However Many Takes It Takes


We're swimming in the deep end
I find out where your faith begins
You're waiting for an answer that's acceptable

The current sweeps you out to sea
And it keeps you guessing helplessly
You're praying for a savior who's exceptional   

Someone who'll lift you from your knees
And save you, and hand you the keys
And offer you the kingdom of your dreams    

But nothing's ever as it seems

You find yourself further down stream

Alone, save for the echoes of your screams

Ah, honey, fairy tales are prone to tease

(Eb chord in background, but bass goes: C D Eb F G Ab G F Eb)

Well candles burn you warm and safe
You lock your door and control your space
And curtains drawn, you think that you're impenetrable

But demons they don't live outside
They burrow deep where they can hide
Inside a safe, you will still feel vulnerable

You draw a bath and pour some wine
You drink yourself into another time
Where you feel truly free

The water's rising overhead
And you wake to find yourself in bed
You're gasping, for a breath that's hard to breathe

Ahh, honey, dreams are rarely what they seem

Oh, how, e-ver, many takes, it takes

Well, step outside into the sun
 Let it dry your eyes and run around
Feel the warmth underneath your skin

The clouds will soon move in again
You can't expect to always win
You got to, take it as it comes

The marching bands and beating drums
Play familiar songs for the alum
We all got scars, but we don't like to show them

Sometimes it's better to be strong
We all got to be moving on
You got to walk a million miles

Ahh, honey, go walk them with a smile.

Oh, how, ever, many takes, it takes.
