Whatever It Takes Lyrics - Lifehouse

Review The Song (30)



A strangled smile fell from your face
It kills me that I hurt you this way
The worst part is that I didn't even know
Now there's a million reasons for you to go
But if you can find a reason to stay

I'll do whatever it takes
To turn this around
I know what's at stake
I know that I've let you down
And if you give me a chance
Believe that I can change
I'll keep us together whatever it takes

She said "If we're gonna make this work
You gotta let me inside even though it hurts
Don't hide the broken parts that I need to see"
She said "Like it or not it's the way it's gotta be
sponsored links
You gotta love yourself if you can ever love me"

I'll do whatever it takes
To turn this around
I know what's at stake
I know that I've let you down
And if you give me a chance
And give me a break
I'll keep us together, I know you deserve much better

But remember the time I told you the way that I felt
That I'd be lost without you and never find myself
Let's hold onto each other above everything else
Start over, start over

I'll do whatever it takes
To turn this around
I know what's at stake
I know I've let you down
And if you give me a chance
And believe that I can change
I'll keep us together whatever it takes

I Love You HEINE | Reviewer: sillygirl | 2/16/12

My story is not really exactly like this song but I can relate with this song because he just walked away from me without any message. I am left alone and wonder why he did that. I'll do whatever it takes to keep us together. I want him to give me a chance...
I LOVE YOU HEINE

I love this song! | Reviewer: Ashley | 9/19/09

I really love this song and it sucks because it's true for me right now. It's like Lifehouse KNOWS what people go through. Just like I really like this guy and he likes me to but he made a mistake and I feel like it's my fault. He is broken and I want to fix him but he won't let me.

I WISH I COULD BE EVERY LITTLE THING YOU WANTED | Reviewer: Maricar | 7/30/09

IT'S REALLY AN AMAZING SONG.. SAD ALSO, I CAN RELATE TO IT.. SO MUCH PAIN WHEN YOU'RE INVOLVE IN A RELATIONSHIP WHERE BOTH PARTIES STILL KNOW THAT THEY STILL LOVE EACH OTHER THE SAME WAY THEY DID BUT THEY DECIDED TO END THE BEAUTIFUL STORY THEY HAD BUILT COZ THEY KNOW THAT WHATEVER THEY DO IT'S NOT WORKING ANYMORE.. BASICALLY IT IS REALLY DIFFICULT TO BREAK UP OR LEAVE SOMEONE YOU LOVE MORE THAN YOUR LIFE BUT THAT'S THE THING WE MUST ACCEPT..BUT IF YOU FIND YOURSELF DETERMINED TO WIN HIS/HER LOVE BACK, I MUST SAY DO THE RIGHT THING BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.. SHOW, TELL, MAKE THEM FEEL HOW IMPORTANT THEY ARE.. I LIKE THE LYRICS "I'LL KEEP US TOGETHER WHATEVER IT TAKES" PRECISELY, THAT'S THE BETTER THING TO DO.. YOU SHOULD KEEP YOU AND YOUR PARTNER TOGETHER WHATEVER IT TAKES.. ♫

bad memories | Reviewer: Broken | 4/20/09

My girlfriend said these exact words to me:

She said "If we're gonna make this work
You gotta let me inside even though it hurts
Don't hide the broken parts that I need to see"
She said "Like it or not it's the way it's gotta be
You gotta love yourself if you can ever love me"

Now that I think about it she may have been quoting this song, they were exactly the same words no difference at all... Though when she showed me this song she also told me we can never be together... That she loves me but isn't in love with me. How should I have taken that?

WOW | Reviewer: Bri-Bri | 3/14/09

These lyrics mean alot to me! I've dated this guy named blake a few times and he always gives up! its like no matter how hard i try he doesn't care! And now i just have to let him go! But for everyone else out there don;t give up DON'T let go!! I still love him!!!!!!!1

you and me | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/12/09

The first time I heard this song, I cried. It was everthing I had said to myself...and now its lyrics to a song. You know who you are, and you know what weve been through, and although at times it seems the hardest thing to do, I've learned how to forgive and love again, but your willingness to want me to heal has made it all possible. I will always love you, and I forgive you....Love me.

