In Flames - Take This Life Lyrics




It's not so much the pain
It's more the actual knife
Pretending the picture is perfect
I cut myself to sleep
I close my eyes for a second
And curse my fragile soul
I scream to hide that I'm lonely
The echo calls my name

[Pre Chorus:]
If I ever, If I never
Make me understand the thought whatever
Make me see. Make me be
Make me understand you're there for me

[Chorus:]
Take this life, I'm right here
Stay awhile and breathe me in
Take this life, I'm right here
Stay awhile and breathe me in

The rain drops just beg to hit me
What now? Hasn't rained for days
No time to play hide-and-seek
I call on you to take me on
Break me down to pieces
Put me back, do it right this time
Struggling to fill this empty shell
Burn all my efforts
In the end it means nothing

[Pre Chorus]

[Chorus]

[x2]
These thoughts, burn a hole in my heart
These thoughts, will keep me free and

[Pre Chorus]

[Chorus]

    Тема суицида - не раскрыта!

  2. Zombl337

    Thank You In Flames for making this song, because once it hit my ears, the metal scene opened up to me.

  3. jmlinmn1978

    If you're here right now, reading this and thinking about checking out, this is for you. Please stick around. The world needs you. Stay a while.

  4. ste vo

    "I scream to hide that I'm lonely
    The echo calls my name" - is what he sings, now skip to the end of the song 3.30 where he screams and you will hear an echo, his name is Anders and im pretty sure it echoes his name. what do you think? I think thats fucking amazing little easter egg in there that im sure im the only one to notice it.

  5. Yuri Domnicheff

    pop- for girls. Music like a shit

  6. Rossana Colombo

    remembering beautiful times

  7. Maurício Hardcore

    THIS CHORUS IS NOSTALGIC FOR ME

  9. Captain Gigglez

    "These thots, burn a hole in my wallet"

  10. DamPedro

    0:23 - 0:39 is actually a rip-off of Lambada.

  15. Max Cabrera

    at the gates?

  16. Flying Piranha

    I miss when In Flames gave a fuck. I like everything up to and including Playground, but after that they REALLY started just phoning it in and making borderline pop rock devoid of any real power or emotion.

  17. Stevie Wolfe

    Lmao dude at the beginning looks like he's about to go "FUCKIN TRYING TO SLEEP ASSHOLES!!!"

  18. Felipe 1914

  76. F. Valtierra

    takes me back my college freshman year

  77. Brandon Wojciechowski

    What happened...fuck....6 years and everything changes and becomes so mainstream.

Fuckin SWEET concert, but I do wish In Flames was there. If they are touring with them now then I feel robbed lol.... Of Mice & Men are a new favorite of mine now though to.

  86. Doreen Travis

    Take this life!!!! AWESOME

  87. Nino Falletta

    2006 was a good year for metal. In Flames, Unearth, Bleeding Through, All That Remains, As I Lay Dying. that was an awesome year. I got to see As I Lay Dying and In Flames on the 2006 Sounds of the Underground concert with GWAR. Too bad the SOTUG tour is no more after 2007. I would've still been going to the concerts.

    Dustin Mcpherson

    Bunch of skinny jeans wearing queers... All Them Bands are shit metal

    gabrielgray

    i was at the 06 Sounds show as well, at the Guvernment/Kool Hause in Toronto, sick show, but had to rush security to see Gwar right after Cannibal corpse.

    fack ya

    saw them on tour for this album with devildriver and trivium

    Schnitzelschale

    I saw them on a festival this summer. They where actually ok when they played their older songs, but as soon as they started with their newer stuff the concert just turned into a huge shitshow, and I even saw alot of people just leave the concert area.

    ArtificiallyFlavord

    They're going on tour with All That Remains this year, you're welcome

  88. TARKUS NIGHTCORE

    dont like new in flames
    sounds generic to me

    David Preiss

    this is way better than sounds of a playground fading, even though there is a couple songs i dont mind from that one.. too bad jesper left and their bassist and drummer, sad times

  89. Jose Vargas

    I miss you IN FLAMES  xC

  90. FusRoDah2

    Back when Bjorn had hair!

  91. William Lobach
