"Take Me I'm Yours" as written by Christopher Henry Difford and Glenn Martin Tilbrook....
I've come across the desert
To greet you with a smile
My camel looks so tired
It's hardly worth my while
To tell you of my travels
Across the golden east
I see your preparations
Invite me first to the feast
Take me I'm yours
Because dreams are made of this
Forever there'll be
A heaven in your kiss

Amusing belly dancers
Distract me from my wine
Across Tibetan mountains
Are memories of mine
I've stood some ghostly moments
With natives in the hills
Recorded here on paper
My chills and thrills and spills
Take me I'm yours
Because dreams are made of this
Forever there'll be
A heaven in your kiss

It's really been some welcome
You never seem to change
A grape to tempt your leisure
Romantic gestures strange
My eagle flies tomorrow
It's a game I treasure dear
To seek the helpless future
My love at last I'm here
Take me I'm yours
Because dreams are made of this
Forever there'll be
A heaven in your kiss

    General CommentI think this song is about searching for and finding God. It really makes sense if you listen to it with an ecstatic visionary experience in mind. To me. Like when the Sufi dancers take pot and journey through their minds to the higher love of submission to God.

    To me anyway. I don't know if Squeeze took any stuff like that or not, but that song makes me wonder if they were into Rumi who writes religious poetry about experience of the divine, often calling God "love" or "friend"

    I know it's a long shot, but it sort of shouts this out to me.

    My InterpretationThe narrator is using his tales of adventure as a seduction technique, much as Othello does:

    I will a round unvarnished tale deliver
    Of my whole course of love; what drugs, what charms,
    What conjuration and what mighty magic,
    For such proceeding I am charged withal,
    I won his daughter.

    Wherein I spake of most disastrous chances,
    Of moving accidents by flood and field,
    Of hair-breadth 'scapes i' the imminent deadly breach,
    Of being taken by the insolent foe
    And sold to slavery, of my redemption thence
    And portance in my travels' history.

    General CommentThere's an error. "To seek the helpless future" should be "to seek the helpless CREATURE". Hunting with eagles as a metaphor for seduction.

    Uh, and I don't really think this song is about "finding God". It's about finding 'tang. LOL

    My InterpretationHeroin...? Surely not...

    Over the years I've come to realise how many great "love songs" have been written in ode to the songwriter's love affair with Heroin - Perfect Day (Lou Reed), There She Goes (The La's), Another Girl, Another Planet (The Only Ones), Golden Brown (The Stranglers) and Enjoy the Silence (Depeche Mode) to name but a few. Listen to the lyrics and you can't help but know that these songwriters were writing about a genuine, almost romantic relationship with this substance...

    Glenn Tilbrook's own journey through the world of Heroin use is a matter of public record. Having never been there myself the rest is purely speculative interpretation on my part...

    Remember this IS just an interpretation - I wouldn't want any silly buggers getting all offended by it...

    So let's look at the lyrics...

    I've come across the desert -
    To greet you with a smile
    (Metaphor for craving and finally gaining a hit...)
    My camel looks so tired -
    It's hardly worth my while
    (Feeling washed out and lifeless beforehand)
    To tell you of my travels -
    Across the golden East
    (Refers to the Golden Triangle - a region in Northern Thailand, Laos and Myanmar, infamous for opium production)
    I see your preparations
    Invite me first to feast...

    Take me, I'm yours -
    Because dreams are made of this,
    (Drug speaks to user/user speaks to drug...)
    Forever there'll be a heaven in your kiss...
    (Speaks of the romance in this particular "love affair"...)

    Amusing belly dancers -
    Distract me from my wine
    (The distraction of being high...)
    Across Tibetan mountains -
    Are memories of mine
    (Feelings of great distance/dislocation from the world; troubles and memories seem a world away)
    I've stood some ghostly moments
    With natives in the hills
    Recorded here on paper
    My chills and thrills and spills...
    (Self-referential - writing song lyrics about this drug experience...)

    It's really been some welcome -
    You never seem to change
    (Euphoric feelings of welcome comfort - feeling good again...)
    A grape to tempt your leisure
    (The classical thematic link between grapes and temptation/temptation of drugs...)
    Romantic gestures strange
    (Speaks of awareness of the strange nature of having such romantic thoughts/feelings...)
    My Eagle flies tomorrow
    (I'll get high again tomorrow...)
    It's a game I treasure dear
    (Speaks again of enjoyment of all these experiences...)
    To seek the helpless creature
    (Refers to the sense of helplessness experienced whilst under the influence...)
    My love, at last I'm here
    (Back in the lovers' embrace...)
