Lyrics

You Take Love

Written By: Dead Letter Box

In time we drew these borders.
In time we drew farther.
Now I sit and wonder.
If we'll be back together.
Now do you, care that I never let you go? Don't you see that I'm sinking?
You take love for granted.
Now all I can see is your smiling face.
And you smile.
Now I focus my anger.
Thoughts of you walking with strangers.
Now do you care that I never let you go. You hurt my mind with these images.
You take love for granted.
