Taking Everything Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

To my heart
To my car
To my crib
My kids, everything

Never thought you bring me so much pain
Lord knows I tried to keep you happy, girl in every way
I'm on the road doing my thing, trying to keep you laced
Trying to keep a smile upon your face, girl

Put all my happiness in vain
Or did I place in you a little too much faith
Now I'm left with memories
Never thought that this would be the price I had to pay

You took my heart, you took my car
You took my crib, yes, you did
Got the nerve to take my kids
Got the nerve to take my kids

Took my love and my life
Girl, you took my soul
Taking everything from me
Taking everything from me

You took my heart, girl, 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 wanna cry
Just thinking about it makes me wanna 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 I'm left with memories
Never thought that this would be the price I'd have to pay

You took my heart
Girl, you took my, my car
Tryin' to take my crib, girl
You got the nerve to take my kids
Got the nerve to take my kids

And take my love, love, love, love
And my life, girl, you took my soul, yeah
Taking everything from me
Taking everything from me

You took my heart, my car
My crib, my, my kids, my kids
My love, soul

Everything
Everything, everything
Everything, everything

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

You should try to understand, girl, I was your man
My life was in your hands, baby
My love was shinning over there
But this 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, babe
Listen to this sad song I sing, yeah
What about the ring, what about the ring? Oh, ho

Now you going away in my car, girl, you can have the crib
But won't you give me back my kids
How am I supposed to live?
Oh baby, without love, without love, babe
She given me

My life, all my life, I'd thought we'd live forever
Said we'd be together
And you would never, never, never, never, never
Never, never, ever, ever, leave, me

Take my
Heart, crib, cars, kids, love, life, souls from me
My cars, heart, crib, kids, my kids and now
You would never, never, never leave me

Oh, no, oh oh, so oh
Why? How could you
Ah, You took everything
