"Take My Love" as written by and Aaron Brooking ; Dessner Brian Elmquist....
I know something
You're no liar
You're the beauty I admire
Burning love, hope, and desire
You're the woods at night on fire

Oh I miss you when it's cold out
Church bells ring I hear you sing out
An old broken record turning
You're a wild melody

I know I might not be he one you take

Take my love

When you told me you can't sleep
Count your sins instead of sheep
Count the ways that you feel weak
But that is not what I see

You're no wreckage, you're a fire
Straight the sky by your own power
Sounding loud above the water
You're a wild melody

I know I might not be the one you take
I've got a heart that may not fade away

Take my love

Reach the windows, I see him
Has your bed gone up in flames?
Hear that roof cry as it caves
Of its power on your face

No one's had you hide before
Felt that breathing on your floor
Felt that move at your front door
Felt that blood inside you boil

(Take my love)
You're no sunset
You're no liar
You're the beauty I admire
(Take my love)
You're the woods at night on fire
Burning love, hope, and desire
(Take my love)
Girl I miss you when it's cold out
Church bells ring I hear you sing out
(Take my love)
You're a broken record turning
You're a wild melody

Take my love

    My InterpretationThis song is about unrequited love in the best way there is. Most songs about loving someone who may not love you back is sad and hurtful.

    This song is having the courage to love someone despite how they may feel in return. When you love someone everything about that person becomes greater. All of the parts of that person that to them, seem weak or broken - to you are their greatest strengths and attributes.

    I think the singer is telling this person that even though, she may not choose him in the end to be with - he chooses to love her anyway. And that's the bravest thing a person can do. Love someone completely despite the outcome.

    "I know I might not be the one you take. I've got a heart, it ain't afraid to break. Take my love, take my love"
