Dave Days - What Does It Take (Acoustic) Lyrics

I woke up
In the middle of the night
Out of luck
With this girl on my mind
She got away now
I'm trying to explain how
I fell in love
That's what I like to call it
But not enough
It's like I never saw it
Drifting away now
I'm finding words to say
But it all goes
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
But it all goes
Whoa whoa whoa whoa

What does it take to get you
If I never met you
I wouldn't have ran
Across the country like
I'm out of my mind
What does it take to hold you
When I'm here without you
I don't know where to start
I gotta find you and your heart
Before it falls apart

I stayed up
In the dead of the night
I made plans
If they turn out right
You'll close your eyes and
Think about the times when
Think about it
We fell in love
But didn't try to say it
Knew what it was
The moment that we played it
We all lose sometimes
I can't get her off my mind
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
I'm finding words to say
But it all goes
Whoa whoa whoa whoa

What does it take to get you
If I never met you
I wouldn't have ran
Across the country like
I'm out of my mind
What does it take to hold you
When I'm here without you
I don't know where to start
I gotta find you and your heart
Before it falls apart

What does it take to make it real
The world still spins and I'm still feeling
Your hand right next to mine
I play it back a thousand times
I wish I took a photograph
For every moment that we laughed
I'm hung up and can't relax
Yes she's so far away
What does it take to get you

What does it take to get you
If I never met you
I wouldn't have ran
Across the country like
I'm out of my mind
What does it take to hold you
When I'm here without you
I don't know where to start
I gotta find you and your heart
Before it falls apart
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
Before it falls apart
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
Before it falls apart

  23. alex alvarez

    What guitar is that!

    Peter Wong

    I think that's a bass

  24. Denise The girl with the guitar

    Hahaha the gibson les paul with the automatic tuning system <3 Love the acouctic version! Perfect

  25. bdpchamp

    wow you went ballistic on him for no reason. He made a valid statement, if something is acoustic then it shouldnt be autotuned, period. Hes not hating, hes not jealous, and im sure he enjoyed the video as a whole, like i did, but hes merely pointing out that if Dave wanted to label this as "acoustic" than it wouldve been optimal for him to leave out autotune altogether.

  26. bdpchamp

    holy shit hahahaha "views" my friend

  27. DaveDaysCrazed

    like you could do any better? ur just jealous of Dave. he is trying to be different and original and you don't like that, you cant deny that Dave is untalented or that this video is good.. .why don't you leave and go to a channel where there is actually something to hate on.

  28. Reen Azrina

    my fav song!

  47. Shirley LaPlante

    dave days has been my my favotie since the very beginning!

  48. Finn Kobler

    Yeah, all you have to do is match the lyrics to the chords PERFECTLY, do acapella (no auto-tuned),and come up with a perfect musical composition for this. It's as easy as 1-2-3 -.-

  49. Offbeat Bryce

    Technically you have to be able to sing a little bit to use autotune.

  50. SixStringsBroken

    Those computerized tuners.
    .-. Me gusta

  51. Rob Gucker

    No, he's right. Acoustic music is music made using instruments who make sounds by only acoustic means.

  52. Sam Stopps

    Cool but not accoustic.. At all really.

  53. KeenanDelton

    he is harmonizing with himself you uneducated wang..

  54. Rubloks

    Then lets see you do it plzzzz :D

  55. Happy Tree

    if you have a freak'n autotune, you can do this too

  56. manon

    I love u!

  57. Victor MEYERIE

    This version is so you! I really like you style of making music!

  58. Julia

    Hey why isn't the original version of this song in the google play store? It only has the acoustic version....

  59. Copper

    Wasn't a joke... I actually have a guitar. I can't prove it but u can't prove I DON'T have a guitar either.

  60. Copper

    It wasn't a joke. I actually know all the lyrics and have a guitar. I know I can't prove it, but u can't prove I don't have a guitar or don't know the lyrics.

  61. The Train Fan

    Was that tuner legit??

  62. Elizabeth Harrison

    who has time for homework with dave days around

  63. Caroline Alice

  69. Sarah Bingham

    Hi Dave, I've watched you from your humble beginnings cause someone told me that you looked a lot like my little brother ( which you do a bit) :) . I laughed and was cheered up by your quirky songs and humour. You taught me that nothing is impossible. You had a dream and you made it happen even when people told you that you were crazy. Thanks Dave. :)

  70. Wizards9517

    nice electric guitar, bro dawg

  71. Brex

    Boy You'll Forget guitar lesson on my channel!

  72. the rocker

    jokes are supposed to be funny..

  73. Ralph Jordan

    Unfortunately you picked the wrong audience for clever jokes

  74. Copper

    I wanna know the music part so I can play this on MY guitar!!! This song is AMAZING!!!!!!!!! I already know the lyrics, I wanna know the guitar part now!

  75. b-dizzle houchin

    Never thought distorted guitar and piano would go together but i stand corrected

  76. Taha Lewan

    Your argument is invalid.

  77. eyes can't hear


  78. Idieyidot

    Okay I give up -,-

  79. Chsse Brown

    You don't get the joke.

  80. Idieyidot

    you don't get the point , Lol

  81. Chsse Brown

    Impossible. You couldn't have listened to this 129733767699001 times because the video only has 100,326 views. Jeeeeeez!

  82. SixStringsBroken

    What is the tuning on that guitar? I could be crazy but the low E sounds like it's cranked down a whole octave.

  83. Dennise Gardaya

    Eto ba yung sa voiceless?O_O
