And when you said I could not stay with you
That‘s not the way you would have want it be
Convince yourself that everything is alright
Cos it already is.

Don‘t sell your heart and break just anyone
I want to run with you through moorland fields
Convince yourself that everything is alright
Cos it already is
Cos it already is

So take your lessons hard and stay with him
And when your car crash comes don‘t be mislead
Convince yourself that everything is alright
Cos it already is
Cos it already is

So take your lessons hard and stay with him
And when your car crash comes don‘t be mislead
Convince yourself that everything is alright
Cos it already is
Yeah it already is.

So take him home.
So take him home.
So take him home.
Take
Him
Home
(Take Him Home!)
Take
Him
Home
(Oh My God!)

    General Commentthe title doesn't really have anything to do with the song. pete yorn told it this way at a concert -- he was in california and he bought a used guitar, brought it home and wrote this song in about four minutes. afterwards, he said he noticed two things about the guitar. First, the neck had been cracked in half and glued back together, which meant the guitar store had screwed him. Two, on the back of the guitar someone had written "Nancy". As he put it "somewhere out there is a chick named Nancy who broke her guitar -- this one's for you"

    General Commenti always thought he knew someone named nancy and she was getting it bad. i'm sure that's what alot of people thought if they hadn't heard your story. it's kinda like Blink 182's 'Adam's Song' i like your version better though. this song does have a cool point and it's so fun to listen to.

    General CommentWow, I love the whole guitar story! I was wondering who Nancy was..:D.

    Anna118k, I've been realizing they've been selling his album for low places just about everywhere. I guess they really want to get him exposed (as he should be!).

    General CommentI really truly love this song. When I was taking the SATs this year (not the high school ones, the fake ones, I was in eighth grade) I made a mix of songs I'd listen to secretly. This was the opening song on the CD, and every time I hear it, it takes me back to that week, which was one of my best weeks in my whole life, I was testing with my favorite class, sitting close to the guy I liked, in the library with food, and I got out of other classes. Good times. Thank you, Pete Yorn.
