Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand

So if you're lonely
You know I'm here
Waiting for you

I'm just a cross-hair
I'm just a shot away from you
And if you leave here
You leave me broken shattered alive
I'm just a cross-hair
I'm just a shot then we can die
I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say don't you know
You say you don't know
I say take me out

I say you don't show
Don't move time is slow
I say take me out

I say you don't know
You say you don't go
I say take me out

If I move this could this could die
If eyes move this could die
I want you to take me out

I know I won't be leaving here
With you

I know I won't be leaving here
With you

I know I won't be leaving here
With you

I know I won't be leaving here
With you

I say don't you know
You say you don't know
I say take me out

If I wane this could die
If I wait this could die
I want you to take me out

If I move this could die
If eyes move this could die
Come on
Take me out

I know I won't be leaving here
With you

I know I won't be leaving here
With you

I know I won't be leaving here
With you

I know I won't be leaving here
With you
