‘Take This Life’ Lyrics by Frank O’Connor (Halo: The Fall of Reach)


Following our articles on MTV VMA nominated composer Tom Salta score for Halo: The Fall of Reach and his creation of Halo’s first ever pop song Take This Life you can find the lyrics to the moving song below:

Take this life,
And hold it, tender in your hand.
Take this life,
And mold it according to the plan.

They’ll move on –
A memory, leaving us behind.

You never asked me who I was,

But saw me for what I had to be.
You never wasted time on love
When knowing no truth could set us free.

You’ll move on –
A memory, leaving us behind.
We’re your legacy,
Abandoned, the remnants of a time.

I’ll never know a mother’s love again,
I’ll never be beside her in the end.

The world just goes around, but every day I’m falling,
And I reach out, but no one hears me calling.
So I know now: I’ll never live at all again.
Will you?

You never asked me who I am,
So tell me, did you ever give a damn?

Lyrics: Frank O’Connor, Jillian Aversa and Tom Salta
Composition, Arrangement & Production: Tom Salta
Vocals: Jillian Aversa
