"Take Me Away" as written by Avril Ramona Lavigne, Don Gilmore and Evan David Taubenfeld....
I cannot find a way to describe it
It's there inside, all I do is hide
I wish that it would just go away
What would you do, you do, if you knew
What would you do

All the pain I thought I knew
All the thoughts lead back to you
Back to what was never said
Back and forth inside my head
I can't handle this confusion
I'm unable, come and take me away

I feel like I am all alone
All by myself I need to get around this
My words are cold, I don't want them to hurt you
If I show you, I don't think you'd understand
'Cause no one understands

All the pain I thought I knew
All the thoughts lead back to you
Back to what was never said
Back and forth inside my head
I can't handle this confusion
I'm unable, come and take me away

I'm going nowhere (on and on and)
I'm getting nowhere (on and on and on)
Take me away
I'm going nowhere (on and off and off and on)
And off and on

All the pain I thought I knew
All the thoughts lead back to you
Back to what was never said
Back and forth inside my head
I can't handle this confusion
I'm unable, come and take me away

Take me away
Break me away
Take me away

    General CommentThis IS a good song. It's awesome. I think it makes anyone who ever called her a poser think twice. This song is so edgy, it's awesome. Makes me want to get up and throw stuff!

    General Commenti love listening to this song after i havent heard it for a really long time. it says exactly how i feel sometimes- like the intro

    "I cannot find a way,
    To describe it,
    It there, Inside,
    All I do is hide,
    I wish that it would just go away,
    What would you do?
    You do?
    If you knew,
    What would you do"

    everyone needs someone to help them figure out whats going on in their heads

    General CommentThis is a great song! When I listen to it, it's like Avril took the things right out of my head & made them into words & music. And you're right, "crashnburn5436" it does make the people who crown her "poseur" think twice.

    General Commenti`m thinking that this is someone caused her emotional pain and that she needs to go away..vague, i know.

    General CommentIt could be about anybody you have a crush on, but the lines "What would you do if you knew" and "I can't handle this confusion" do remind me more of same-sex crushes.

    General CommentI think this song is about a crush that the singer is afraid to tell the person they are in love with. She wonder if maybe the other person feels the same, but is also too afriad to tell her. Thinking "what if". Since, she won't admit it she'll never know and this not knowing ends up eating her up inside. Each day she wonders if she could be with this person who she really loves, but she just gets frustrated and eventually wishes that she never even fell in love with the person since it would make her life so much easier.

    It builds up so much that she just wishes someone would "come and take me away". That could mean two things. It could be death/suicide because she decides it's not worth it or she could just wish for someone else to date so she can just say she's taken and not have to worry about this crush.

    General CommentI think this song is great

    and it can mean different things

    but i think generally it's about being confused emotionally and not knowing what to do about it
    and being basically confused about love.

    General CommentIs it just me or is this song a blatant ripoff of Fefe Dobson's "take me away"?
