"Take Me Out" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
So if you're lonely
You know I'm here waiting for you
I'm just a cross hair
I'm just a shot away from you
And if you leave here
You leave me broken, shattered, I lie
I'm just a cross hair
I'm just a shot, then we can die

I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say don't you know
You say you don't know
I say, take me out!

I say you don't show
Don't move, tide is low
I say, take me out!

I say you don't know
You say you don't know
I say, take me out!

If I move this could die
Eyes move this can die
I want you to take me out

I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say don't you know
You say you don't know
I say, take me out!

If I wane this could die
I wait this could die
I want you to take me out

If I move this could die
Eyes move this can die
Come on, take me out

I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here with you

    General CommentCrosshair nailed it. Gawd knows where he got the energy to write so much:) It's an excellent song by an excellent band... one of my favorites, although I probably say that about a few too many bands ;) The about a guy in love but he lacks confidence. Haven't met too many of those types in my lifetime. Wow, music makes me laugh....just thinking about a college-aged man named Yasime Rahim from Tanzania who's dad was a diplomat to Russia. Yasime asked me to marry him after we had known each other (sitting around listening to music) just two weeks. I laughed thinking he was joking. He immediately left the room and didn't speak with me for a few days....finally explaining that in his country not all people date first. Then he proposed again. Talk about feeling like a schumck for saying NO. We did begin a friendship, though, and he promised not to ask me again. Sorry for the story of my life; I had just forgotten about that first proposal...
