"Taken" as written by and Tracy L Chapman....
Should I try to take you in?
Another fool brought to the fold
With not a gaze or arms
but deathlike grip to hold
To hold [Repeat: x3]

Should I try to take you in?
And hope for the perfect docile pet
Hope that you'll not defile or wreck my home
Sweet home [Repeat: x3]

[Chorus]
Here there's only faith no doubt
You can be taken anywhere
Here is where you choose the place
With pleasure and pain in equal share
A refuge for truth and deceit
Where all who come are taken in

Should I try to take you in?
Pretending what you have not felt
In passion sorrow sleep or death eyes closed
Eyes closed [Repeat: x3]

Here there's only faith no doubt
You can be taken anywhere
Here is where you choose the place
With pleasure and pain in equal share
A refuge for truth and deceit
Where all who come are taken in

Should I try to take you in
Who'll pity me if I forget?
It's said to be and not to be in love
Is to regret
Regret [Repeat: x3]

[Chorus]

Should I try to take you in
Who'll pity me in my regret?
For those who've never been in love
Need not forget
Forget
Forget
