Lyrics

I stopped looking for something
Cause nothing ever can along
I had my children and a Della Reese song
But you came around and you promised a peaceful kind of life
Telling me everything would be all right

You gave me love and you took it back

You raised your hands in darkness
The bruises I would cover up
Your voice it cut me like a knife 
I could't keep watching my children in a storm
Babies need a place to be safe and warm

You gave me love and you took it back
You gave me love and you took it back

Please take something off these shoulders
Oh lord the weight of this world is hard to bear
Oh the madness it only gets bolder and older
And it don’t care, it don’t care

You gave me love and you took it back
You gave me love and you took it back

I've learned to stop waiting
Waiting for an answer to come
I gotta raise these kids and do what's gotta be done
You know you ruined me for love, for true love down the road
All I'm good for because of you is a heavy road.

You gave me love and you took it back
You gave me love and you took it back
You gave me love and you took it back
You gave me love and you took it back

Took it back, You took it back, You took it back
