You Can’t Take What You Don’t Have
WhiteHeart

Shaun, would you bring my slippers?
My dancin’ slippers.


Strip it clean
Chain my hands
And take my land

Cut my hair
Try to shut my mouth
I’ll still speak-out

Tie me up
Close my eyes
You can hypnotize

You can tear me apart
But you’ll never touch my heart
‘Cause you can’t take what you don’t have

Hear the whispered warnings
Down the corridor of time
Crack the whip
Pull the chains
But the story will unwind

See the drawn-out faces
Live the history
Look into the children’s eyes
This is what you’ll reap

Strip it clean
Chain my hands
And take my land

Cut my hair
Try to shut my mouth
I’ll still speak-out

Tie me up
And close my eyes
You can hypnotize

You can tear me apart
But you’ll never touch my heart
‘Cause you can’t take what you don’t have
You can’t take what you don’t have
You can’t take what you don’t have
Oh, you don’t have me

Here comes the government
Knockin’ at my door
They’ve tried to take it all
Now they’re back for more

I know what they’re after
But there’s nothin’ they can do
‘Cause the heart and the soul of the ages
Is somethin’ I won’t lose

Strip it clean
Chain my hands
And take my land

Cut my hair
Try to shut my mouth
I’ll still speak-out

Tie me up
Close my eyes
You can even hypnotize

You can tear me apart
But you’ll never touch my heart
‘Cause you can’t take what you don’t have
You can’t take what you don’t have
You can’t take what you don’t have
You can’t take what you don’t have

You don’t have me

Strip it clean
Chain my hands

Cut my hair
Try to shut my mouth

Tie me up
Close my eyes

You can tear me apart
But you’ll never touch my heart

‘Cause you can’t take what you don’t have

You can’t take what you don’t have

You can’t take what you don’t have

You can’t take what you don’t have

You can’t take what you don’t have

You can’t take what you don’t have

  5. Really appreciate that stanza:

    You can tear me apart
    But you’ll never touch my heart
    ‘Cause you can’t take what you don’t have

    The repeated theme of you can't take what you don't have throughout the song is a valuable reminder.

    Thanks for posting this.

  9. WhiteHeart is a Christian rock band (obviously) that was really big on contemporary Christian radio back in the 80's and 90's. They are currently disbanded (I think). Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Tricia!!! I hope Tigger liked it.
