TAKE AWAY
by WILLIAM THOMAS KINSEY

TAKE AWAY THE SUN
AND THE FLOWER WILL DIE
TAKE AWAY THE MOTHER
AND THE BABY WILL CRY

TAKE AWAY THE MOON
AND THE NIGHT TURNS BLACK
TAKE AWAY THE RAIN 
AND THE GROUND WILL CRACK

TAKE AWAY TOMORROW
AND PROMISES DEAR
TAKE AWAY THE MEMORY
AND LIVE IN FEAR

TAKE AWAY THE DREAMS
LIE AWAKE AND STARE
TAKE AWAY THE HOPES
AND WHO WOULD CARE

TAKE AWAY MY LOVE
AND I'LL TELL YOU, FRIEND
YOU CAN TAKE MY SOUL
I WON'T NEED IT THEN

I COULD DO NO MORE
THAN LIVE IN STRIFE
TAKE AWAY MY LOVE
AND YOU'VE TAKEN MY LIFE
