03. Take Me (As You Found Me)

Dark Is The Way, Lights is a Place
by Anberlin



 

Ground is shaking underneath, now that you’re here
Body’s skipping beats when you appear
The world is on fire, since you’ve come here
All I ever desired is here with me.

You’re here with me


Take me as you found me,
Take me as you found me
Or leave me tonight.
Leave me wanting,
Leave me wanting
The rest of your life

Who’s gonna drain my blood, now that you’re gone.
Whose going to right all my wrongs now that you’re gone

Who’s gonna tear my flesh with a siren song?

Now that you’re gone,
And now that you’re gone.

Take me as you found me,
Take me as you found me
Or leave me tonight,
Leave me wanting,
Leave me wanting
The rest of your life

Take me as you found me,
Take me as you found me
Or leave me to die
Leave me wanting,
Leave me wanting
The rest of your life,

The rest of your life.

You left me stranded,
Oh, now that you’re gone.
Don’t leave me standing,
Here all alone

Take me as you found me,
Take me as you found me
Or leave me tonight,
Leave me wanting,
Leave me wanting
The rest of your life

Take me as you found me,
Take me as you found me
Or leave me to die
Leave me wanting,
Leave me wanting
The rest of your life,
The rest of your life



Behind the Song:
"This was Brenden O’Briens favorite song on the record, which meant so much to Christian and I.

Whose going to drain my blood is a reference to my neighbor Tim who was on dialysis. His X wife loved him so much that she would take him to the hospital once or twice a week for his procedures. They weren’t even together and yet she cared that much.

I thought this song was going to be the biggest of our career, that didn’t happen, but it does remain my favorite on DITW." - Stephen Christian
