"I'm Taking You With Me" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
I made a habit of never making promises
That aren't easy to keep
And there you have it but now I'm making one
That is to keep you here with me

'Cause every second that goes by
I feel it's just a waste of time if I'm not with you

If home is where the heart is
Then my home is where you are
But it's getting, oh, so hard
To spend these days without my heart

So I'm taking you with me
Anywhere that I could ever want to be
For the rest of my life
I want you there with me

And if there ever comes a time
When I should have to leave
I hope you know
That I, I'm taking you with me

And so I'm trying to hold it all together
And make it through the day
When I'm just dying to drop it all and take your hand
So we can run away

From all the miles and the hours
That seem to endlessly devour
The time that I could be with you

If home is where the heart is
Then my home is where you are
But it's getting, oh, so hard
To spend these days without my heart

So I'm taking you with me
Anywhere that I could ever want to be
For the rest of my life
I want you there with me

And if there ever comes a time
When I should have to leave
I hope you know
That I, I'm taking you with me

Every second that goes by
Is one more second off my life
And it couldn't be more clear
I'm literally dying without you here

And every second that goes by
Is one more second off my life
And it couldn't be more clear
I'm dying without you here

Yeah, every second that goes by
Yeah, every second that goes by

So I'm taking you with me
Anywhere that I could ever want to be
For the rest of my life
I want you there with me

And if there ever comes a time
When I should have to leave
I hope you know
That I, I'm taking you with me

    General CommentMatt sings about a girl. Plain and simple. Quite a good song, I'd be wooed.

    General CommentIf home is where the heart is, then my home is where you are

    General CommentI'm not so sure that this is about a girl. Doesn't, "I'm taking you with me" seem a little bit off to say to a girl.

    A lot of people get mad when they hear this, but I think this song may be about God. "If home is wehre the heart is, then my home is where you are." That could just as easily be about Christ as about a girl.

    The line "I'm literally dying without you here" cinches it too. Songs are up for interpreation, and RK does write songs about girls, I'm just not sure that this one is about a girl.

    General CommentHmm... I think this song is just great! It is so controversial and you can look at it one way to make it seem like it is about a girl and you can look at it another way to make it seem like it is about God. Also, I think this song is very catchy :D

    General CommentMeh. I just say take it how you want.

    I can easily see how you could take it as being about a girl.

    Only part that has me thinking otherwise is 'I'm literally dying here without you' seems weird...

    General CommentI think he says that he's dying because his heart(which can represent either the girl or God) is not there with him and we all know that you need your heart to live. That's why he's "literally" dying.. in a non-literal kinda of way

    Uh.. yeah :p

    Awesome song nevertheless!

    General CommentI do agree with both points, though I'm leaning towards the girl side. Couldn't he be singing about leaving her because he had to move off to a different college or something? So he'd like to take her with him so they don't need to feel/be so apart.

    I don't know if any of you have feel this way, but I know there are people in my life who I'd feel like dying for if they disappeared. Anyway,
    whatever it's referring to, the song is great.

    General CommentThis is another great song, yes it could be about God like most of there songs it depends how you want to look at it, but i think of my girlfreind and how im planning my whole life with her and how its hard when were not together and how no matter where or what i wanna go or do in life i know its easy to promise she will be there shes my future wife and just like this song im taking her with me

    General CommentI think what he means by "I'm literally dying without you here" is that "every second that goes by" is "one more second off his life" - in other words, every second he is one second closer to the death, which is inevitable, so he wants to spend as much time with the girl (I'm taking this song to be about a girl because G-d is everywhere, so the "miles and the hours" couldn't really separate anyone from Him) as he possibly can.
