"Take Me Back" as written by and Craig Robert Nicholls....
There's no point in doin' what I've done
Lives are goddamned ruined like the runts

Take me back to the weather
Bend the tracks wish forever
Take me back for I go down there no more

Chew us up and spit us out again
Wavin' bye and getting high on trends

Take me back to the weather
Bend the tracks and wish forever
Take me back for I go down there no more

Well the road is long
But I know I can survive
Been away so long
Anyway I saw what I could find

    General CommentThis is the best song on the whole album i reckon, it has this really smooth country vibe that takes you away to the clouds, sunset and feelings of nostalgia.

    I think its about how everything has changed craigs life by the media,he has been through so much, mostly hardship and he just wants to go back to where he started, where everything is pure and peaceful like the weather, before he descends into greater struggles.

    General CommentI agree, the best slow song on the cd , and its up there in the entire career, amnesia is pretty cool too. I listened to it over and over and I keep on finding new good things about it, indeed a country feeling, but like country meets the 60's vocals into Craig's hot voice.
    The Vines is one of my truly favorite bands because of songs like this.

    General CommentI LOVE this song more & more the more i listen to it. I love the fact that the psychedelic rockers The Vines made a gorgeous country-type ballad that even has a quasi-spanish riff thrown in perfectly. I love this guy's voice. Simple words, lovely voice.