Thank you | Reviewer: Is it enough? | 11/13/08

Lifehouse never ceases to amaze and actually comfort me. Right now, in this point in my life, some things have blown up in my face and I feel far away from God. This song speaks to me because it is basically me saying that I'll 'do whatever it takes to turn this around'.

Granted, this song can definitely be about a breakup, and if that's how it impacts you, then more power to you. But for me...

Thank you Lifehouse.

the big moment's in life are made out of the small moment's | Reviewer: alex | 8/26/08

this is a great song unfortunatly i was unable to keep me and the one i loved togher . manny question's still stand . the wourst part is ive never stop loving her from the secound we meet till now.no matter what i do she will not listen to me . it's o.k she has her reason and only she understand's . i know and accepted there was time's i let her down but even then i refuse to think that is good enough reason to end a 7yr relation ship .what ever her real reasons where for ending this i hope they never come back and bite her.to everyone else make sure the ones you love know that at all time start now.

another message buried in the song? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/29/08

i read all these reviews about relationships...
i guess on the outside it looks like a lovesong for his ex girlfriend

but inside the message..
it also has a strong christian stance

She said "If we're gonna make this work
You gotta let me inside even though it hurts
Don't hide the broken parts that I need to see"
She said "Like it or not it's the way it's gotta be
You gotta love yourself if you can ever love me

she is basically like God and Jesus..
how letting them inside us can hurt because we always want to control our own lives..
and how we have to tell Them about all the things we did, not only becuase They already know but God is our comforter, our helper, our safe shelter.

whatever it takes to turn this around..
we all sinned...
and now in this song we finally realized what we've done and are trying to turn this around

even though theres no reason for God to keep holding on, that He still does

and that we'll do whatever it takes.

Why Being Skeptical? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/15/08

To all of you who thought the themes in Lifehouse's songs are repetitive or overused, give us a break.

Just like pictures, the tune, the rhythm, and the heart can describe a thousand words, it's never about the words man...it's about how you feel connected to these meanings behind them.

It's good but... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/31/08

...it's been done. It's been sung a million times by a million different artists in a million slightly different ways. I really do have a lot of respect for Lifehouse; they've been around for a while making some great tracks (this song has an awesome bass line), but don't you ever get sick of the usual "Rick Dees Top 40" archetypal song?

Look up "Too Much To Ask" by Arctic Monkeys - a perfect example of the same message (except you've probably never heard of it or them). If you're not familiar with them, don't write them off because of their name; Alex Turner (the lead vocalist/songwriter) is truly a remarkable writer.

Comatose | Reviewer: Zacharyyyyyyy | 3/28/08

I realize that a lot of people relate to these lyrics. That's exactly what I'm sure the band must have been going for, then, because there is no depth to these lyrics. Although it is a common theme, I'm sure any reviewer here could write more meaningful lyrics on the same exact topic. There is no message. It's not really tragedy. A tragedy is not being with the person in the first place. Still, many people who look at the charts really relate. So it has that.

2nd time around | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/26/08

To those of you who want your ex back, believe in it, it does happen. My ex-husband and I have been together since we were 14, we got married, had 3 beautiful children together and then unfortunately he strayed. We've been divorced for 5 years, but we also grew up alot, I found I am a strong person. About a year ago he asked for forgiveness and to start again. It's been a tremendous year, it took me a very long time to trust, but I'm happy to report that we are together and stronger than ever, it'll be 22 years that he's been a part of my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. That's why this song is great, he put it on his ringtone just for me!!

WOW | Reviewer: Leah | 3/12/08

This song hit me like woah. I fell for this guy and he made me believe he reallie loved me. I love him soo much and I would do nething to be with him. I just wish he would say he is sorrie and tell me how much he loves me again like he used to. I wish he was willing to do nething to make things good again between us. This song makes me cri because of the emotion behind it. Lifehouse is a great amazing band. And reallie kno how ta make their feelings show thru their songs.
xoxo much love
Leah
