    Default some enquiries

    Dear teacher,

    The following words in the quotation mark are from the song Everything I do, I do it for you. But I don't quite understand some points.

    "Look into my heart, you will find ".
    "There's nothin' there to hide. "
    "So take me as I am, take my life. " Here, “take” means “accept”,right?
    "I would give it all, I would sacrifice. "What do “it” and “all” refer to?
    "I can't help it, there's nothin' I want more. " What does “I can’t help it” mean?

    Thank you very much.

    "So take me as I am, take my life. "
    Here, “take” means “accept”,right?
    The first 'take' means, accept, yes. :D The second 'take' means, make use of; she's giving her life to him.

    "I would give it all, I would sacrifice.
    "What do “it” and “all” refer to?
    I believe "it" means, relationship, and "all" means, everthing (i.e., emotion/spirit) she has.

    "I can't help it, there's nothin' I want more. "
    What does “I can’t help it” mean?
    It means, I can't control my feelings (for you). My feelings for you control me.

    All the best, :D
