MUNA - Taken Lyrics




Pulled up, quarter to 11
Waited a minute 'til you went in
We talked and then we stopped talking
Put on a song and we listened
I know that I make you nervous
I do it half on purpose
You know I think you're precious
Yeah, I think you're a good person

So why do I wanna blow up your life?

I'll be a very good girl
I won't even think about it
I'm just feeling like I can't help it
I know you said you had a girlfriend
I just want it if it's taken
If it's taken

Dad left when I was 11
Mom said it was 'cause he couldn't
Keep from touching other women
Some things have a way of sticking
And now I'm standing in your kitchen
You said you told her you were leaving
And I can't help thinking
I hate you 'cause you're just like him

So why did I have to blow up your life?

I'll be a very good girl
I won't even think about it
I'm just feeling like I can't help it
I know you said you had a girlfriend
I just want it

I just thought that if I could take you from her
Maybe then it would prove that I'm worth something
Now I'm alone and I'm hurt
Wishing I'd taken you at your word
When you said that you were taken

I'll be a very good girl
I won't even think about it
I'm just feeling like I can't help it
I know you said you had a girlfriend
I just want it if it's taken

I know you said
I just want it

  3. Naomi Alem

    my new favorite song

  4. meg

    If I'm correct in that the line goes " I just wanted - I just thought that if I could take you from her" then these girls are out if this world. Freaking aposiopesis in a song lyric? My god. Either I have to listen to more music or these girls are on their own level.

  5. meg

    What a song. I feel like the video shoulda had the three playing separated from each other with split screens here and there - in fact different desert hotels as well for each - and then only in the end they're playing together.

  6. Dave Griffiths

    I freaking love this band

  7. Pamela Cobaugh

    This song hits different

  8. SADXSERENADE

    I'm here since "loudspeaker", MUNA is my salvation. Whenever I feel misunderstood or sad I listened to this band, and I swear it's saves me every time. So, thank you. 🖤

  9. thedoublechip

    This is a beautiful song and a wonderful music video.

  10. Olga Lebedeva

    THEY ALL ARE CUTE, COOL AND FRESH LIKE NORTH WIND.

  11. david baty

    good song. but what is up with her pants?

  12. Haxoma

    Wtf how have I never heard of you guys till now!?? This is amazing and way too underrated ...every song in this album is amazing ❤

  13. id gaf

    COME TO SOUTHEAST ASIA PLEEEEAAAAAASSSE

    Suraj Arvind

    id gaf malaysian here 💁🏾‍♂️, how about u?

    btw i really hope they come up with a saves the “world tour” and visit sea soon!

  14. Perry Robitionate

    So, a totally unsolicited, wholly self-centered confession/testimony/whatever: I am probably at the opposite end of the demographics continuum of fans of MUNA from most. (I'd put good money on it.) So my Life-perspective is 'different'. I'm neither young, nor gay nor female, nor, nor, nor... I consume an enormous amount of new music each week. Usually about four albums' worth. I am constantly looking for the artist (almost exclusively female) who's gonna take me over, blow up my world, excite me, make me fall in love with the possibilities of music again, allow me to disappear into musical bliss. Can't possibly describe how plainly happy I've been since I came across them. The playlist I have of their two albums has been on constant rotation for weeks, and I've watched the video for 'Number One Fan' so many times, I could probably recreate it on paper, shot-by-shot, moment-by-moment. LOL So a huge thank-you to MUNA (and their always stellar rhythm section!). I'm really, really glad I found you. Right; out of the confessional and back into the shadows for me... : )

  15. Our Galaxy

    I love your new album! I felt so seen and like you reached into my emotions and pulled them out. But I'm sad there aren't CC/Subtitles for your music videos this time. The videos for your first album have them, and it's so helpful for my disability and Accessibility needs. I'm sure other people feel the same. Would you consider adding CC/Subtitles, or enabling community contributions so someone else could? Thanks for your music and helping us feel our feelings <3 Ellory <3

