===UPDATE 3/23/11===

Some more information has come in on the wire about this song and actually a little bit more insight on the song Were All Women too; which will be appearing on the new EP Party All Goddamn Night. Anyway, Take My Time was put together just outside of Tulsa Oklahoma with Taylor Hanson on vocals, Andrew playing acoustic guitar, and Dan Haseltine on the electric piano. Once the song was written, a studio version was recorded (as archived below) with Andrew W.K. on bass and some hand percussion. It was all written and recorded in a single day. The same methods were used while writing Were All Women only on a different day, it was in collaboration with Peter Yanowitz. This quasi band camp (Hanson Fools Banquet) lasted for four days, which if you do the math leaves two other songs Andrew participated in that are still out there somewhere waiting for you to find them. :)

I betch-ya didnt know Andrew W.K. collaborated with Taylor Hanson (from Hanson) & Dan Haseltine (from Jars of Clay) for a song called Take My Time?! Its unclear who wrote what but all three are credited for writing the music and lyrics in 2007 at the Fools Banquet. That said, Taylor Hanson is the one who performs it hence, hes known for the song.

Take My Time Archived!

Here are the lyrics:

Ive never had a true obsession
but thats what you turned out to be
spent hours reeling
The days youre stealing
Well, they might be the death of me
take me alive
take my breath, my heartbeat inside
If you let me Ill give you
All thats worth taking
Take my time
Ive never needed conversation
To fill an empty afternoon
Your touch it wakes me
Your love it makes me
Every moment with you ends too soon
take me alive
take my breath, my heartbeat inside
If you let me Ill give you
All thats worth taking
Take my time
oh wont you take my time
