Say whatever you have to say, I'll stand by you.
Do whatever you have to do, to get it out and not become a reactionary
To hurt the ones you love you know you never meant to but you do
Oh yeah you do

Be whoever you have to be, I won't judge you
Sing whatever you have to sing to get it out and not become a recluse
about your house, come out
I know you never meant to but you do
Oh but you do

Still I need your sway, because you always pay for it
And I, and I need your soul because you're always soulful
And I and I need your heart, because you're always in the right places

And take whatever you have to take, you know I love ya
Come however you have to come, and get it out and get it out

Take it out on me, take it out on me
I'll give it you all, I give it you all,I give it
I give you all I give it you all, yes I will give it you all

'Cause I need your sway, because you always pay for it
And I, and I need your soul because you're always soulful
And I and I need your heart, because you're always in the right places

Oh yes I will, I will give it you all

Still I need your sway, because you always pay for it
And I, and I need your soul because you're always soulful
And I and I need that heart, because you're always in the right places.

    General CommentAh. This song. Being my alltime favorite Kooks song ever. -insert smile here-
    To me its about being in love with someone who hurts you, possibly cheats on you. Unintentionally somehow. And though the other person is deeply hurt they still cannot deny that they need the one who hurt them.
    That may not be the real meaning, but that is the joy of music. You give it your own.

    "Tttttake it out on me, take it out on me
    i'll give it you all, i give it you all,i give it, i give you all i give it you all, yes i will give it you all "

    That part gives me chills.
