Taking Everything (Album Version)

Taking Everything (Album Version)

Gerald Levert

To my heart
To my car
To my crib
To my kid
Everything

Never thought you bring me so much pain
Lord knows I tried to keep you happy girl, in every way
Out on the road doing my thang
Trying to keep you laced
Trying to keep a smile upon your face, girl
Was all my happiness in vain
Or did I place in you a little too much faith
Now nothing but memories
Never thought that this would be the price I had to pay

[Chorus:]
You took my heart you took my car
You took my crib
Got the nerve to take my kids
Got the nerve to take my kids
You took my love and my life
Girl you took my soul
Taking everything from me
Taking everything from me
You took my heart you took my car
And you took my crib
Tryin' to take my kids
Girl you took my love then you took my soul
Taking everything
Everything, everything
Everything, everything

And now I'm sitting all alone
Trying to figure out where you and I went wrong
You know it makes me want to cry
Just thinking about it
Makes me want to lay down and die
For the life of me I don't know how
That you could take for granted and disregard our sacred vows
Now nothing but memories
Never thought that this would be the price I'd have to pay

[Chorus]

Now I ain't never been no fool
I've always tried to keep my cool
I was faithful to you
Never bruised you or used you
Even though sometimes you make me want to
But I love you

You should try to understand
Girl I was your man
My life was in your hands, baby
My love was shinning over everything
It just wasn't part of your plan
No, no, no, no
What about the plans we had?
Now you're gone and I'm just gonna be a weekend dad, baby
Can I call you baby, or is that just a passing thing, baby
Listen to this sad song I sing, yeah
