Allen, Lily - Take My Place Lyrics




As I lay down on the bed
Trying to come to terms with what has just been said
I don't know where I should look or what to say
Is this happening to us today?

If I could then I would scream
I'd wipe the tears off of my face
Wake me up if it's a dream
This is more than I can take
I'd give everything I own
If someone else could take my place
Could someone else please take my place?

How can life be so unfair?
I can't breathe, in fact I'm choking on the air
It's all over, I can see it in your eyes
Hold my hand, don't ever leave my side

If I could then I would scream
I'd wipe the tears off of my face
Wake me up if it's a dream
This is more than I can take
I'd give everything I own
If someone else could take my place
Could someone else please take my place?

If I could then I would scream
I'd wipe the tears off of my face
Wake me up if it's a dream
This is more than I can take
I'd give everything I own
If someone else could take my place
Could someone else please take my place?

  21. therese farrell

    This song is so close to the bone for me .... Memories of such sadness ... But such a beautiful song xxx

  22. Colin Ok

    The verses are great but the chorus ruins it.

    Rachael Broderick

    Colin Ok I can definitely see how you could feel that way but this is how I see it.... imagine being told the most difficult thing you have ever had to hear. Generally you are so shocked you can't move. You're just still. Then you get angry and you have to do something. The music starts soft and whispers to you. When it gets to the chorus it erupts and the lyrics state she would scream if she could. I lost my daughter two years ago and the other night I was crying because I missed her. I looked up songs about miscarriage and every detail with this song says what I feel when I miss my Alice Noelle. Of course we all have our own opinion. Just thought I'd share my viewpoint on it. :)

    Colin Ok

    Sorry to hear of you loss and I'm glad this song can help you through such a difficult time <3.

    Rachael Broderick

    Colin Ok I appreciate it!

  23. Kevin Noneya

    I absolutely love this song!!!

  24. Vault-tec

    this is about her baby she lost

    Jose Botero

    I saw 2 lovers at the end ...  someone about to be killed ... someone watching news about Gaza ... and yes, a mother watching her baby dying ... only a woman could see the latter, thanks

    Jose Botero

    sorry to mislead with my bad English ....in the contrary is my favourite song of the album ... when I heard the song for the first time I could not tell what it was about so I make my own ideas ... then I found out in one of her interviews that it was about her unborn child, then I liked the song even more!!!!
