sweet home
Sweet home
Sweet home

Here there's only faith no doubt
You can be taken anywhere
Here is where you choose the place
With pleasure and pain in equal share
A refuge for truth and deceit
Where all who come are taken in

Should I try to take you in?
Pretending what you have not felt
In passion sorrow sleep or death eyes closed
Eyes closed
Eyes closed
Eyes closed

Here there's only faith no doubt
You can be taken anywhere
Here is where you choose the place
With pleasure and pain in equal share
A refuge for truth and deceit
Where all who come are taken in

Should I try to take you in?
Who'll pity me if I forget?
It's said to be and not to be in love
Is to regret
Regret
Regret
Regret

Here there's only faith no doubt
You can be taken anywhere
Here is where you choose the place
With pleasure and pain in equal share
A refuge for truth and deceit
Where all who come are taken in

Should I try to take you in?
Who'll pity me in my regret?
For those who've never been in love
Need not forget
Forget
Forget
