As I Lay Dying - Take What's Left Lyrics




I took what you gave me, destroyed it all
I had to lose everything to know that I was wrong
And now I see what was true all along
A void in me now that everything is gone

(Now that everything is gone)

The emptiness can be a source of clarity
Taking away a way for us to hide
Always revealing

No choice but to rebuild
No voice, no peace, no love, no home
Nothing left to hold
Nothing left but hope

Take my broken frame
What still remains free from the chains (free from the chains)

Nothing left to hold, nothing left but hope

Like hunting for prey that we don't even need to track
So easy to follow what's next, we are left with only one path, one path

No choice but to rebuild
No voice, no peace, no love, no home
Nothing left but hope

Take my broken frame
What still remains free from the chains (free from the chains)
Take what's left in me, what's worth saving
No matter how much time it takes

From merely hope we are brought back to life
From broken bones we revive

Take what's left and create
Take what's left and then rebuild

(You had every reason to give up on me
But you stood and waited when everyone ran away)

I took your gifts, destroyed them all (destroyed them all)
And then lost everything to know that I was wrong (that I was wrong)
But you still carried me when you could barely walk (you could barely walk)
You reminded me, I was never too far gone
(Take what's left)

Take my broken frame
What still remains free from the chains (free from the chains)
Take what's left in me, what's worth saving
No matter how much time it takes
Take my broken frame
What still remains free from the chains (free from the chains)

Take what's left
Take what's left and rebuild

    Nope. This is As I Lay Dying

    The kings of metalcore.

    tim m

    @Nati የጨርቆሱ This is not classic AILD style. If you believe that you haven't been around long enough to know why they are "The kings of metalcore"

  12. Oliver Torres

    Thank you guys. Been a fan for 10 years. I needed this song. Bless you guys.

  13. Dentonan

    Looks like ive found another band for my playlist.

  14. Think as Coffee

    Friend : How many time you hear this song
    Me : yes

  15. Think as Coffee

    Nothing left

  16. Think as Coffee

    This is my drug

  17. TheMasterchibre

    the song started so fuckin good, so much power and melodies and good stuff... until this part : 1:17. So disappointing

  18. Fun Gaming

    🔥🎤🎸🥁

  19. HaPpyIaMsaD

    A.I.L.D. has gotten me through some of the worst things you can imagine happening, in my personal life. Tim's story of redemption, and the band's forgiveness and acceptance is so inspiring. Hands down their best album to date, the best release of 2019, and the most powerful and amazing comeback release, of any band I personally listen to. I sincerely hope they read this, and see the positive impact they have, despite the struggles. We are all human. We all make mistakes. We can all choose to let those mistakes define and ultimately ruin us, or take the lesson learned and do something better. This... is Tim doing something better! Forgiveness is the key to redemption.

  20. Lisa Mazz

  25. Victor Chevalier

  26. Tim Mills

    Dude, I’ve been listening to these guys since 05’ never thought anything would beat frail words collapse but hot damn this might be the one. Album is nothing but amazing in my opinion. Best band ever!!!

    Manny Blackstar

    Parkway Drive
    Architects

  27. Lucezar Colombo

    But I thought there's Nothing Left

  28. sunskyriver

    To me, this kind of song and music is incredible. The lyrics have always held more power and truth than any other genre in my opinion. Amazing album. Keep it up AILD! Such a crazy story of the band in and of itself. This is true metal!

    Rump Tump

    I agree

    Davi Melgarejo

    I agree

  29. Ethan Pope

    Take my Broken Frame, what remains free from the chains. Take what's left in me, what's worth saving no matter how much time it takes... such a good chorus and powerful lyrics throughout the whole album

  30. Jacob Elwood

    Ridiculous

  31. Ricky Smart

    [Intro: Tim Lambesis]
    I took what you gave me, destroyed it all
    I had to lose everything to know that I was wrong
    And now I see what was true all along
    A void in me, now that everything is gone
    Now that everything is gone

    [Verse 1: Tim Lambesis]
    The emptiness can be a source of clarity
    Taking away a way for us to hide, always revealing
    No choice but to rebuild, no voice, no peace, no love, no home
    Nothing left to hold, nothing left but hope

    [Chorus: Josh Gilbert & Tim Lambesis]
    Take my broken frame
    What still remains free from the chains, free from the chains

    [Verse 2: Tim Lambesis]
    Nothing left to hold, nothing left but hope
    Like hunting for prey that we don't even need to track
    So easy to follow what's next, we are left with only one path, one path
    No choice but to rebuild, no voice, no peace, no love, no home
    Nothing left but hope

    [Chorus: Josh Gilbert & Tim Lambesis]
    Take my broken frame
    What still remains free from the chains, free from the chains
    Take what's left in me, what's worth saving
    No matter how much time it takes

    [Bridge: Tim Lambesis]
    From merely hope, we are brought back to life
    From broken bones, we revive
    Take what's left and create
    Take what's left and then rebuild

    [Interlude]
    You had every reason to give up on me
    But you stood and waited when everyone ran away

    [Verse 3: Tim Lambesis]
    I took your gifts, destroyed them all
    And then lost everything to know that I was wrong
    But you still carried me when you could barely walk
    You reminded me I was never too far gone

    [Chorus: Josh Gilbert & Tim Lambesis]
    Take my broken frame
    What still remains free from the chains, free from the chains
    Take what's left in me, what's worth saving
    No matter how much time it takes
    Take my broken frame
    What still remains free from the chains, free from the chains

    [Outro: Tim Lambesis]
    Take what's left
    Take what's left and rebuild

  32. Aaron Wells

    That tasty riff leading into the first verse sounds a bit like Amon Amarth

  33. Nikolay Rusanov

    Classis AILD, love it!

