lyrics

DON’T LET THEM TAKE IT
Barry Fetterolf / James House

You can cover it up
With lies, and drugs, and booze
Hide it behind walls
Pride and the so-called truth

All you can do is hold on
The best that you can

Don’t let them take it, the love that you need
Don't let them take it, the things you believe
Don't let them take it, time that's yours to grieve
Whatever you do
Don't let them take it from you

You can turn and walk away
Wear the soles off your shoes
You can stand up and fight
'Till there's no fight left in you

All you can do is hold on
The best that you can

Don’t let them take it, the love that you need
Don't let them take it, the things you believe
Don't let them take it, time that's yours to grieve
Whatever you do
Don't let them take it from you

Don’t let them take it
Don’t let them take it
Don’t let them take it

Whatever it is
It's yours and only yours to give

Don’t let them take it, the love that you need
Don't let them take it, the things you believe
Don't let them take it, time that's yours to grieve
Whatever you do
Don't let them take it from you
