Take It For Granted

This song is by Boz Scaggs and appears on the album Slow Dancer (1974).

Take it for granted
You're making a mistake
Take it for what it is
But take it for God's sake

Take it from me
Lonely as can be
I'd love to
But I never dared to
If only I could make you see

Once a man stood by a wall
And watched his love across the beach
And though her loveliness could warm his heart
Her lips he could not reach

And nothing would he do
Nothing would he say
He just keeps it all inside himself
And saves it for another day

Then he heard a song
Sweetly over the wall
Singing its better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all

Take it for granted
Oh don't make that mistake
Take it for what it is
But take it for God's sake mmm

Take it from me
Lonely as can be
I'd love to but I never dared to
But if only I... I could make you see

Once a girl gazed out her window
At the moon above the sea
And as the breeze touched her face
The thought of him wouldn't let her be

Will he pass by
Or will this feeling just pass away
How am I to try and understand
What is this price I have to pay

Shall I turn my back to my pillow
Let the moon fall to the sea
And keep it all and not sleep at all
Or maybe I'll just dream

Take it for granted
You're making a mistake
Take it for what it is
But take it for God's sake oh

Take it from me
Lonely as can be
I'd love to but I never dared to
But if only I could make you see
