when you take, you take the very best of me
So I start a fight cause I need to feel something
And you do what you want cause I'm not what you wanted
Oh what a shame, what a rainy ending given to a perfect day
Just walk away, no use defending words that you will never say

I love this song! So very true...our bruise are something we all have in common...life bruises us all...but it does make for better conversation..
Sweet Kiester has a very cool version of this song that is partly in French posted that is well worth checking out!
I have a tale to tell
Sometimes it gets so hard to hide it well
I was not ready for the fall
Too blind to see the writing on the wall
A man can tell a thousand lies
Ive learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned, till then
It will burn inside of me
Stand upYou've got to manageI won't sympathizeAnymoreAnd if you complain once moreYou'lll meet an army of meYou're alrightThere's nothing wrongSelf sufficience please!And get to workAnd if you complain once moreYou'll meet an army of meYou're on your own nowWe won't save youYour...
