(Yeah) oh
(Yeah)

I feel you crumble in my arms down to your heart of stone
You bled me dry just like the tears you never show
Why don't you take what you want from me?
Take what you need from me
Take what you want and go
Why don't you take what you want from me?
Take what you need from me
Take what you want and go

I never needed anything from you
And all I ever asked was for the truth (all I ever asked was for)
You showed your tongue and it was forked in two
Your venom was lethal, I almost believed you (almost believed you)
Yeah, you preyed on my every mistake
Waited on me to break, held me under hopin' I would drown
Like a plague, I was wasting away
Tryna find my way out, find my way out (find my way out)

And it finally came the day
I start giving my heart away
For Heaven sakes, my bones will break
But you never own my soul, no

I feel you crumble in my arms down to your heart of stone
You bled me dry just like the tears you never show
Why don't you take what you want from me?
Take what you need from me
Take what you want and go
Why don't you take what you want from me?
Take what you need from me
Take what you want and go

I took them stones you threw, made chains for the crew (ice)
I brought up ten hoes, this coupe only made for two (yeah)
They all ran through it, it ain't nothing left to do
I need some more reasons to live out this evening (straight up)
I've been sippin' forever and just taking whatever
Hoping, thinking whenever you'll be back around
Let's go our ways, whichever
You say how is however long
'Cause you know I never be alone

Love (yeah)
Shorty gon' back (shorty gon' back)
Need it on sight (need it on sight)
Crack it all back (crack it all back)
Give her that pipe (give her that pipe)
All of my cash (all of my cash)
Shawty went bad (shawty went bad)

I feel you crumble in my arms down to your heart of stone
You bled me dry just like the tears you never show
Why don't you take what you want from me?
Take what you need from me
Take what you want and go
Why don't you take what you want from me?
Take what you need from me
Take what you want and go

Take it all away
Why don't you (take what you want, take what you need)
Take what you need from me, yeah
(Take what you want)
Why don't you (take what you need)
(What you need, yeah)

    My InterpretationThe song is about a toxic relationship in which the persona starts to revolt with their couple, putting on your feelings against the poisonous girl. The actions taken by her are highlited in the first Malones's part:

    "[...] You showed your tongue and it was forked in two
    Your venom was lethal, I almost believed you
    Yeah, you preyed on my every mistake
    Waited on me to break, held me under hopin' I would drown [...]"


    At a certain moment, in the Travis's part, it's explicit that persona abandoned/broke up with girl, starting to live based on alcohol, parties and bitches while waiting for the girl to come back to him:

    "I took them stones you threw, made chains for the crew (ice)
    I brought up 10 hoes, this coupé only made for two
    They all ran through it, it ain't nothing left to do
    I need some more reasons to live out this evening (straight up)
    I've been sippin' forever and just taking whatever
    Hoping, thinking whenever you'll be back around
    Let's go our ways, whichever [...]"


    At long last, with the Ozzy's refrain and Malone's conclusion, after get something off one’s chest all your disappointment, the persona still begging her to take what she wants from him, money or heart, anything to end the love that turned into pain.

    P.S - Im training my english, sorry for mistakes