  16. cárter Callz

    I just saw them in concert & I forever love MUNA!!!
    I love you Naomi 😭❤️

  17. cherrygal

    when she say "I just thought that if I could take you from her, maybe that would prove that I'm worth something, now I'm alone and I'm hurt" *DAMN, MA, I FELT THAT*

  18. Siempre Jorly

    I have not idea why you aren't famous when your music is so freaking perfect ♥️ MUNA this tells you a Venezuelan girl that listen your music since 2017. LOVE YOU

  72. catnipevrdn

    Pulled up quarter to eleven
    Waited a minute till you went in
    We talked and then we stopped talking
    Put on a song and we listened
    I know that I make you nervous
    I do it half on purpose
    You know I think you're precious
    Yeah I think you're a good person

    So why do I wanna blow up your life?

    I'll be a very good girl
    I won't even think about it
    I'm just feeling like I can't help it
    I know you said you had a girlfriend
    I just want it if it's taken

    Dad left when I was eleven
    Mom said it was 'cause he couldn't
    Keep from touching other women
    Some things have a way of sticking
    And now I'm standing in your kitchen
    You said you told her you were leaving
    And I can't help thinking
    I hate you 'cause you're just like him

    So why did I have to blow up your life?

    I'll be a very good girl
    I won't even think about it
    I'm just feeling like I can't help it
    I know you said you had a girlfriend
    I just want it, I just thought that

    If I could take it from her
    Maybe then it would prove that I'm worth something
    Now I’m alone and I'm hurt
    Wishing I'd taken you at your word
    When you said that you were taken

    I'll be a very good girl
    I won't even think about it
    I'm just feeling like I can't help it
    I know you said you had a girlfriend
    I just want it if it's taken

    I know you said
    I just want it if it's taken

    And just like that, the world was saved

  76. alina rodriguez

    Can't wait to hear the full album released. It's really nice song, has different sounds but it's still good. I think I didn't have enough to get over stay away or who, well I have something new to hear every single minute of my day

  77. CPTNAshe

    I wasn't prepared for this amount of YEE-HAW. 🤠

  78. woami

    I don’t know how but this band just does it. Like the first album was so spot on and then this is another level! Simply incredible!!!!!!!!!

  79. Jacqueline Vieira

    Uauuu...I was wating the continuation...really great...and tomorrow the album is gonna be out...I think...really happy ...Muna never stop...

  80. Conrad Schwellnus

    I worked for Sony Music a few years back, and tried feverishly to get radio stations to give MUNA a go. They still get better and better with each release. Wake up please, world 💁🏻‍♂️⭐️

  81. Tomás Martínez-Vivanco

    So talented and so underated.

  86. Marco Carrillo

    Every song you put out is amazing, your power...

  87. Zahrotul Muna Husnayati

    Gosh, I have the same name.😄😄😄

  88. swanstep

    Great vibe about this band & yet another lovely song.

  89. Stefarooh

    I didn't think you gals could top "About U", but from the four songs you have dropped so far it very much sounds like there is no jinx on your sophomore album. This could very well end up being my album of the year if the remainder of the songs are as strong as the four already dropped.

  90. Guilherme Guckert

    THIS IS SO GOOD OMG

  91. Ponen Longchar

    Really an incredible song. Love everything about it. The tune, the video and the vibe. Though its a pop track, the small guitar parts particularly in the chorus (love the slide on the strings) gives a somewhat slow rock vibe to the song. And the last 30 seconds of the video is the perfect ending, from the beautiful Josette throwing her hat away to Katie looking out at the distance.
    Can't fault this group. Best pop group at the moment hands down.

  92. Muhammad Qubali

    I can’t... bop after bop. I’m ready to wake up tomorrow and simply let the album fuck me up.

  93. Lionscars

    So beautiful omg

  94. felix navarro

    It is a concept! I asked that in their last video;) Yay!

  95. Jonna Sarah

    another BANGERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

  96. Derek Esposito

    Omg this is gonna be album of the year, every song is so good!

  97. Jacob Lundy

    BEAUTIFUL. you guys can write a bridge like no one else I know

  98. ONE FIVE

    This sweeter than honey pie with maple syrup atop:) Cowboy hat is chill like a Texas beauty
