"Take a Bow" as written by and Greg Laswell....
Take a bow 'cause you played your heart out
And take your time with working the rest out
And try and stay out of your head
I have seen you invent the damnedest things there

Oh, so what?
Maybe she could not really ever see you through herself
What does that change about you or her?
Try and stay out of your head
I have seen you invent the damnedest things there

Maybe down the road I'll see you in a blur
From the speed of light you've had with her
Maybe down the road I'll see you in a blur
See you in a blur

Don't lean back, my friend
There's not much there that will push you on
Use your stride, slow
And break it up over time

And try and stay out of your head
I have seen you invent the damnedest things there
Try and stay out of your head
I have seen you invent the damnedest things there

Take a bow

    General CommentI think the lyric is "Try and stay out of your head; I have seen you invent the damnedest things there." If you listen closely, it sounds far more like a 'd' than a 'b' and it makes more sense, too.

    General CommentThis song is written by Greg to himself, as an encouragement. Further lyrics reveal that there was a fall-out in a relationship. He warns himself to stay out of his head because he can get carried away: "I have seen you invent the damnedest things there"either about why the relationship didn't workout or something else.
