From the album DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR

This song is basically us via Beatles via the Everlys. Again Jim's impeccable arrangement especially in the last chorus. One of my favorite parts. Written with our ol' buddy , Louis Natkin.

Lyrics

WHATEVER IT TAKES

If you want me to , I'd stumble through the fire
just to spend an hour with you.
If you asked me to , I'd say those simple words.
Can't that I'm long overdue.

There;s something in the way ,
you always know the right thing to say to me
and just because I love you I'll do...

Whatever it takes , baby ,you got it.
Whatever you want from me, well that's all right.
Whatever you want me to say ,
whatever kind of moves I should make.
Whatever it takes.

Sometimes in my dreams , I picture you and me
curled up in that old , blue chair.
Sometimes in my heart , an empty place is filled
when you walk in the room.

Sunrise seems to break ,
every single time I look into your face I see
that just because you love me I'll do....

[chorus]

[bridge;]
There's nothing you could ask me that I wouldn't do.
I'll be your lover , faithful and true.
I'll stand beside you and I'll always try to make it like you're dreaming of.

[chorus] out
