Take It All Lyrics

Didn't I give it all
Tried my best
Gave you everything I had
Everything and no less

Didn't I do it right?
To let you down
Maybe you got too used to
For having me around
Still how can you walk away
From my tears
It's going to be an...

    This song in my opinion is about a girl in a relationship with a guy and she tried her best to be good to him to love and care and nothing could ever please him, she did everything for him and he didnt appreciate it , so she says take it all , take my love either way it doesnt matter because he never really cared ...

    this song is about a girl, who falls for a guy hard. harder then the guy even fell in the first place. they understood each other in every way. this boy was her first love, although he had many not so good qualities, she didn't care, she ignored what everyone said and loved him anyway. she gave him her world, her life and told him everything.. in return he left.. said she was too much to handle and just walked away. they're connected by friends, and no matter how much she tries, every guy she ends up thinking about she compares to him. she tries to build herself up, pretend she doesn't care and act like it doesn't hurt.. but it does and she knows it. she's too weak and she imagines that he can see through all of her lies, her fake smile.. for being together, loving her and knowing everything about her, it's hard for her to hide. she does everything to make him see, but he just doesn't seem to care and she just wishes she could give up.. but she knows that no matter how much she tries, he will always be a part of her..

    Here is my take about the song as i relate happen in my life currently. The singer deeply fall in love with a guy but he has broken her fragile heart in many ways; despise her with mocking words and actions to make her weak and guilty. And she was put to take all the blames about how a bad girl, a betrayal, witch and all sort of evil deeds person she is. He never loved her actually but seeking for sweet revenge on her. She felt used, a totally fool and the wounded cud not heal. How love blinded a person's heart and mind.

    He's somekind playing games and has twisted love over her. A cruel intention is between it so to speak. At the end, she will be seen as a cheap whore that willing to fulfill any men fantasies and desire which will break her pride and dignity. She's not kinda person that will mess around and she believes true love is a sacred thing people should keep in heart. And soon, when he finished with the games he played, he'll leave her for a new girl he secretly dating.

    He thought she was too naive and innocence not to see the real picture whats been in his mind lately. So, she step a foot behind and saying, "Darling, you can take it all, my broken heart and my love away. Just leave me alone. Don't you see the pains and wound it cost me. It's ruining my heart. I'm letting you go, you can be with any other person you insist and adore. I cud not give what you need. i had enough of this crazy lil thing called LOVE. No more dramas and hurting each other. I can't take it anymore, darling. It hurts my soul badly."

    If you love something or somebody, let it go free. If it doesn't come back, you never had it. If it comes back, love it forever. A special bond between soulmates are unconditional love, respect/trust each other, fight what best for each other and highly compatible. Nothing compares to you, my love. Loving you is a wonderful thing happened to me. All's forgiven.

    I'm a straight guy going through relationship drama and I relate with this song. It mixes well with When A Man Loves A Woman by Percy Sledge. Particular lines which stand out for me are: 1) "Didn't I give it all? I tried my best" 2) "maybe I should leave to help you see that it doesn't get better than this" 3) "so is it over? Is this really it? You're giving so easily. I thought you loved me more than this" 4)"everything I do is for you"

    It's about how a guy thinks that she isnt good enough for him and the girl is thinking she let him down and didnt let him see her real self.

    It's about a guy who's breaking up with the girl despite all the things she'd done for him. She tries persuading him to take her back but she had decided that it's no use to do that. So 'Take it all, with my love' she says.
