You've got to give a little, take a little,
and let your poor heart break a little.
That's the story of, that's the glory of love.

GIVE - 19
TAKE - 19

They bleed on both sides!

Watching every motion in my foolish lover's game
On this endless ocean finally lovers know no shame
Turning and returning to some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion as you turn around and say
Take my breath away

GIVE - 19
TAKE - 20

Tracy Chapman:

Give me one reason to stay here
And I'll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here
And I'll turn right back around
Because I don't wanna leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind

GIVE - 20
TAKE - 20

And our love will surely grow

Billy Joel:

It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday,
And the manager gives me a smile
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see
To forget about life for awhile.

Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh won't you please take me home?

Take on me

Take me on

I'll be gone
in a day or two

Paul Simon:

You take two bodies and you twirl them into one
Their hearts and their bones
And they won't come undone
Hearts and bones
Hearts and bones
Hearts and bones
Hearts and bones

Take my hand - take my whole life too,
For i can't help falling in love with you.
-Elvis Presley

She pulls the eyes out with a face like a magnet
I don't know how much more of this I can take
She's filing her nails while they're dragging the lake

I walk into this room
Oh, all eyes on me now
But I do not know the people inside
They look straight through me, these eyes
Seeking more wisdom than I have to give away
Realize, realize what you are...
- Dave Matthews Band / What You Are

Crush me
Come on
So much you have given love
That I would give you back again and again
Meaning I'll hold you
And please let me always
- Dave Matthews Band / Crush

Singing mercy will we overcome this
Oh one by one could we turn it around
Maybe carry on just a little bit longer
And I try to give you what you need
- Dave Matthews Band / Mercy

Give me a kiss to build a dream on
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss

If I give my heart to you
I must be sure
From the very start
That you would love me more than her

You never give me your money
You only give me your funny paper
And in the middle of negotiations
You break down

I give her all my love
That's all I do
And if you saw my love
You'd love her too
I love her

I...
should have realized a lot of things before
If this is love you've got to give me more
Give me more
Hey hey hey
Give me more

Beatles, FTW!
