"Take Me Away" as written by Tom Higgenson and Danny C. Wilde....
I know we just got here
But I think it's time to go
I didn't want to believe it but now I know
"You know who" just walked in
And she didn't come alone
I can't stand to see this, get me home

[Chorus]
Take me away
I'm gonna hurt somebody
Take me away right now
How could she say she wanted more
You better take me away right now

I thought she was perfect
She thought I was perfect too
Perfect until she found someone new
Now I'm stuck here watching her
I can't take this abuse
What can this guy do that I can't do

[Chorus]

    General CommentBasically this song is about a break up and see the girl with someone new. Heres a little break down...

    I know we just got here,
    But I think it's time to go
    I didn't wanna believe you
    But now I know
    You know who just walked in
    And she didn't come alone
    I can't stand to see this
    Get me home
    (This guy is somewhere with his friends such as a party and the girl walks in with her new guy. Hes just like man I dont wanna see this.)

    Take me away
    I'm gonna hurt somebody
    Take me away right now
    How could she say
    She wanted more
    You'd better
    Take me away right now
    (Now hes like man I wanna get out of here. Hes feeling like hes gonna fight her new man, or someone else. Then he also thinking man how could she say more when I gave her everything)

    I thought she was perfect
    She thought I was perfect too
    Perfect until she found someone new
    Now I'm stuck here watching her
    I can't take this abuse
    What does this guy do that I can't do?
    (Now hes remembering their relationship. How it was perfect until someone new came along. Now hes looking at them thinking man, this guy was lame what does he have that I dont have.)

    That pretty much sums it up in my opinion.

    General Commenti love this song.
    its great.
    the lyrics just jumped out to me one day, they're quite simple but so honest, fantastically honest.
    and there's no better way to put that kind of experience into song. :]

    General CommentCrossmyheart13, i totally agree with you. And yes i listen to this song to vent anger. i wish the lyrics were deeper thoough. I kinda picture a guy having to be held back when hes trying to run at the new guy like they always do in the movies.

    General CommentI really like this song. But, pathetically, everytime I hear it (aside from the feeling of being pumped) I think of TheRealWorld. I just imagine Danny from RW:Austin and that whole thing with him and Melinda. IF anyone followed RW. It was just him being jealous of other guys and them going on and off all the time.
