Take All I’ve Got

Take All I’ve Got is my first post. I don’t think I’ve got the mix of the guitar and vocal quite right yet. I wrote the song last summer for a wedding that I was invited to sing at. I was actually the wife’s gift to her husband (not as kinky as it sounds). I figured the least I could do was write a corny love song. I thought the protagonist was totally pathetic. Now I think different. I wish I was more like him.

We can take it slow
Baby I don’t know
Just what pace you like
Guess I’ll find out right
Cause I don’t mind to wait
Forever’s not too late
Cause I’ve got the time
To wait till you are mine
You can take all I’ve got
Make me what I’m not
Take all I am all I am
For you I will change
From black to white and back again
Take all I’ve got, all I’ve got
For you I will change
From pop to punk and back again
Take all I’ve got, all I’ve got

How Can I make you see
You’re the one for me
I’d walk around the world
To make you my girl
And I’d give you my heart
Should yours fall apart
Commit any sin
For you to let me in
You can take all I’ve got
Make me what I’m not
Take all I am all I am
For you I will change
From church to jail and back again
Take all I’ve got, all I’ve got
For you I will change
From prep to goth and back again
Take all I’ve got, all I’ve got
For you I will change
My hair, my clothes, my face, my name
Take all I got all I’ve got.

    Thank you Noah for your quality craftsmanship for the past 15+ years. Going back to hHead’s “Fireman” days right through to your current album “Names of Shapes That Don’t Exist”.

    Days of booking “Noah’s Arkweld” at Humber College are still in my mind. Nothing will top your kindness in the summer of 2009. Your acoustic performance during Bob & Portia Chambers’ wedding was exceptional. “Take All I Got” is the gift that will keep on giving.

    You are one of Canada’s most talented artists.
