"Take My Hand" as written by Alexander Deleon, Alex Marshall, Ian Crawford, Cash Colligan, Alex Johnson and Brian Lee....
Calm your nerves now
Don't worry
Just breathe
Are you sure now
Don't bother packing
Just leave

Said they wanted change
I hope that
You remain the same
To show that
This is not a game
Lets end this tragedy today

Now take my hand
And we will run away
Down to this place that I know
How did this night become the enemy
It's over, it's over, it's over.

Lay down with me
Let me hold you
Baby just breathe
This is ending and we will get through eventually

Said they wanted change
I hope that
You remain the same
To show that this is not a game
We'll end this tragedy today

Now take my hand
And we will run away
Down to this place that I know
How did this night become the enemy
It's over, it's over, it's over.

Now take my hand
And we will run away
Down to this place that I know
How did this night become the enemy
It's over, it's over, it's over.

We wont be apart of
We wont be apart of this
We wont be apart of
We wont be apart of this
We wont be apart of
We wont be apart of this
We wont be apart of
We wont, we wont.

Now take my hand
And we will run away
Down to this place that I know
How did this night become the enemy
It's over, it's over, it's over.

Now take my hand
And we will run away
Down to this place that I know
How did this night become the enemy
It's over, it's over, it's over.

Now take my hand
And we will run away
Down to this place that I know
How did this night become the enemy
It's over, it's over, it's over.

We wont be apart of
We wont be apart of this
We wont be apart of
We wont, we wont.

    General Comment"My name is Take My Hand and here is my story.

    This song was my baby for a long time. Growing up, I listened to a lot of music. I’d sit on my bed with my cheap Squire guitar, and learn how to play everything from “Back In Black” by ACDC to “Radio” by Alkaline Trio, or sing at the top of my lungs when my parents weren’t home to avoid the embarrassment of being heard. As I got older, I started realizing a few things. One was that I wanted to be musician, and two was that I was really annoyed and irritated at most of the songs that I heard and listened to (just heard or just listened. Both is redundant.) They were all sad. All were about heartbreak, depression, vengeance, and not being able to cope with reality and all of the things that come with it. With that, I made a promise to myself. I swore that if I was ever in a position where my music could be heard, I would do something with it. I would make a statement and try to do some good with six strings, a pen, and my voice.

    Take My Hand is about hope. It is about believing. I’ve always believed that if you stay strong and find the strength within yourself to hold your head high and to keep your eyes to the sky, good things will come. So I wrote a story about a young girl… lost… alone… all but gone. She was begging to be saved. What a lot of people don’t realize is that people who are lonely, depressed, or in a hard spot want to be saved. They’re waiting for a pair of hands to push through their sky and to lift them up off of the ground. I thought maybe, just maybe, I could be those hands. I could SAVE someone. Do you know how that feels? It takes just as much courage to lend a helping hand as it does to receive it.

    My favorite lyrics of this song might be “Hoping that you remain the same.” This is short and simple. Don’t change for anybody. I think you guys are fine the way you are. I love you all for it. Be yourself, stay true to yourself, and stay true to your heart and I promise you’ll be just fine.

    Anyways, this song is telling the young lady to stay calm and to “just breathe.” Lyrics such as “We won’t be a part of this” are all about standing as tall and strong as concrete when the current comes to reel you in. You don’t have to be a fish on the end of a hook… you can be stronger, bigger, and better than the horrible things around you. Swim through the negativity. Search within yourself and find your passion in life. The things that keep you going, that keep your gears spinning and your wine flowing.

    We need to believe in ourselves. Sometimes that’s all we have. I beg you–friends, family, people that hate me and will rip me apart tomorrow on message boards, strangers–lend a helping hand. Be someone’s safe place. Shelter them from the cold rain that seems to fall fairly often. Take their hand and run away. As the song says…this night doesn’t have to be the enemy. It can be your best friend. Most importantly…any night could be a new beginning.

    It’s up to you.

    -Alexander Michael"

    General CommentI sort of feel like their battle isnt so much external but internal.
    Like they feel they're loosing it.. the relationship is slipping and what they have left they're trying to savor before it's time to let it go.
    It especially makes sense if you read it as Knight and not night
    Or at least I kind of want it to be a tragic love story like that XD

    General CommentFor some reason when I think of this song I think of Romeo and Juliet. I get the vibe that people dont want them together, so they need to run away and "not be a part" of what everyone else wants.