  34. Dustin Varner

    That last chorus with the double bass into the half time makes my DICK hard son! So good

  38. immoral existence

    These guys have literally reignited my love for metalcore. I completely abandoned this genre for years but have found myself replaying this album day after day. Love it, I fell 16 again haha

    sunskyriver

    Me too brother. I used to listen to this when I was 17 in high school and then when I heard Tim got out of prison and the original band was getting together to make another album, I was blown away. What a story that is, and they come out and release this banger album? Who wouldn't love metalcore again!

  39. a z a t h o t

  49. Pale Horse

    King of the underdogs. When aild fell so did the metalcore family, it's almost like becoming a forgotten generation, imagine that..best of the best being forgotten. Ha! Don't think so. Everybody get out a pen n paper and start taking notes, We only get 1 aild. Their not the only ones though..follow heartsupport. 🖤

    Dannie 27

    Its like a recycled riff with added bonuses. Kind of like a salute to their past and a big horns up to their present state as a band which is glorious with this banger of a song and album!

  62. zyhke772

    This is one of my favorite songs on the album, the intro is very old school metalcore!

    Callum Hogwood

    My 30th today aswell.

    \m/ TheyCallMeDirty \m/

    Happy Bday fellow fan. My bday is on Nov 18th which is also the same day I will be seeing AILD live in Dallas TX.

    Within Sight

    @\m/ TheyCallMeDirty \m/ dude that's amazing!!! Happy early birthday!

  78. Durlabh Dauti Chakma

    This is dope

  79. Doomking Armageddon

    So they just decided to drop the whole album now? I ain't complaining just curios

    Robert AZ

    Been advertised for weeks now. Sept 20 release. It’s 2019 man. You’re the internet. Look it up.

  80. Occifer FigPucker

    If Tim had his way, nothing would be left of his ex.

    Avannas

    @Joey Bingham No pussies allowed in here. This comment is bangin'!

    Avannas

    @Xander Casias By sitting in a cell for 4 years?

    Avannas

    ​@Xander Casias My best friend just got done doing 4 years. He just got out 2 weeks ago. Trust me, it's actually taking away from society much more. There is a small percentage of people in prison that ACTUALLY NEED TO BE LOCKED UP.

    regul8or

    Avannas if you think it’s about being a pussy then you have missed the point....but I’m not gonna explain what I mean because you prob won’t understand and it will be a waste of time.

    Stolen Record666

    I mean that was kind of the whole point of the album. Tim pretty much took ownership of what he did, realized he almost did something extremely fucked up and is now trying to pick up the pieces.

  81. KG _Th3MuffinMan

    Take what's left? There is NOTHING LEFT!!

    Jeffrey Neece

    Justin Th3MuffinManU ironically “nothing left” is the name of another one of their epic songs ! Lol

    KG _Th3MuffinMan

    @Jeffrey Neece twas the point my dude XD

    Vladferrum

    SOUND OF TRUTH!!

  82. Anxious Vids

    Feeling 16 again.Lol

    Dávid Tóbis

    Me too, becouse I am.

  83. eurovision kid

    I'm still very very sad bcs they won't come to Serbia💔💔💔🇷🇸

    OblivionFall

    @Scott Heslin "They've literally got better things to do"

    Playing live shows for an audience IS one of the main things that bands do... I understand being annoyed at this guy who is begging for attention, but not at the expense of logic.

    Scott Heslin

    @OblivionFall they've got better things to do than search comment sections on youtube videos for the requests of desperate fans. You should try logic as well as not being tone deaf.

    Scott Heslin

    @Lazar Pantelic leave me alone you bi-racial petri dish.

    Scott Heslin

    @Lazar Pantelic have fun with that you gatekeeping shithead.

    Scott Heslin

    @Lazar Pantelic what's wrong bro? Nothing worthless & edgy to say?

  84. Andrew JC

    Perfect way to wake up at 5:30am

    a perfect way to wake up the neighbours too

    Kent Allard

    I just teared up a little.

    Damir Sarazhakov

    I think it's gift to whom like old stuff. "Take what left" sounds better to me :)

    Cbl izy

    @KG _Th3MuffinMan fuck you ..warm up..haha dick, atleast your good

    So. I’m gonna be that guy. Parkway is one word. When abbreviating Parkway Drive it’s just PD.
