Bester Song im Jahr 2017: Whatever It Takes - Imagine Dragons

  • Mit “Thunder” lieferten die Imagine Dragons einen DER Hits 2017. Und während dieser geniale Ohrwurm noch immer präsent ist, schleicht sich schon der nächste Hit ins Ohr.


    „Whatever It Takes“ ist die Nachfolge-Single der Indie-Rocker aus Las Vegas und die inzwischen dritte Singleauskopplung des Erfolgsalbums „Evolve“. Die Band legt damit ein ganz schönes Tempo vor. Denn vor gerade mal fünf Jahren erschien ihr Debutalbum. Und von dieser Einstellung handelt auch der Text von „Whatever It Takes“.


    Keine Zeit für Selbstzweifel, sondern volle Fahrt voraus. Es geht um Durchbrüche im Leben und darum, das Beste aus sich heraus zu holen.

    Whatever It Takes Liedtext:


    [Verse 1]

    Falling too fast to prepare for this

    Tripping in the world could be dangerous

    Everybody circling it's vulturous

    Negative, nepotist

    Everybody waiting for the fall of man

    Everybody praying for the end of times

    Everybody hoping they could be the one

    I was born to run, I was born for this


    [Pre-Chorus]

    Whip, whip

    Run me like a race horse

    Pull me like a ripcord

    Break me down and build me up

    I wanna be the slip, slip

    Word upon your lip, lip

    Letter that you rip, rip

    Break me down and build me up


    [Chorus]

    Whatever it takes

    'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins

    I do whatever it takes

    'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains

    Whatever it takes


    [Post-Chorus]

    Yeah, take me to the top

    I'm ready for whatever it takes

    'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins

    I do what it takes


    [Verse 2]

    Always had a fear of being typical

    Looking at my body feeling miserable

    Always hanging on to the visual

    I wanna be invisible

    Looking at my years like a martyrdom

    Everybody needs to be a part of 'em

    Never be enough, I'm the prodigal son

    I was born to run, I was born for this


    [Pre-Chorus]

    Whip, whip

    Run me like a race horse

    Pull me like a ripcord

    Break me down and build me up

    I wanna be the slip, slip

    Word upon your lip, lip

    Letter that you rip, rip

    Break me down and build me up


    [Chorus]

    Whatever it takes

    'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins

    I do whatever it takes

    'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains

    Whatever it takes


    [Post-Chorus]

    Yeah, take me to the top

    I'm ready for whatever it takes

    'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins

    I do what it takes


    [Bridge]

    Hypocritical, egotistical

    Don't wanna be the parenthetical, hypothetical

    Working onto something that I'm proud of, out of the box

    An epoxy to the world and the vision we've lost

    I'm an apostrophe

    I'm just a symbol to remind you that there's more to see

    I'm just a product of the system, a catastrophe

    And yet a masterpiece, and yet I'm half-diseased

    And when I am deceased

    At least I go down to the grave and die happily

    Leave the body of my soul to be a part of me

    I do what it takes


    [Chorus]

    Whatever it takes

    'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins

    I do whatever it takes

    'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains

    Whatever it takes


    [Post-Chorus]

    Yeah, take me to the top

    I'm ready for whatever it takes

    'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins

    I do what it takes
