"I'll Take You On" as written by Jay Clifford and Howie Day....
Make me fall down
Make me get up
And if I'm alright
Make sure I'm scared to death
Maybe I'm useless
If I just could remember
You make me feel nervous and I'll
Make you surrender
I'll take you on
Yeah I'll take you on

I'll give it all away
But you don't
But you don't
I'll give it all away
But you don't
feel much better

You said it yourself
You said I'm not ready
I'm tellin' myself
But it's not sinking in
Maybe I'm new at this
Or is it just you're reaction
Be my illusion and I'll
Be your distaction
I'll take you on
I'll take you on

I'll give it all away
But you don't
But you don't
I'll give it all away
But you don't
feel much better

oh, would it hurt
it wouldn't hurt to see you again
do you see what i meant
when I told you before
that I never wanted
to feel like this again, no

I'll give it all away
But you don't
But you don't
I'll give it all away
But you don't
feel much better

Can we stop all the world now
Sooner or later
I'll lose all control now
When the rain stops we'll end it
Whoa, now
Nothing to fear here
In my baby's arms
I'll take you on
I'll take you on
I'll take you on
I'll take you on

    General CommentThe end of the song should read-

    Can we stop all the world now
    Sooner or later
    I lose all control now

    When the rain stops we'll end it
    whoa, now
    Nothing to fear here
    In my baby's arms

    I'll take you on (X4)

    Anyway, I think the song is about two people being together because they desparately need eachother.
    The girl he is singing about may be depressed or unstable in some way. He wants to see her as being right for him. She wants her to be his illusion, but also he wants to be her distraction for whatever is going on in her life.
    *Be my illusion and I'll be your distraction*

    At the end where I corrected the lyrics I think he is saying that they each have nothing to fear as long as they are there for eachother.
    *Nothing to fear here
    In my baby's arms*

    General Commenti think its about the beginning of a relationship and howie is convincing her that hes willing to 'give it all away' and do anything for her love. i think he has to convince her because she 'says (hes) not ready'.

    General CommentIt's about 2 heartbroken people who find each other. They're both scared to trust again, but the love and attraction they feel for one another is so strong they'll try to give it a chance.

    One of my favorite Howie songs.
