"Take this for granted" as written by and Daniel James Sanders Brad Richard Campbell....

I mean, come on,
You hope I learn from this,
I'll right this wrong,
You don't deserve torture such as this,

I'll dig a hole and get this buried,
You understood but forget I said it,
And another thing that will divide,

Before words escape me (escape me),
Let me say this properly,
I miss you,

Take you for granted, I miss out,
Take us for granted and I will miss out,
I miss you,

Come on, come on, come on,
I know we're bigger than this,
Come on, come on, come on,
There's no where that is better than this,

I'll call a hearse to get this buried,
Misunderstood just forget I said it,
Yeah and another thing, can I subscribe,

Before words escape me (escape me),
Let me say this properly,
I miss you,
I miss you,
I miss you,
Let me say this properly,
Before words escape me
Let me say this properly
I...

Take you for granted, I miss out,
Take this for granted and I will miss out,
Take you for granted, I miss out,
Take us for granted and I will miss out,
I miss you,
Take this for granted, I miss out,
Take you for granted and I will miss out,

I miss you,
I miss you,
I miss you!

    General Commentsuch a wonderful song, i guess it describes a guy and his girlfriend leaving him...and he doesnt want to let her go, and he feels like shes trying to prove a point. and he admits his taken her for granted, but now he understands how much she means to him and how much he misses her.

    General CommentI always think about Taking the girl for granted when they were together, not acknowledging her as much as he should have and he has realised it after she has broken up with him. And he misses her and is sorry

    Thats what i rekcon

    Song FactTrivic: For the most part, Take This For Granted was something I remember that came together pretty quickly for us. I brought the intro riff and verses in to band practice, and Robby and I gelled on them pretty quickly. Dan and Brad hopped in on the chemistry, and it felt like an hour later we were screaming “I miss you” on repeat.

    I can't speak for Dan lyrically, but I feel like this tune always represented the home-sickness that the four of us would experience while we were away doing what we loved most.

    This song remained a staple song in our live set for the next ten years and still today reminds me of home and the loved ones that we are lucky enough to have in our lives.
