"Gonna Take It" as written by and John Charles Wiltshire Butler....
Smile your lovely smile
And tell me of tomorrows for a while And hold my hand
And tell me, tell me, tell me you understand
'cause I know your name
And there ain't no one else
I'd trust now with this shame
So, so good woman, open up your heart
And I will take it back to the beginning I will

Yes I am gonna take it
Gonna take it
Gonna take it
Right back from the start
Gonna take it
Gonna take it
Gonna take it right back from the start

'cause I am weary and I am torn
Been fighting a war that started before yes I was born
And now before it tears my heart clean apart
This is my proclaimation
This is me

She said taste the spice
Don't just hang it up in the corner
Where you think it looks nice
And ah say what needs to be said
'Coz you're health man is your wealth
And you're a long time dead

Yes I am gonna take it
Gonna take it
Gonna take it
Right back from the start
Gonna take it
Gonna take it
Gonna take it right back from the start

    General CommentThis song is amazing. The lyrics are off though:

    Smile, your lovely smile
    Tell me of tomorrows for awhile
    And hold my hand,
    and tell me, tell me, tell me you understand

    Oh, I know you're name
    and there ain't no one else
    I trust now with this shame
    So, come on and open up your heart
    and I will take it back to the beggining
    I will

    Yes I am
    gonna take it
    gonna take it
    gonna take it, right back from the start

    gonna take it
    gonna take it
    gonna take it, right back from the start

    Yes I am weary, I am torn
    Been fighting a war that started before
    yes, i was born
    And now before it tears my heart clean apart
    this is my proclamation,
    this is me

    and she said, "taste the spice,
    don't just hang it up in the corner
    where it looks nice."
    And the same, well, needs to be said,
    'Cuz your health man is your wealth,
    and you're a long time dead.

    Yes I am,
    gonna take it
    gonna take it
    gonna take it, right back from the start

    gonna take it
    gonna take it
    gonna take it, right back from the start

    gonna take it
    gonna take it
    gonna take it, right back from the start

    gonna take it
    gonna take it
    gonna take it, right back from the start.

    General CommentThese lyrics really speak to me because they're talking about a love that isn't new but the speaker wants to keep the love pure like when you first fall. My favorite line in the song is when she says "taste the spice, don't just hang it up in the corner where it looks nice. Fantastic.
