Taken For Granted

about

This track was originally commissioned to be created for my friend Rez for a college project for Ryerson University. The lyrics are straight forward regarding feeling taken advantage of. The music conveys a melancholy feel to match the lyrics. Spiced up with some funk and the use of a glockenspiel sample.

lyrics

(Yeah) Everyday I wake up and make sure I treat you right
(Yeah) Yeah, but you're not doing the same baby why
You know that you've been neglecting me my boo still
I make sure you know you're my world
'Cuz my love is strong, and your love is strong
So cutie why you doing me wrong, yeah yeah

All I ever want from you, just show me that you love me too
You know that you got me, please don't take it for granted
All I ever want from you, just show me that you love me too
Baby you got me, please don't take it for granted
Yeah yeah

How much more do I got to do for you so
That you will do it back, you got to show me love
You should be showing me love, what you thinkin' of
Just show me love, yeah

All I ever want from you, just show me that you love me too
You know that you got me, please don't take it for granted
All I ever want from you, just show me that you love me too
Baby you got me, please don't take it for granted
Yeah yeah

Girl you've got too realize that we're on the same side
Don't treat me wrong, 'cuz I love you
You see in every life, you know the rain will fall
But like the pouring down pourin' rain, yeah
Make it rain down love, hey make it rain down love

All I ever want from you, just show me that you love me too
You know that you got me, please don't take it for granted
All I ever want from you, just show me that you love me too
Baby you got me, please don't take it for granted
Yeah yeah
